    I don't think this application should be approved as it sets a precedent for three storey development in an area that consists mostly of single storey dwellings. There are a few double storey buildings. There should be no reduction in car parking in this area.

    I agree with Cherry. Three stories is too much in this area; two should be sufficient. What impact would such a building have on the neighbours (eg overshadowing) and the area generally (If reduced parking on-site, will visitors add to demand for street parking)?
    Further, how about space reserved for a tree or two rather than all the plot taken up by the building? Otherwise we end up with ever decreasing green space.

    In accord with previous comments, this 3 storey proposal has no place in this area. In Nth Coburg we are already being visually assaulted with large multi storey development. The area around O’Hea Street needs to retain its height (no more than 2 storey), many homes still in their period style. The recent redesign of the street with the bicycle track and planting has been highly successful, but inappropriate proposals such as this are out of place. There is also a huge parking problem around Stock Street and Main Street already, and many of these homes have no off street parking and have to compete with business patrons at a very busy intersection.

    In accordance with our current landsape in O'hea St we do not want to set a precedent that a 3 stories building is acceptable in our residential area. This development should not be approved.
    Also we have a massive traffic issue at the moment in our street, with limited parking. Council should not approve any development without any onsite carpark attached in our street.
