    Really, 10 stories....this needs to be nipped in the bud.
    I want a double story exemption on my house and MORELAND council advised 6m maximum height
    Why would Moreland council event consider such a multi story dwelling...CLEARLY DOUBLE STANDARDS

  2. Mark Jenkinson commented

    Where are mandatory height restrictions when you need them?
    Obviously the developer will play the game and get 8 levels through vcat, helping creating the dark and overcrowded wind tunnel that is becoming a feature of our suburb.
    Why is Moreland Council impotent on protecting it's urban landscape?

    10 stories, really way too high for this location - sunrise won’t reach 2 blocks west of Lygon for hours in winter. Is MCC creating a canyon out of Lygon by allowing this development- this bit of strip shopping hasn’t taken of in the 35 years I’ve lived here so good luck for this unwanted proposal- a wind tunnel and exacerbated parking problems is all that can be expected

  4. Ingrid Mohr commented

    10 stories is way too high and will block sunlight from neighbouring residential houses.
    A maximum of 2 or 3 stories should be imposed next to other residential homes. These types of developments are severely devaluing the vibrant brunswick neighbourhood.

    Way to high. Will block all the nature afternoon sun and close in the street. Lygon st is such an iconic Melbourne street scape - need to keep some of it charm and not create a concrete jungle void of sunlight.

    Way too much development in Lygon St. There won't be enough parking for shoppers.

    10 stories must surely be considered to high. Very unfair to overshadow the surrounding properties by so much. Moreland city is losing much of its appeal.

  9. IRENE AND ALAN BENNETTS commented

    A 10 storey building particularly in that location is much too high. This will be an absolute disaster in terms of parking and accessability. It will also creatre considerable lighting issues to all other surrounding properties and make us lose the unique character we have at this end of Lygon Street. There are height limits and we believe upon examination this 10 storey exceeds the height limits for this end of Lygon Street.

  10. Karlea Tabone commented

    10 stories is too high for this area on Lygon street! It will create darkness and shadowing on surrounding buildings. Especially during the winter months. It will also be far too busy with traffic and car parking. Please re consider the height of this proposed building.
