    Please no, it will destroy the character , ambience and serenity of this tiny court. Please Council, say no to these developers and preserve the beauty and desirability of our leafy Boroondara.

    How can the onslaught of appartment developments be stopped. I find the daily news of more developments depressing. Many it's time to Chang the council and somehow get rid of VCAT

    Delivered to local councillor Jack Wegman. They are yet to respond.

    We need to make a submission to council, VCAT and state government to allocate more farmland for housing estates in areas around 50km from the CBD to avoid these problems. Careful planning is also required to ensure extensive freeways are put in place and more shopping malls complement these estates.
    It's our choice - Melbourne will get bigger whether we like it or not. The choice we have is Los Angeles big or New York big.
    Ever noticed the amazing new cafes opening in Booroondara? The customers come from a denser and more culturally diverse and dynamic community.
    It's not 1950 anymore...

    Balwyn and the City of Boroondara are one of the wealthiest and affluent areas of Victoria.

    This properties location is being exploited by the developer to overload it with dwellings to gain as much possible profits for themselves. There is no consideration for the suburb, the neighbours, the character of the area, the property values of the area and social status of the area.

    Incorporating 8 townhouses amongst multi-million dollar mansions degrades the area beyond measure.

    It greatly affects the property values of the surrounding homes by greatly reducing their value due to being adjacent to so many townhouses with poor aesthetic design and increasingly added traffic.

    Balwyn is an area that needs to be protected from over developments like this and retain the single dwellings and large properties.

    Leave the subdivisions and apartment developments for Manningham, Stonninghton and Whitehorse and retain and increase the affluential reputation of Boroondara, keeping and increasing property values of those in the area.

    I agree with all that Alexander has said. We must protect the amenity of Boroondara for which we have paid a premium when we bought our properties. We need to keep our canopy trees and other vegetation, our birds and our peaceful, beautiful streets.
    In addition, our main roads and car parking in shopping centres are already becoming very congested. A cul-de-sac such as Carronshore Close has limited on street parking which could not accomodate the increase in demand for street parking that would be the consequence of this proposed 7 dwelling development.
    Please, Boroondara Council, preserve our life style and amenity by saying NO to these greedy developers.
