    I object to this development because it is out of character with the surrounding area.

    The council commissioned a Heritage Expect in February 2016 to make recommendations for what controls to put on the Anne Street precinct on page 5 and 6 of this document.

    This house is part of the Anne Street Precinct in the Wyndham Housing strategy.

    Having double story houses using in the Anne Street Precinct is out of character with the surrounding area.

    The house is a fine example of post WW2 housing. Any new development should keep the existing building and any changes should use existing materials, in respecting the heritage value of this house.

    I strongly object to this development because it is completely out of character with the surrounding area.

    This house falls within the Anne Street precinct and should be retained and respected as such. There are no other double story dwellings within the area, and I don't believe having multiple dwellings on one block of land fits within the plan either.

    Any new development should retain the existing building and any changes should use existing materials, in respecting the heritage value of this house.

    Paul & Lisa, your objections will fall on deaf ears...Council can collect 4 x rates instead of only 1 rates...I believe money seems to be the driving force behind every planning decision made by this greedy council...why else would they ruin so many character filled areas within Werribee...try to find out the statistics on how many objections against single subdivisions in Werribee are upheld by council - zero I believe, regardless of reasoning.

    I too strongly object to this development because it is out of character with the surrounding area.

    This proposal goes against Clause 16.01-3S of the Wyndham Planning scheme in that it doesn't contribute anything to housing diversity in the area.

    This proposal goes against Clause 55.02-1 of the Wyndham Planning scheme in relation to neighbourhood character.

    This proposal goes against clause 55.06-1 of the Wyndham Planning scheme in relation to the design detail objective

    This proposal goes against clause 65.01 of the Wyndham Planning scheme

    Linda, the application has actually been withdrawn because of what we have mentioned above. It is not going ahead, so no - our objections didn't fall on deaf ears. Cheers.

    Lisa, great news indeed, hopefully the beginning of Council taking into account the groundswell of community concerns regarding how some planning policies and guidelines are applied to the detriment of the suburb.
