    Too big for this corner ! Separation x Grange is already an overtaxed residential intersection and feels dangerous with people gunning through the lights at speed. Just because the developers can doesn't mean that they should.

    (1) Right on this busy intersection, it will be too dangerous for occupants to back their cars out onto the street. Solution: a circular driveway???
    (2) Alphington is gradually losing most of its trees through overdevelopment. Trees are important for air quality, peace and beauty. Our suburb is already deteriorating rapidy. (I used to enjoy the blossoming fruit trees on this particular block in springtime!) Suggest a smaller development.

    This will go ahead, albeit with some insignificant reduction. Why? Because Council will derive rates x 4 properties compared to previous rates x 1. Imagine when they're built, 12 new residents, no doubt all with cars that won't be catered for on site, will park on tight Separation St and outside neighbouring properties. Then there's the overshadowing, the eyesore to neighbours, loss of privacy, increase in noise, the list goes on. Will they be liveable? No. Will they make a developer and Council wealthier? Yes. And that's all that matters!

    100 PERCENT CORRECT ROSS

    Yes you are all right. And big council wards mean 'local' councillors aren't really connected to their residents. Never mind the contradiction in terms of climate policies: heating up the neighbourhood. How to counter this effectively? Happy to contribute to a strategy.

    Off-street parking will need to be catered for. Loss of trees and biodiversity without reasonable residence to outdoor space requirements. These dwellings will be subject to high air pollution and noise at a very busy intersection - will require adequate air filtration systems as well as noise controls (fences / double glazing etc).
