    As neighbours in the street, we have no right of objection to this application as it has been made as a Vic Smart application.

    This is so unfair because residents in Myrtle Grove are extremely concerned about the beautiful Norfolk Island Pine tree at the front of the property, which you can view in google maps.

    What will be its fate when the two storey McMansion goes in?

    We are losing so many beautiful trees of signifance from the local area and this is contributing to global warming and our neighbourhood is turning into a hot concrete jungle.

    We urge Darebin to protect this tree of significance before the tree removalists arrive.

    It is not clear to me what this application is for. Is it to demolish the existing house or is it to subdivide the property and build another dwelling behind it. I too am concerned about the loss of trees and green space in both the Darebin and Moreland councils.

    Update on tree of significance - Norfolk Island Pine tree

    We are hoping that this beautiful 35 year old tree of significance gets to live out its natural life span and continue to provide shelter for local wildlife and help keep the street cool and green.

    Thank you Darebin Council for your efforts so far.

    A big thank you to planning alerts and Open Australia. Without the alert, we would never known about this application until the bulldozers rocked up.

    Here are some of the recommendations I have made to Darebin Council:

    1. Policy/ law change, requiring site inspection by Darebin council to check for trees of significance on property before planning approval for Vic Smart planning applications.

    2. Owners/ planning permit company also required to sign a stat dec declaring no trees of significance on property or declaring that trees of significant are noted and drawn on plans and docs.

    3. Public notice should be required for all Vic Smart applications to inform neighbourhood so that residents can raise concerns about potential destruction of trees of significance in the redevelopment process.

    4. Communication strategy raising awareness of Darebin tree policy- to residents as well as tree lopping companies, arborists and soil testing companies etc.
