    This is a clear overdevelopment for one house block sized parcel of land.
    We object strenuously to this.
    More than 3 houses is outrageous and more than two stories with that many on a block is also outrageous.

  2. Peter Lenartas commented

    Another example of Glen Eira town planner's indifference to established and long term community amenity considerations.
    Allowing another obtrusive and over-shadowing development in this location further degrades our amenity and imposes greater street traffic dangers upon our community.
    This property development was applied for around two years ago which appears to be the accepted strategy of minimising prospects of neighbouring rate payer objections by ambush!
    It is now obvious that higher rate paying shire density is the primary ambition of the City of Glen Eira administrators.

    One block, one house, one family. To be replaced by 5 houses of 3 storeys each in its place - what an abomination! Five 3-storey homes on a block of 725 sq mts - utter madness!

    Another example of the Glen Eira Council & Town Planner totally ignoring the the wishes of the rate payers, while pandering to the wishes of developers, or more apropos over-developers.

    I vigorously object to this over development - it is not in keeping with the streetscape, it will lead to greater carbon emissions, increased traffic, extra load on amenities (such as schools given it is in the McKinnon School Zone etc). In light of the flat population growth, there is no justification for this development. Plus given fewer & fewer people will be commuting to the CBD to work ( the pandemic forced many companies to introduce new work from home policies) - there is no longer as strong a need to be within close proximity of the CBD.

    I totally agree with you Mary
    Just the developer grabbing as much money as he can from the block
    Council definitely ignoring the the effects that it will have on the street and the local area and community as do the developers
    It’s all about the $ Council filling the coffers developers filling their wallets, It’s long overdue, get rid of the town planners as they are not doing their job.

    The State Government Strategy "Living Melbourne" - to which Glen Eira Council has committed to - (refer April 30th 2019 Council Meeting Agenda and minutes, and 5th June signing by Mayor and CEO) - committed the City of Glen Eira to 24% Urban Forest Coverage by 2030. And, State Government PPN 84 requires 25% garden area for 400 - 500 square metres, 30% garden area for 500 to 650 square metres and 35% above 650 square metres. Surfaces are not included in the garden area calculation are the driveway providing vehicle access, uncovered car parking, garages and carports and any area that has a dimension of less than 1 metre. The big question is whether the proposed Plans comply with State Government Planning Practice Notes.

    I agree with the spirit of the comments by Peter Lenartas......same thing has happened in Bevis Street, Agnes Street and Malane Street, Bentleigh East.

    Council needs to adhere to Local Government Act 2020, Page 24

    “8 Role of Council. ((i). The role of Council is to provide good governance in its municipal district for the benefit and well being of the municipal community.”

    .......This was quoted on the Agenda for the Council Meeting of December 15, 2020.
