    As a 'Significant' building in the City of Boroondara, the Kew Historical Society wishes to declare an interest in any proposed re-development.

  2. Kerrie Knott commented

    I would also like to express my interest in any planned redevelopment of 415-417 High Street Kew as a resident and great supporter of the heritage of Boroondara.
    I oppose inappropriate redevelopment and the destruction of our history and historical buildings in the city of Boroondara. I have had recent experience with protection of a heritage building and have been horrified at the complete lack of respect for our heritage buildings within our boundaries

    We oppose any development that will be a second addition or visible from the street.

    Street scope needs to be preserved including natural lighy to street.

    Currently council has approved an array of high rises along high street including a monstrosity next to kew recreational center which not only is going to create havoc on our suburb with an influx of resident numbers but also congestion traffic wise .

    Council is not taking into consideration the destruction of local culture , feel and safety of current residents and is only interested in increasing housing numbers for its own revenue generation .

    At current rate of redevelopment it won’t be long before kew is forever changed and transformed into a a suburb of similar feel to Richmond or collingwood ,

    It’s disgusting what the council is allowing to happen to a beautiful suburb .

    The trees in kew seem to have more favour and protection then residents .

    With an influx of families coming in and living in small apartments how long before we start to see groups of youth hanging around our street in gang styles due to lack of residential own backyards or home space to hang in.
    How long before kew starts having these gang issues that we see elsewhere ?

    This push for creating higher density living will destroy the very look and feel of this beautiful suburb and it will be all done in such a short period !

    The council should stop focusing on small residential home developments and focus blocking these high density developments and developments such as this one which will change the face of kew .

    Driving down or walking down high street is starting to feel like inner city as opposed to a leafy quite sunburn.

    Delivered to local councillor Felicity Sinfield. They are yet to respond.

    Residents need to be aware a good deal of the recent apartment blocks built were NOT approved by the council. I have spent many years fighting for the areas heritage to be preserved and the council has fought many inappropriate development proposals.
    Developers simply head off to VCAT where they have an 80%+ chance of getting their way. VCAT is pro developer and has no interest or regard for heritage. The problem here isn’t the council - write to VCAT.

    I object the proposed development as I believe that it will be inappropriate to fit another dwelling into this tiny and narrow land.
