    Such extensive subdivision in what is considered the Golden Mile of Mount Eliza completely goes against the peace and privacy of this area. It encourages high density living, noise and excessive activity, diminished vegetation and trees for local wildlife (this plot has already removed extensive vegetation), and increased local pollution. It is not what the area is known for or desired to be. There is no need for such high density building in this area.

    I would like to 2nd Eleanor's comments. We recently bought into the area and since then have seen numerous subdivision applications to the council, indeed 2 direct neighbours to our own property have recently applied. If we had known the character of the Daveys Bay Rd area was going to be eroded so much we would have been far less likely to have purchased.

    The historic site at 109 Old Mornington Road was quickly cleared and now there has been no activity for months. It's as if the developer wanted to prevent any intervention from the council or residents. In this current economic climate the best we can now hope for is that the site lays dormant and nature gives us some green space.

    Agree with Eleanor, completely. This area is renowned for its tranquillity and large leafy blocks, because of this it has manageable/low traffic volumes. A development of this nature would be the first of its kind and subtract from the many reasons while people pay a premium to live in this amazing area. It would also have a considerably negative effect on traffic volumes, many of the roads in the surrounding streets don't allow for much in the way of off-street parking, this development would bring more vehicles into the area and clog up the streets. The secondary traffic impact would be on the already struggling village car parking situation, which is a problem in its current state. Mount Eliza earnt much of its enviable reputation based on the streets surrounding development, this would the beginning of its un-doing I'm sure.

    Yes definately agree with Eleanors comments.
    I was wondering when this large piece of paradise was going to sell to hungry developers and knew it would likely be carved up for financial gains and extra rates for council. I presume this block is now owned by 'overseas interests' in view to build more high density the peninsula.
    I live in the area and have seen several applications in Mt Eliza for subdivisions of well under 3000 sq metre blocks. Isnt there supposed to be a limitation on the size of subdivision in this area? As Eleanor points out - high density living is not suited in this area or any part of Mt Eliza for that matter..
    The traffic impact alone would be a problem - this road is already busy particularly with Toorak College nearby it is already chaotic during school hours. This is a special area of Mt Eliza. Its exactly why we want to live here. There are already too many subdivisions with high density living shot up all over the peninsula which has been slowly destroying a special part of Victoria.

    Lets hope common sense will prevail and not dollar signs - and see only a few properties built on this lovely estate.
