    Every large development requests a reduction in parking requirements. The inner suburbs are being destroyed by greed on the part of developers and the disregard of legitimate concerns by councils. Parking problems already abound, the population density of the inner suburbs is becoming too large for scarce resources such as open space, and the bulk and mass of these developments are destroying the 'human scale' of the suburbs.,

    REDUCTION IN SIZE AND NO REDUCTION IN PARKING SHOULD OCCUR.

    I thoroughly agree with L. Baxter's comments about the destruction of the inner (and not only the inner) suburbs being destroyed by developers. Every developer's application calls for reduction in car parking spaces. Contrary to this, developers should be made to provide extra car parking for visitors to the oversize complexes they build. We face the same problem visiting family in Brunswick where in the space of 4 years it has gone from being easy to a find car park when visiting, to impossible.

    Overlooking and overshadowing is also a major factor in the ruination of the once pleasant ambience of all residential suburbs, not to mention the loss of gardens and trees which are essential to the environmental health of the city.

    I agree with the demand for reduction in size and no reduction in car parking.

    Whilst this is a warehouse space being converted, there should be a limit to the height and number of apartments permitted per block. Already there is an 8 storey development going in at 272 and on the other side of the street a 6 storey development. The congestion in this area is already causing danger to the pedestrians, cyclists and road users.

    Parking should not be restricted, and the shadowing of the area is becoming an issue also. 1 and 2 bedroom apartments do not lead to long term residents. The suburbs loses on building a culture based around community involvement.

    I am not opposed to development, but would like it to contribute to the community as opposed to destroying it.
