    This large development of 5 storeys directly to the north of the lovely park — does the application respect overshadowing requirements.? Does the Norfolk Avenue address respect neighbourhood character and heritage aspects of the street and area? Elizabeth

    Five (5) storey building is ridiculously high in Norfolk Avenue. With so many dwellings in this location, the narrow street with be overwhelmed with roadside parking; reduction in the standard car parking requirement for residents, visitors and retail premises is not acceptable at all. If there is retail on the premises, loading bay must be the standard requirement as delivery van and truck will block the road for access by users.

    A five (05) story development that overshadows the highly valued Surrey Gardens is an excessive and inappropriate over-development of a site abutting a predominantly two (02) story residential area. The proposed development is not consistent with the Design and Development Overlay Schedule 17 (DDO17), applicable to this allotment which restricts development to a maximum overall building height of 11 metres (Table 1, Area 3, Boroondara Planning Scheme 43.02 pg 593). The proposed infrastructure height does not enhance the established streetscape, it will result in significant overshadowing of the adjacent park to the south, adversely impact the established gardens and the communities ability to enjoy recreation activities in the sun-filled areas of the park. In addition to the detrimental community health and wellbeing and environmental impacts, the proposed request for reduced car parking requirements and removal of loading zone are not supported. Local residents have already experienced the congestion attributable to the increase in parking and traffic resultant from insufficient parking allowances at the development on the Canterbury Road corner with Norfolk. In summary this application is not in accordance with the Boroondara Planning Scheme and should not be approved.
