    Hi,

    I object to this proposal on the basis of better alternate use. The area used to currently carry the existing signage is used as an access point by many to Tasker Park. It is poorly maintained and is a trip hazzard with a lack of acceptable footpaths. The local community deserves better.
    Residents are still waiting for a footbridge that was promised under the new Canterbury precint plan that would allow foot traffic to avoid Canterbury road to walk to the train station through Tasker Park. Access to this footbrige (when rather than if it gets buitt I hope) requires as much access points as possible. One of those access points will be through this narrow corridor. This signage makes it permatently more difficult for the Council to achieve its vision for the Canterbuy Precinct.

    Please leave this area alone now. Canterbury Council has allowed developers to do enough damage here without adding garish neon signs to the existing urban uglification.

    I agree with Laura. I am a local who regularly walks in the area and uses the paths along the river which has been impinged upon so badly by overdevelopment. What we don't need is more light pollution and commercialisation of an area where people want to relax and get closer to nature. Council has done a great job of contributing to rehabilitating the river, please don't undo your good work.

    The signage on the walk way to Tasker park next to the bridge has nothing to do with this signage that is on the side of the building that the CC is for
    Both signage sites are approved by council many many moons ago
    Do your homework before you make comments
    The comments about signage is ridiculous as that is messages just like your tv screen
    But instead of complaining about overdevelopment in the area you make complaints about issues that are less significant
    Yes build a pathway along the river next to the sign so people walk with safety
    That’s what you should asking council not questioning or commenting about signage that is part of our lives !

    Peter katholos - this is not the venue to be terse (and rude) with people who are just sick of over development in their area and loss of green space.

  6. peter katholos commented

    Kate Daley - how are am I rude ? Not at all ! I’m pointing the facts , and the facts are build a pathway along that area so people can walk safely that I agree
    The pylon sign does not interior with this There is enough space to build a path ! Both signage sites are existing and approved And they don’t affect community nothing like the overdevelopment that’s has caused traffic congestion capacity of our hospital overcrowded schools and pressure on our services sewerage and electricity services

    Hi, I have no problems with this sign on the side of the building. In fact I appreciate the development along Canterbury road that otherwise would not have transformed a dull, sad and tired area.

    The suburb Canterbury has to be the worst town planning ever designed by council and the state government. When I drive past Canterbury all I see is empty new build shops with For Lease and For Sale signs. Canterbury Woolworths is struggling to get foot traffic, and the shops at the plaza are struggling to maintain up float. In my option adding a digital illuminated advertising sign along the side boundary (west) of Mytilenian House would be the cherry on the top on how Local and state town planning is fueled by the need to please the developer. Furthermore Canterbury is the example of poor Local Government Leadership, poor representation of constituents in the LGA, failure in delivering sustainable and progressive town planning, poor beautification in the suburb and lastly poor engagement of residents showing no pride in their suburbs. In fact, residents opt to take up on the state governments uplift in zoning to cash in their house investment.
