    Catering for only 5 car parking spaces with this development is absurd.
    The local streets cannot absorb an additional 25+ cars parked in addition to all the other commuter cars parked for using the train on waterloo road.
    Suggest they need to consider a basement car park arrangement with the development

    Will the council take on the responsibility to automatically reject any planning application that proposes a reduction in car parks. Cars are an inevitable part of life today unless and until an alternate system of travel is invented. The residents of this council have had enough of these planning applications.

  4. Lyn commented

    It is getting ridiculous having triple storey or higher dwellings built in this area, especially next to single storey dwellings.
    Would the Councillors be as quick to approve such a proposal if it was next to their home - I think not.
    Parking is already an issue in side streets near the train station and reduced parking for these developments is a joke.
    The developers need to be stopped.

  5. Oak Park Resident wrote to local councillor John Kavanagh

    As there's is now a huge increase to the number of residents, you need to look at widening Snell Grove.

    Snell Grove is a mess at most times of the day, only 1 car can get through and it's the main road to the shops, train as well as schools in the area. The nature strip is wide and the road can be widened if you're going to continue to allow car parking.

    You need a plan to do this, you can't keep approving developments with no infrastructure plans to support them. There will be more developments to come in this street. Look at Rhodes parade as an example, cars are not impeaded.

    I think this is a fantastic development. With the increased need for high to medium density housing closer to the city, it is developments like this that suit the needs of people who require direct access to public transport.

    The time of multiple car households or even a car at all is starting to end.

    The demographics of Moreland and Oak Park are changing and it's these types of developments that create access to public transport, bike paths (the inclusion of bike storage in the plans is great) and local shops.

    This development will see an uplift to the patronage and economic growth to the area.
