    Regarding the 4 townhouse development at 207 Rattray road. We believe the development of 4 townhouses is going to over shadow the character of the area and will also impact on the already dangerous situation of the parking close to the blind bend that is close to sherbourne road. Parking in this particular area is already at a dangerous level and even if each townhouse has a two car garage it will still increase the danger in this area. We would be more than happy to accept two townhouse or possibly three with some strict design requirements to the dwelling and screening requirements to the landscape. We were also told by council that there will be no future 3 dwelling developments in this area. We would protest vigorously if approval was given with such a large development taking into account the 9 meter easement from the rear fence and the 40% ratio of land to house requirements.

    BANYULE COUNCIL YOU ARE PACK OF ARSEHOLES.
    I HAVE LIVED IN RATTRAY ROAD SINCE 1983 AND WE CANNOT GET A FOOTPATH FINISHED IN THIS PART OF RATTRAY ROAD, BUT YOU AHOLES LET 4 NEW UNITS GO UP. WITH ALL THESE BLOODY RATES BUILD US A FOOTPATH. DO NOT LET 4 MORE UNITS COME TO RATTRAY ROAD BE WARNED WE ARE SICK OF THE BLOODY TRAFFIC AND OUR LOCAL COUNCILLOR COULD NOT GIVE A DAM. YES I AM ANGRY. YOU ARE A BLOODY USELESS COUNCIL.

    Being a close neighbour to the proposed development, I have been given paperwork indicating that council rejected this proposal and the developers are taking it to VCAT. I think we should all get on board to put forward an objection to them. I certainly intend to! I think the deadline is July 20th.

    The developers must not be allowed to build 4 townhouses / multi dwelling at this address or any where in the area. Well done to Banyule Council in rejecting this proposal and good luck at VCAT.

  5. Damien Martin commented

    The proposed development is excessive with buildings occupying well over 60% of the site.

    The proposed Unit 4 has a deck on a raised level as close as 1.565 mtrs from the existing boundary overlooking the property to the rears yard. This would be an encroachment to privacy.

    There are no plans for appropriate privacy screening between the existing properties, yet propose 18 meter high internal fences between proposed units.

    This development does not take into consideration the reduction of pervious surfaces increasing the risks of flooding to neighboring properties.

    The proposal does not keep within the streetscape character, block 211 through to 195 Rattray Road are all either single or duel occupancy dwellings only.

    This development is not in character with the area and detracts severely from the open spaces that appealed to my family when moving to Montmorency.

    I genuinely feel heartbroken as I watch the beautiful unique suburb of Montmorency, the envy of all who pass through morphing into an over developed brick & concrete multi complex of townhouses. The 207 Rattray Rd proposal is a gross over development of the site. It is not in keeping within the character of the surrounding dwellings which are either single or dual occupancy. The loss of vegetation & habitat for our local fauna is a gross planning error if allowed to proceed. We in Stephens St are located within the floodplain & the loss of natural surface to absorb water runoff could be detrimental to our own properties as the course of water naturally flows off Rattray Rd properties down to us.
    The encroachment of towering walls near on property boundaries is a violation of privacy & should not be permitted to cause existing residents constant concern. Lets hope that VCAT has the common sense to uphold Banyule Council's rejection of the proposal & the local community finally gets a win!

    As a 40 year resident of Stephen street I cannot believe that anyone with a modicum of knowledge of the area would contemplate allowing 207 Rattray road to be developed as a 4 dwelling property.
    I have just travelled along this section of Rattray road at 7.30pm and there were 20 cars parked on either side of the road making it impossible for vehicles travelling in opposite directions to pass each other. An accident waiting to happen!

    This parking congestion is caused by the already approved subdivisions all along this section of Rattray road.This area is already totally overdeveloped and is being compounded by current developments at 213 Rattray road and 178 Sherbourne road.

    Attempting to exit Rattray road into Sherbourne road is risky and a serious accident could easily occur at this roundabout. Cars are often held up on the Rattray road bank attempting to enter Sherbourne road.

    I am opposed to the proposal of 4 dwellings at 207 Rattray road. This part of Rattray road is hazardous regarding parked cars close to a blind corner and traffic build up at peak hour from that position down to the Sherbourne road roundabout. That section of Rattray road is in dire need of proper footpaths. I propose council tends to that issue rather than the contingent coveting of revenue through rates on tiny houses on tiny blocks that are inconsistent with the Monty feel.

  9. Carol Sheehan commented

    Banyule Council really donot give a cuss what the people think, there is hardly any parking in the street now and they want to add more bloody units, so instead of 2 cars we will not get 8+ cars. I am so opposed to these units going up. Sophie Kerss is right we need footpaths but I have been asking for 30 years on that. The council needs to look at the people who live around this development, I have been living in Rattray Road since 1983, and I NEVER NEVER HAD TO WAIT UP TO 5 MINUTES TO GET OUT OF MY DRIVEWAY. Banyule Council please say NO.
