    More soulless, poorly placed and overly tall units with empty shopfronts along Lygon Street, just what we need. God forbid we maintain any sense of the existing street front or as is the case here, we maintain an existing and functional piece of housing. I understand everyone wants to turn old factories and the like into development cash cows, but why must we destroy existing housing in the area, especially when it's part of the existing character of the suburb? Combined with the neighbouring property, I would have thought that these sort of buildings should be maintained, not consistently bulldozed.

    The proposed landscape does not in any way fit into the current landscape of the street surrounding it. You've allowed other similarly out of place developments in the area recently but a terrible precedent does not mean that we should then allow it to re-occur. I find it strange that we have no heritage overlays whatsoever in this area, I have no doubt that we'll look back in not many years and wonder why there was no care given at all to the overall appearance of our suburb. Of course this is a repeating pattern and also supported by some terrible state government planning so I shouldn't be surprised I suppose. Just annoyed.
