    This area has been flooded with approvals for multi storey developments without consideration for the existing parking or transport needs. There is an excess of unleased retail properties, and the area is struggling for parking. Do not reduce the parking requirements for this building. Every development is doing this putting pressure on the existing residents and creating a dangerous stretch of road between Glenlyon and Victoria streets.

    Ther is an even greater imperative that the the carpark ratio be mantained as per the planning requirements. Even if the theory is that with less carparks this will encourage people to live without a car, this view is shortsighted. Spaces are still required to store bicycles (serious riders have more than one) and other modes of transport and are useful as visitor carparks where people drive in to visit but there is no space on the roads. The lack of loading zone is also a problem given the amount of traffic on the road which struggles with bikes, cars and trams.

    I would like to object to yet another oversize development in Lygon Street East Brunswick, with the normal developer requirement of a reduction in car parking.

    This application however has yet another selfish developer requirement of waiving loading and unloading requirements.

    Neither of these ought to be granted as both will increase the already hugely overcrowded and congested traffic in this area. To waive loading and unloading requirements when there is commercial shopping included in the development which will necessitate both these activities on a regular basis, is simply ridiculous.

    Visiting our children who live in this area has become impossible with the huge recent increase in cars parking in the area due to massive development all with reduced car parking provisions.
