    Like many houses in the Bentleigh area, if not all, have a restrictive covenant requiring that only brick dwellings can be constructed. These covenants were conceived in the 1950's when weatherboard was seen as the cheap and nasty option. With the subdivisions taking place today that mean a double storey house is being built, a two storey brick house can be very expensive and unnecessary with modern building materials, such as hebel, a manufactured masonry material.
    I cannot understand why the local government has not lobbied the state planning authority to override this outdated and now unnecessary restriction, all it does it add anxiety and unwanted costs to the planning process, which is complicated enough and expensive enough already..

    4 storey Stick apartment houses with timber floors will be a slum in 30 years so why should this covenant for brick be removed?

    If you note my comment, it was not about four storey apartments, it referred to double storey townhouses, which to my way of thinking is a sensible way to create more housing, we can't continue to spread, so we have to have more population density. The restrictive covenant has effectively been pushed aside, if you look at the developments taking place in the area, both two and multi storey, so it seems that the covenant is an a relic from a past era, technology had overtaken it and it should be gotten rid of. As for the new apartments that are going up, I fail to see how they will be slums in the near future at the prices they are going for they are a significant investment in an upwardly mobile suburb.
