    Four storeys would not only look inappropriate but on this busy stretch with so much traffic out of the 7/11 and hundreds of students trying to cross the road it's not the place to be putting residential apartments that are too high and look out of place

    This development is inappropriate at this location. It is too close to the roundabout where hundreds of children and others cross daily to 3 local schools and to a new childcare cerntre. The 7-11 on the corner has its own traffic issues so adding to that would create a dangerous situation. Carparking provided must be suitable for the amount of bedrooms proposed per dwelling with NO request for exceptions to break the rules to reduce carpark numbers - as is so commonly accepted by council with all these developments. The child care centre which opened recently has car parking issues already and we struggle to turn out of Preston st at all times of the day due to cars parked right on the corners obscuring views of oncoming cars and children crossing.
    In addition, this end of Mckinnon and East Bentleigh is a quiet , family oriented neighbourhood where 1 or 2 dwellings on a property is acceptable. However, this mass type of building is inappropriate and offensive to residents who choose to live away from inner Melbourne and it's high rises.
    We do not need them here. And I haven't even mentioned the strain on existing infrastructure needed to support the masses...and a bus that comes twice an hour only (mostly).

    This proposed building is adding on yet more traffic chaos to an area that is struggling to cope. This area is busy with school drop off and pick up and with people accessing the 7 eleven. We are starting to drive alternate routes to avoid this busy area, and can not imagine what a four storey building would do to traffic flow. This would be yet another eye sore on the community, destroying the small shopping strips. The shops are not being filled ( see Tucker Road shops near Patterson Rd) and after apartments are built, the shops are being left empty.

    I live in Shanahan Crescent which curves behind this little cluster of shops. It was once a serene residential street with traffic stress only during school drop off and pick up times. Properties are being subdivided to accommodate increasing population, maybe a necessary change, but building 5 residences on one block is going too far. It will tower over the landscape and I suspect will be the wedge that allows future multistorey developments here. It looks like way of getting a 4-storey residential complex here under the excuse that they are above a shop.
    It will add to the traffic and parking difficulties. So they will have parking will they? I believe they will park on the already cluttered streets as an easy access option.
    I object to a four storey building here under any pretext. Please keep the personality of this area with a limit of 2 storeys. Four storey buildings should be limited to designated areas such as near the Centre Road shops and near railway stations.
