    No reduction to anything and no waivers of anything. In the long term, both the residents, retail tenants and community at large will be grateful that short-term savings/profit maximisation were sacrificed for the current needs if not the longer term needs.

    Existing regulations are there to protect the amenity for current and future users. Please do not accept or negotiate these proposals which has the appearance of an ambit claim.

    Delivered to local councillor Coral Ross. They are yet to respond.

    Obviously there is a push for medium/high density development in areas that can support public transport linkages. Glenferrie Road obviously does this - but it shouldn't be done at the expense of all other factors. People will still own cars, even if they don't drive them to work, and if the purpose is to encourage people to visit the area, visitor / patron parking is essential. The car park ratio cannot be reduced purely so the development margin can increase - we all know basement parking is expensive and the developer clearly doesn't want to have to excavate further or lose an above ground level for parking. Council needs to put the needs of residents, traders and patrons, above the developers profit margin.

    Secondly, if the loading dock is going to be scrapped, where do supplies, deliveries, etc come from? Glenferrie Road itself, or the closest side street? Where do the numerous bins get stored and collected from? This is a ridiculous request and should not even be a consideration.

    Ditto Nicole Ward. Well said and thought through. As residents we know, understand and accept development but pure greed at the expense of common sense NO. This amendment must be refused at every level. Here's hoping it does not end up at VCAT! I have faith in our councillors and planning department to defend residents and our precious surrounds.

    I object this development based on following comments,

    As the proposal mentioned 4~5 building levels and 29 dwellings, it means about 6 units to 8 units each floor. For a such small size of land, I am wondering how the each dwelling accesses daylight penetration, fresh air and external view to achieve the well-beings of residents?

    The development is on the main street, Glenferrie Road, surrounding by heavy traffic and restaurants. I got questions about how the development is going to prevent its residents from the traffic noise, restaurant noise and restaurant smoke pollution.

    About the rubbish bins, how can the council or a private company collects dwellings waste from the site?

    About increase local traffic by the development, the local traffic is already over crowded, a huge amount of local people, especial school kids walking passing in front of the site, it will be a safety concern about when up to 29 residents cars drive-in and drive-out traffic frequently on Glenferrie Rd.
