    The following sets out our grounds and concerns for opposing the proposed development in its current form.
    1. The proposed building height does not reflect the surrounding building heights and is not in line with current limits for shopping area precincts.
    2. The setback combined with the proposed building height creates more negative issues. The proposed building setback in our view is not acceptable and will produce crowding in the street affecting the residential interface by overlooking adjacent private properties.
    3. Traffic and pedestrian safety issues. In our view the proposed development will intensify the traffic movement in the street.
    4. The proposed development will intensify the already high traffic congestion and parking in the area.
    5. Along with increased traffic, service vehicles and pedestrian activity comes increased noise and urban disturbance.
    6. The proposed developmentā€™s visual bulk also doesn't sit well or fit in with the surrounding heritage environment. The bulk of the proposed building taking into consideration the increased height and setbacks can only infringe upon the privacy of the existing surrounding buildings, in fact there will be very invasive overlooking.
    We ask that the concerns as outlined above be given fair and due consideration during the assessment process of this application.

    I have received notice from Boroondara Council of this proposed development. I own an investment property in this street. The proposal currently requests an 8 storey building which is not in proportion to the other buildings in the street and will be overpowering and produce shade on the opposite side of the road.
    72 dwellings is quite dense and will increase the road and foot traffic in Queens Ave which is a very small street. I am most concerned about the proposal to reduce the car parking requirements and the request to waiver loading and unloading facilities for the shops. This will have a very detrimental effect on the road which is small and not suited to heavy traffic. Parking is already difficult in the area. I do not support these requests and feel it will have a negative effect on the environment and a negative effect on the amenity of my property.
