    I object to the proposed height of these buildings which will place a further blight on what was a lovely green vista when entering the City of Knox. With the horrible "leggo" buildings opposite with washing about the only sign of occupation visible they really do downgrade the vista of Knox. I also object to any reduction in car parking as there is no other parking available in the area except to overflow into Regency Park Estate residential streets.

    Delivered to local councillor Jackson Taylor. They are yet to respond.

    Sorry to say but I don't think the Knox Council really cares about parking problems.

    Kubix (the Lego building), Knoxia and Maison (127 Tyner Road) with the latter two not yet finished will definitely cause problems for residents and two nearby schools.

    Perhaps we will get a reduction in our rates now as we are certainly becoming over developed.

    David,

    If you wish to lodge a formal objection I would encourage you to get in touch with us on 9298 8000. In terms of parking, the regulations surrounding this are State Government mandated and forcing extra parking beyond these regulations on developers is not possible though we may like to. With ever increasing population there is a responsibility and direction from state government that the increase is spread across the city and each area must have ways to deal with it. In Knox we have areas to which you refer to keep our residential areas mainly single and dual occupancy with allowance from some townhouses on bigger blocks by allowing apartments and bigger developments in areas along main roads, which are located within transport hubs (smart bus, railway stations etc) or Major activity centers like Burwood Hwy opposite Westfield. By doing that we are directing higher density development to which you refer to those areas and easing pressure on our residential areas. As times change and the number of people in Australia and especially Victoria grow, we too must grow, it is inevitable. But Knox has very strong local planning policies and plans in place that allow us to maintain our green and leafy vibe whilst allowing for growth.

    I would like to know the current state of the proposed development. Is the development going ahead or refused? Can I request to be kept informed of any progress regarding this possible development?

    Kind regards
    Jingjing

    Thanks for hanging around Mr Taylor. Obviously Knox council wasn't a real priority for you and parking is getting worse.
