    One house to be replaced with 12 triple storey townhouses - total loss of privacy for neighbours, where will all the cars park, so close to the Boronia Road / Elliott Avenue intersections plus the medical clinic, yet another nail in the coffin of local character. How is this not high density?

    12 triple apartments on Albert Ave? Traffic is already a nightmare. How many visitor car parks, where do visitors park, how many car spaces per apartment, where do the occupants of 12 triple apartments park? Triple apartments, I would hate to be a neighbour with triple apartments next door. I suspect next door will eventually become 12 triple apartments also

    This development is not suitable for the area. Triple storey appartments are not in character with the neighbourhood and will adversely impact neighbours. Twelve appartments should require 24 resident car parks plus visitors parks.

    Well done knox council, another nail in the coffin of a once great spacious area. No way can 12 TRIPLE level townhouses exist on that block without ruining privacy, traffic flow and noise levels. I hope the local community can get these plans altered. Even halving it would still be too big.

  5. Janelle Sharkey commented

    Triple story dwellings with a reduction in visitor car spaces sounds like a backwards step for the area. I would be extremely distressed if this development was happening next door to me. It seems excessive and very out of character for the area. I do hope this is opposed by Knox Council. Thank you.

    How is this actually legal? It seems to go against all the design guidelines of 2 storeys and 9m max heights? I guess someone has conveniently changed this or it is being ignored?

    Why does Knox council bother publishing "planning schemes" that talk of "a treed city", heritage, character, biodiversity and "support smaller scale dwelling that cater for older people". Why would an older, retired by a 3 storey unit full of stairs?

    Knox council needs to rename the "Planning scheme" to "get rich quick scheme".

    Totally agree with the comments re height. Two storey is obviously not an issue now from the Council point of view and three storey is the way to go. Just look at the three storey units being built on Hastings at present. The overwhelming visual bulk of these buildings, the resultant lack of any significant trees being able to be planted and the change from a single storey single house on a large often treed block is enormous. This links to Council plans for 10 storey around the Dorset / Boronia roads intersection. Why are our Councillors not speaking up?

    This development is not suitable for the area. Triple storey appartments are not in character with the neighbourhood and will adversely impact neighbours. Twelve appartments should require 24 resident car parks plus visitors parks. Albert Ave is already at Standstill during peak.
