    The face/entrance to this property sits on the apex of the King St bridge turning onto Adelphi Tce. As it is this corner gets congested with traffic at all times of the day. Adding the entering & exiting of residents for 46 apartments and 17 townhouses would see major obstruction.
    The parking onsite would need to be sufficient as the road parking on Adelphi Tce is already a struggle during the week and near on impossible on the weekend.
    The fence line runs along side existing houses and townhouses, so I would like to know if the height of the buildings would impede current privacy.

    This area is zoned 5 storeys. The proposed development is 7 storeys. Zonings and Development Plans should be rules, and not guidelines which can be overturned by planning authorities and/or the court.
    This proposed development is also close to the Michael Herbert Bridge (formerly the King Street Bridge) and entry/exit from a development of this size is going to create dangerous traffic conditions along Adelphi Terrace.

    As a regular visitor staying in MacFarlane Street, I have experienced the severe traffic congestion that already exists in Todd Street. This additional development will place further pressure on the already stretched infrastructures in the area.

    I have lived in Glenelg since 1977 and I’ve seen much development during these 40+ year. This is the first time I’ve felt compelled to object but I feel this area around the bridge across the Patawolonga is already very congested. This high density of housing causes parking problems for residents and their visitors and the intersection at the bridge is already congested causing delays when travelling this route. I also wonder if current infrastructure is capable of coping especially with water run off. I hope the City of Holdfast Bay will listen to ratepayers concerns about this proposed development. Kind regards, Donna Grinham.

    I lived in St AnnesTerrace, Glenelg North for 24 years and now live in MacFarlane Street. This proposed development will create severe traffic conditions on St Anne's Terrace, Todd Street, MacFarlane Street and Adelphi Terrace and is not in the best interest of the area, particularly in view of the development that has already been approved at 22-23 Adelphi Terrace.

    This area is zoned 5 storeys. The State Government Planning Commission (SCAP) recently refused a planning application (for 22 Adelphi Terrace), which was submitted as 6.5 storeys. The development was subsequently amended and has been approved at the Development Plan height limit of 19.5m or 5 storeys. This new Development at 19 Adelphi Terrace should be subject to the same planning restrictions.
    Issues with Traffic congestion, infrastructure and parking will be further exacerbated by a development of this magnitude and impacts should be seriously considered in any submissions regarding this proposed development.
    There is no off-street parking in that area on Adelphi as it is close to the King St bridge, so further development (in addition to the approved redevelopment at 22 Adelphi Tce. which had identified Patawilya Reserve on the MacFarlane St for its parking overflow, reducing access to the park for those wanting to use the area for recreation) would force more traffic into the already congested surrounding streets. Todd Street is extremely narrow and this traffic bottleneck will be unable to accept further traffic movements or parking.
    We hope that the Holdfast Bay Council consider carefully what this is going to do to the area, and listen to their rate payers.

    What is the point in having rules and height restrictions when they are not adhered to.
    If approved this development will exacerbate traffic and parking problems already being experienced in and around the development site.
    Planning Officers need to consider safety issues before approving any further developments in the vicinity of the King Street Bridge. Further, if road alterations do become necessary as a result of developments, the costs of same should be borne by the developers.

    I am a resident of Tod Street, Glenelg North and I have just been made aware of the approved development of 22-23 Adelphi Terrace, Glenelg North, a 6 story, 40 apartment building and a 46 apartment, 7 story building for 19-20 Adelphi Terrace which is in the approval stage. These properties are near the King Street Bridge and will create severe traffic conditions as well as increasing traffic in the area.

    Not being residents of Tod Street yourself, you may not understand the already existing congestion issues and number of side swiped cars and smashed side mirrors. There is only enough room during the day for traffic to pass single file with drivers having to navigate, negotiate and usher other drivers. Also a problem is that a lot of overflow from peak hour traffic negotiates is way off Tapleys Hill Road and down Anderson Ave and onto Adelphi. The same can be said of Military road, making the area horrible at these times.

    By allowing these developments, you are encouraging more of this and turning what is a beautiful neighbourhood into a ghetto.

    I, and my neighbours are heavily opposed to these large developments. We aren’t opposed to progressive moves, and 2-3 storey apartments a maybe. But 6-7 story buildings which overlook family homes is an invasion, depreciates the value of our homes and creates danger to our children and the elderly who live in Tod Street and frequent the nearby play space on foot. You are creating congestion to our beautiful open spaces. This is a very questionable move to say the least. Our rates are high and our interests are not being protected. People have paid good money for their homes and quiet residential streets and are devastated by this. There is barely enough room for current residents to navigate on street parking pre-development let alone battling new residents and their visitors. The newly opened coffee shop on Tapleys Hill Road, Coffee Time is already cause for considerable congestion in Macfarlane Street and Tod Street. Please reconsider what you are doing or at least spend a full day negotiating the streets and taking your children to the park.

    I agree with progress but it should be done in accordance with zoning regulations. The proposed development is 7 storeys high; however, the area is zoned for 5 storeys. I believe this would produce privacy issues to surrounding properties

    Adelphi Terrace at the Junction of the bridge is currently a high traffic area, Tod St is very narrow. A large development would affect the flow of traffic and lead to traffic congestion. Please reconsider this development approval

    In general development in the area is a good thing. However remember that overcrowding of apartment buildings devalues property values.
    It is indeed already very busy at that location. How is this a benefit to this location and rate payers? How much parking has been allocated to this development?
    Yes development will continue, however keep in mind, that less is more in long term. Over density without adequate parking is a problem. Road congestion is also an issue.
    Perhaps council can reconsider access issues to this side of the bridge for resident only up to Anderson avenue.
    Make it private access only to stop the traffic going through.

  12. Paula Read commented

    Scott Salisbury objected to the 12 storey development on the Haven Motel site on Adelphi Terrace. He lives across the Patawlonga from that development site and it would have little affect upon him.
    He is now proposing a 7storey development further down Adelphi Terrace.
    It obviously only matters if it is not near your home and you are not involved in the development.

  13. Lawrence Cornfield commented

    We stay opposite the Patawilya Reserve on the corner of Tod and MacFarlane streets.
    We are not looking forward to these developments and cannot see how they are going to benefit us and the area in any way. The only benefit to building these apartments appears to be to the council rate coffers. The flats are far too high and dense for the neighbourhood, anyone can see that. You are also talking of hundreds of extra vehicles in an area that is already congested and with limited access. The council should stand up for the rights and privacy of their local ratepayers, not stand by idly and allow inappropriate developments to get pushed through.
