    Surely this is a joke... The poor people who will be crammed into these matchboxes. Imagine 12 more cars being associated with what was once a one family home block. If rented out imagine all the hard rubbish dumping to come on that sad nature strip.

  2. Alicia lepp commented

    This is again another example of over crowding! Way too many buildings on that one block. Even with 2 carports per unit the street will be extremely busy and over crowded. Maximum 3 per block is over sufficient, insufficient parks and greenland in that area as it is.

  3. Danielle Harvey commented

    I completely agree with the other comments that this is overcrowding. Not what this area should be looking like.

    This level of development is extreme. 6 houses on one block is a large number of people and cars to accommodate.
    I am particularly concerned at the deterioration in community character with such rapid large scale development.
    In this case 6 buildings would create heavy, light blocking landscape. There is limited capacity for soft landscapes for planting of trees, let alone any grass.
    The amenity for neighbours and the local community will be unreasonably impacted.
    I am concerned that heavy development in the area to date sets a precedent for ongoing over development. At what point does consideration for balance in retaining some of the history whilst also progressing and modernizing? Lately there appears to be limited balance and instead the trend seems to be towards going bigger and bigger in terms of building. I would personally prefer consideration for lower density development and more thought into retaining some natural landscape within our urban environment.
