  1. In Edithvale VIC on “Construct one double-storey...” at 54 Fraser Avenue, Edithvale, VIC:

    Clare McPhee commented

    Council advocates that the two storey component of the development be placed at the front of the block.
    Therefore say NO to two storey in the backyard.

    Shellie Kavanagh commented

    I would like some more information with regards this amendment to application as there is no information on the council website

    Jason Garlick commented

    I thought this site was being redeveloped into a shopping center with a Woolworth's. Is this still the case?

  4. In Cheltenham VIC on “Use and develop the land...” at 1322 Nepean Highway, Cheltenham, VIC:

    Patricia Taylor commented

    The picket fence has gaps that let the pollution and diesel particulate flow straight to The children playing in the playground right next to the Nepean Highway.
    The link below is to the research showing the asthma and allergies that children suffer caused by childcare centres next to main roads.

    If the picket fence was replaced with a high solid fence, this would reduce somewhat the health damage to the children.

    FiFi Dee commented

    Please ensure adequate parking is included. This would be 1 car minimum for 1 bedroom units and 2 cars minimum for 2 bedroom units. This location is not walking distance to the station so it is likely that occupants will need to drive to work. There is already not enough on-street parking for residents in the area.

    Robyn Van commented

    I am a tenant at 76 Bernard Street, Cheltenham. I understand there has been a planning permit issued for this address. I am interested to have a look at the plans and wondering what the time frame to build would be as my tenancy expires in November and may need to extend.

  9. In Mordialloc VIC on “The subdivision of land...” at 26 Parsons Street, Mordialloc, VIC:

    John Askham commented

    We are due to have a baby in the next few weeks. This construction will mean we cannot use our garden as the area will be contaminated with dust and noise. The property whete construction will commence is along the full length of the rear of out garden with minimal cover from vegetation.

    The construction noise will also cause difficulties with sleeping for the baby, which will be very departmental for a new born and their development.

    Planes do crash sometimes.... touch wood

  11. In Mordialloc VIC on “Use & develop land for...” at 252-258 Lower Dandenong Road, Mordialloc, VIC:

    Mark White commented

    Doesn't sound like an ideal situation to have petrol and diesel storage tanks in a flight path. Surely council needs to think of the implications and refuse the permit.

  12. In Mordialloc VIC on “Use & develop land for...” at 252-258 Lower Dandenong Road, Mordialloc, VIC:

    Rosa Maria commented

    I share the same concern as Louise. Imagine a plan crash there!!! Would the airport consider changing the flight path? Dont think so.

  13. In Cheltenham VIC on “Develop the land for the...” at 7 Maude Street, Cheltenham, VIC:

    Elisabeth Benn commented

    Will the development on the north side, 12-14 Barker st, over shadow this development?

  14. In Mordialloc VIC on “Use & develop land for...” at 252-258 Lower Dandenong Road, Mordialloc, VIC:

    Louise Holmes commented

    I live on a residential property next door and my concern is placing a Service Station literally at the end of the runway and underneath the flight path across the road from Moorabbin Airport.
    There have already been two plane crashes close by. One in Scarlet Street and one at 240 Lower Dandenong Road, a few doors down. If one crashed into a petrol station it would be catastrophic!!

  15. In Edithvale VIC on “Develop the land for the...” at 7 Edithvale Road, Edithvale, VIC:

    Resident of 30 years. commented

    I have no issue with development, however Edithvale Road cannot physically handle anymore cars in peak hour. It can take upwards of 15 minutes to reach the Boundary Road intersection from Ivan Avenue, which is a just a tiny distance of 1.8kms. Upgrade infrastructure first.

    Good morning Council,
    I respectfully request reconsidering placing a telecommunications facility at this site. There is a primary school and busy sports grounds located at this site, and the possible risks of exposure to children and other people in a highly central and much used facility area does not in any way meet community expectations.
    Thank you.

  18. In Parkdale VIC on “Building & works...” at 275-295 Nepean Highway, Parkdale, VIC:

    Sarah Neilson commented

    Put it elsewhere
    The community have been more than vocal about this so I’m surprised it’s still even being looked at
    Children play and people live here.
    Find somewhere else
    I’m certain we are ok with forgoing a few bars more of connection in order to not fry our brains
    Please start listening to your community for goodness sake

    Re: KP 2019/716
    Any reason why this application is not displayed at the front of the property?
    Thank you.

  20. In Highett VIC on “Develop the land for the...” at 1217-1219 Nepean Highway, Highett, VIC:

    Arkie Vee commented

    I read recently that the Amazon rainforest provides 20% of the worlds oxygen. This is now at risk. Trees are like lungs which consume poisonous gas emissions and produce oxygen. What buffoons would destroy them? particularly beside a busy highway where they are SO NEEDED! (that's me shouting). EVERY TREE MATTERS! not just for it's aesthetic appeal. What's this got to do with this development? Well go figure.

  21. In Highett VIC on “Develop the land for the...” at 1217-1219 Nepean Highway, Highett, VIC:

    Cathy Hall commented

    Its a disgrace that mature trees are being destroyed for a fast buck. We complain about the Amazon alight but are our "developers" different?

  22. In Highett VIC on “Develop the land for the...” at 1217-1219 Nepean Highway, Highett, VIC:

    Ian Redfern commented

    As I attend the local medical centre which is virtually next door to this property, I used to admire the four superb mature towering old cypress trees in the front garden. I became concerned about these when I noticed that the orginal 1940's (?) red brick house on the site was vacant and looked as though it might be demolished. Sure enough, when I next went past the property, every tree had been removed. As a result I contacted Kingston council to try to find out why. The response was that the 'trees were affected by rot' but I'd checked the trunks carefully and there was almost none visible and no apparent dieback considering their age. I had to contact the council three times to discover that the council arborist who examined the trees had left just after this - it sounds as though he did a rush job before he took off. It's appalling that these mature trees - which take years to grow - were callously removed by the developer. If a developer tried this in an area like Spindrift Road, Monterey California (the site of Eastwood's 'house' in the Play Misty for Me film) they would have been lynched. The building erected since looks as though it was a joint design venture between Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin - it looks positively Orwellian, and hello - it has west facing windows with no solar protection. This type of tree destruction and poor design does nothing for an area like Highett...nothing.

  23. In Highett VIC on “Develop the land for three...” at 56 Matthieson Street, Highett, VIC:

    Lesley and Michael Lyons commented

    I'm very concerned about developing 3 double story town houses on a 697 sqm.block.There is a protected gum tree on the block!!!
    Parking is limited to one side of the street and with 3 single units directly across from no.56 the middle unit is unable swing into the garage and that is a small car. We are also concerned with privacy looking into our back yard etc.
    Alot of trees have already been cut down can you let us know which ones are protected?

  24. In Moorabbin VIC on “Partial demolition and...” at 40 Healey Street, Moorabbin, VIC:

    Felicia Brown commented

    No problem with the intended usage for the site but parking is already under pressure in the area so new development should include a larger area for car parking. I feel for both residents and businesses in the area if car parking is reduced.

  25. In Moorabbin VIC on “Partial demolition and...” at 40 Healey Street, Moorabbin, VIC:

    Peter Theodosiou commented

    Please don’t reduce the car parking requirements, the redevelopment should not be forcing the surrounding residents and commercial property’s to bear the brunt of the development’s shortcomings.

  26. In Bonbeach VIC on “Develop the land for the...” at 39 Broadway, Bonbeach, VIC:

    Melody Bryan commented

    Hi there

    I am resident at 35 Broadway, Bonbeach and am requesting to see the plans for these proposed dwellings. Could they be emailed to me please?

    Thank you

    Antony Falkingham wrote to local councillor Rosemary West

    This must be rejected it is a sly and dishonest way of creating a two step planning process to get through controversial applications that the community do not want

    Delivered to local councillor Rosemary West. They are yet to respond.

  28. In Dingley Village VIC on “Use of the land for a...” at 321 Old Dandenong Road, Dingley Village, VIC:

    Brian Nicholls commented

    Fantastic to see this land being put to good use.

  29. In Bonbeach VIC on “Development of the land for...” at 20 Williams Grove, Bonbeach, VIC:

    Adrian Quaife wrote to local councillor Rosemary West

    This subdivision will create overlooking concerns for our units at 16 williams grove. The change of use of the right of way from one premise to two via the ROW on 16 williams grove will exceed the situation approved many years ago - two 4 bedroom premises will generate excessive traffic on the ROW.

    Use by a single dwelling would be reasonable use under the ROW that currently exists.

    The 3 storey development up to the boundary line will also exceed building regulations in the area.

    I ask that the local councillor and the planning authority consider these requests - the many and repeated changes to attempt to maximise development at this address is another concern.

    Thank you

    Adrian Quaife

    Hi Adrian,
    Actually, I am a Central Ward councillor and I suggest you should contact your Ward councillors, David Eden, Georgina Oxley & Tamsin Bearsley.
    It wd be a good idea to let them know where this application is up to.
    Also a good idea to ask for a planning consultation with the developer & councillors.
    If you have six objections, you will automatically get a PC.
    I will keep a lookout for this and if none of your Ward CRS can get to the PC, let me know & I'll do my best to get there.

    Also, if you are in a Grz3 area and this is a proposed two storey in the backyard development or if you are concerned about your neighbourhood character, you may like to attend the kingston residents association meeting this Thursday as these topics are on the agenda.

    Allbest
    Rosemary West

    Louise McLean commented

    We received a letter from Kingston Council saying they opposed the building of the 4 Townhouses. We let it go as it was not going ahead. We now see they have been approved and are building 4 townhouses?????? What has happened and why were we not notified it was now going ahead. We have serious issues with regard to our privacy in our backyard and pool area. Can someone please contact us as to why we were not notified they were going ahead. 0402396752.
