    Building a dwelling at the back of this property and leaving the existing dwelling in the front this has no street appeal and cheapens the area very disappointing

    John Rivis commented

    As a weekly user of Fairhill Parade/ Kennedy street I experience the congestion in this street from parents cars going to/from Glen Waverley Primary School at drop off and pick-up times. Cars parked on the road near the childcare centre will further restrict the movement of vehicles in this area.

  3. In Glen Waverley VIC on “Use and development of the...” at 1 Fairhills Parade Glen Waverley VIC 3150:

    Nerida Speechley commented

    The parking allocation for this development is totally inadequate. This street is extremely busy between 2:45-4:14pm due to parents picking up their children from Glen Waverley Primary School. The parking allocation for this development is 25 car spaces. As the allocation for this childcare centre is 99 children with operating hours 6:30am-6:30pm, all 25 car spaces will be taken up by staff with even more staff parking on the street. The 99 potential parents will also need to find car parks in the street. This makes it very dangerous for the school children as they leave Glen Waverley Primary School as cars parent cars will be unable to move through the streets due to the additional parked cars.

    Proposed plan for number 22 Colonel Street, Clayton, VIC 3168

    Dear Monash Council,

    Please kindly:
    1. Relocate the garage, as it is literally almost "sharing a wall" with my bedroom. This will cause noise and sleep disturbance for me.
    2. The gap between the units: too narrow. Please kindly widen it.
    3. The new building is going to block the afternoon sun. Please don't let it happen.
    4. The fence will need to be higher for privacy.
    5. The windows: please kindly have them frosted, so that the people living there can't invade my privacy/ can't look into my backyard.

    Thank you

    Rawaty Ie commented

    Dear Monash City Council

    My name is Rawaty Ie and I live in Unit 2, 24 Colonel Street.

    I'd like to express some concerns about this plan please:

    1. The brick garage next to my unit:
    The brick garage (in P63.9 area) will be right next to my bedroom. My bedroom will literally be almost "sharing" a wall with the garage: Please change this, as this will cause noise and thus sleep disturbance for me. Please amend the location of the garage.

    2. The distance between my unit and the proposed unit:
    The distance is too close. Again, this will cause noise disturbance. Please make the gap wider.

    3. The height of the building: too high and will cover the sun from my backyard.

    4. Windows facing my unit:
    Please make all the windows frosted/ not see through, so the people living there can't see down my backyard. I would like to have my privacy respected.

    Please kindly consider my concerns, especially regarding the garage. Please, I beg you, not to let it be right next to my bedroom and please widen the gap between our buildings.

    Thank you
    Kind regards

    John Rivis commented

    I totally agree with Margaret Chamberlains comments. This is an overdevelopment which destroys the amenity of the area for the long term residents. It is developer's greed and no consideration for other's amenity. Build fewer units of a higher quality than proposed.

  7. In Glen Waverley VIC on “Construction of seven (7)...” at 6 Saladin Avenue Glen Waverley VIC 3150:

    Margaret Chamberlain commented

    I have lived in this street for 24 years and was drawn to the quiet friendly, family type feeling it provided - I was also attracted by the view I had over to the Dandenongs in the distance, that view is now almost non existent due to huge houses and town houses surrounding me - there have been a lot of changes over that time and now the street is turning into an overdeveloped jungle - it is very difficult already to manoeuvre around all the cars parked in the street, which was never built for such numbers and there have been a number of accidents, as a result- I think it’s time council considered the look and vibe of the area and keep at least the last remaining features of attractiveness and appeal to this street as an inviting place where all age groups can live without feeling suffocated. And, also consider long term residents who have contributed greatly to the area but who feel they are being squeezed out of their homes without any consideration - Lastly, I think this proposed development is completely out of character for this neighbourhood and will do nothing for the good of the neighbourhood in the long run, the betterment of our street should not solely revolve around extra income for council!!!!

  8. In Mount Waverley VIC on “Construction of three (3)...” at 5 Hustler Court Mount Waverley VIC 3149:

    Tina commented

    I don't believe that a 3 unit development is a good fit for a small court location with no other unit developments in this area. It would create a inconsistent look for this area and 3 x double story units would impact on the street scape of the surrounding properties. I don't believe it should go ahead.

  9. In Glen Waverley VIC on “Variation of covenant...” at 38 Gyton Avenue Glen Waverley VIC 3150:

    Simon Spillane commented

    There are many covenants in this area from material to number of dwellings per block. I think it would be wrong to start a precedent to allow covenants to be removed.

  10. In Oakleigh VIC on “Construction of four (4)...” at 1 Golf Links Avenue Oakleigh VIC 3166:

    John commented

    This location is right on a busy intersection when at peek times can have cues of cars at each point of the roundabout trying to enter the intersection. It is irresponsible and unsafe to introduce four drive ways into the mix. There is also extremely limited visitor parking.
    Further to this, the block size is only just over 600 sqm which means each property is going to be no bigger than 150 to 160 sqm. An average town house land size is over 300 sqm.
    Unbelievable that this amount of dwellings is even considered on the site.

  11. In Chadstone VIC on “Construction of a three...” at 307 Huntingdale Road Chadstone VIC 3148:

    Elle Sarris commented

    This construction would overdo the amount of apartments in the area and the traffic and parking on the nearby streets which is already strained, will become impossible to manage for residents and people visiting the nearby parks and recreation facilities (ie. on Burton Street).

  12. In Mount Waverley VIC on “Alterations and additions...” at 1/5 Arthurson Street Mount Waverley VIC 3149:

    Jan Moore commented

    I respectfully request that trees are not removed in the process, or for any thar are removed a replacement of same be planted. Recent developments in the surrounding streets often mean clear felling, have little setback for planting, resulting in a severely diminished tree-scape — a feature of Mount Waverley gardens and streets that in fact attracts residents to the area. Protect the trees please.

    Brenda Lai & Nelson Su commented

    Dear Councillor,
    We are resident in Princetown Road and we live really close to the address of the proposed development of a childcare centre.
    We wish to lodge our objection to this development due to serious concerns about the already really bad and out of control parking and traffic situation near the primary school will be surely become a lot worse.
    We wish the councillor please consider the stress and delay that we are already currently experiencing when we trying to drive out to work from home. Especially from between 8:45am to 9:10am we are stuck in the location traffic jam seeing those parents parking on park lane in front of and near the primary school and cars on both direction were beating to get through the narrow single lane space....And this also going create more safety threats for the local pedestrian especially those little kids during the school time.
    Instead of solving this issue us nearby residents, we are so sad and frustrate to hear something is going to develop to make the whole situation worse. This is too hard to accept.
    We sincerely beg for the councillor to reject this application of this development of commerial traffic and parking hazards.

    Thanks very much for your attention to this matter.

    Yours Sincerely,
    Brenda Lai & Nelson Su

  14. In Glen Waverley VIC on “Construction of a four (4)...” at 1 Railway Parade North Glen Waverley VIC 3150:

    JOHN RIVIS commented

    This is clearly an overdevelopment of the area. It dwarfs the existing single storey properties neighbouring this proposed development. Limiting this development to 2 storey with underground carpark is not unreasonable.

  15. In Hughesdale VIC on “Construction of two (2)...” at 16 Callander Street Hughesdale VIC 3166:

    brendan forehan commented

    The best part of Hughesdale is that it remains one of the last truly residential suburbs. While other suburbs have succumbed to multi storey dwellings and sub divisions, just look at what Carnegie and Murrumbeena have become. Hughesdale has always been a single dwelling suburb and it is much better for it. It would be an absolute shame to see that unique aspect be a thing of the past. Keep the suburb's unique qualities in tact please. We have too many concrete jungles that just ruin the streetscape and bring down the essence of what a suburb is.

  16. In Glen Waverley VIC on “Construction of seven (7)...” at 6 Saladin Avenue Glen Waverley VIC 3150:

    Joanne Booth commented

    I totally concur with the above comments. This overcrowding in terms of traffic and parking was one of the main reasons that we sold up and left the area.

  17. In Glen Waverley VIC on “Construction of seven (7)...” at 6 Saladin Avenue Glen Waverley VIC 3150:

    John Rivis commented

    I agree entirely with the comments of Jo Lucas.
    This overdevelopment is not good for Mount Waverley.
    The nearest railway station is kilometers away.
    It is my understanding that the Council was restricting development to a maximum of 3 townhouses per block. What has happened to this new objective??
    John Rivis

  18. In Glen Waverley VIC on “Construction of seven (7)...” at 6 Saladin Avenue Glen Waverley VIC 3150:

    jo lucas commented

    If I may say so, this is a completely inappropriate development for this location. It is nowhere near a train station or a shopping centre or other areas where such developments are usually occurring. On my understanding this size development is unprecedented in this location and therefore should not be permitted. Waverley Road is busy enough as it is in peak hour. There is no safe parking on that street or in Saladin Ave as the streets simply are not wide enough to cater for parking AND traffic. We do not need more people creating more congestion issues in this area. In addition may I please kindly ask that, for the benefit of absolute transparency, the following is clarified by the relevant parties associated with this proposed development:
    1) what parking allowance will be made for each dwelling? Specifically, how many OFF STREET car spots are provided per dwelling. In addition, in respect to each dwelling, does the number of OFF STREET car spots accord with the number of bedrooms proposed each dwelling?
    2. Just for the sake of good order, please disclose in full any actual or potential conflicts of interest between decision making staff at Council /government departments and the contractors and/or trades persons and/or developers and/or owners of the land upon which this development is proposed. For the purpose of clarity this should include but not be limited to relationships of any kind between said parties.
    3. Just for the sake of good order please confirm if any benefits or advantages are or have been or will be provided to any council staff / government departments in relation to this proposed development.
    I fully expect the above will be in order and in 'good faith' and I look forward to hearing confirmation on all of the above shortly. I thank you for your assistance in this matter.

    Allan commented

    This would be a complete shame if this was approved and it would basically clarify the council obviously have monetary reasons for approving this, hence fees n charges 4 or 5 extra rates per year in comparison to one,lust goes on.
    Not only that but people in that particular st have paid a premium for these particular block. They are paying for the peaceful tranquility and privacy of that particular area and the certain people want to come and wreck this. It’s not except able.
    Stand up every body and voice your opinion.

    Shantha wrote to local councillor Rebecca Paterson

    Why is that councils are all the time now approving planning developments without the required car parking spaces, like in this case waiving of the car parking space. Parking in any area of the Monash council is becoming a night mare with more and more car park being utilised for other purpose or completely taken off. More developments nowadays are being approved by this council with no thought of car parking spaces.

    replied to Shantha

    Hi Shantha,

    Thank you for your enquiry.

    A developer can apply for a permit to include a waiver of car parking requirements. I notice that quite often, Council receives a request from the developer to waive some or all of the car parking requirements.

    However, just because that is what is applied for, that doesn’t mean Council will necessarily approve that. In some circumstances we may approve the permit but ask for the full complement of car parking, or refuse the permit altogether.

    In most cases, the difficulty with parking comes from sites where the car parking quotas have actually been met, but users choose to park on the street instead, or have more cars than what is provided on site and this causes the congestion.

    With a 2 bedroom house needing one space and a 3+ bedroom only needing two spaces, there are many occasions where the correct amount is woefully inadequate particularly when you start to look at larger multi-unit developments.

    Council has no opportunity to impose greater car parking requirements than those quotas mentioned above, which are set by the state government.

    I share your concerns around what the increase in development has meant for road safety, congestion and ease of parking, and I have been working with Council on initiatives that seek to increase ease of movement around the city and encourage more investment in public transport.

    Kind Regards

    pasquale perri commented

    We have recently purchased in the street as we moved away from an area where there where multiple unit developments which caused many issues in our street.
    From the lengthly build period where large trucks where constantly in and out of the street causing traffic kaos to tradies parking in our driveways .
    When this house caught on fire last year the fire dept struggled to get into the street from one end because of the current congestion in the top of the street which cars overflow into the end of the street. We feel that a four unit site will cause major issues in the street.
    Although the plans indicate 2 car spaces per unit, three of the units have tandom carparks which will lead to many cars been left on the street to avoid moving cars all the time.
    We understand that developments are always going to happen but we feel a 4 unit site is just not appropriate ,It will take away from the beautiful quite street and devalue the street.

    It's nice to see old house being replace with new town house. It's means progress and modernization of suburb. Totally agree with Joe Lorenzo, it's waking distance to train station and will take cars out of the street, full potential development us essential for future use, obviously the population will expand for those who oppose think about your kids and your grandchildren where will u house them. We live in the new century not in the 70's we need to keep up with all the latest technology , unfortunately that's the future of melbourne, with in .5 km of train station land need to be use wisely.

    This is close proximity to train station, land is expensive we need to maximize and share for the benefit of human nature. The concil should consider up to 5 story tall to give more space . I totally agree for full potential development especially if with in walking distance to train station.

    CNCL11-4154

    Hi Luke

    Thank you for writing to me regarding your concern about development happening in the area surrounding your new home. I am pleased that to hear you are currently enjoying your home that you have recently moved into and if you have not lived within the City of Monash I hope you enjoy all that the City has to offer.

    In regards to the specific concerns you raise, I have had the opportunity to get some advice regarding this application from Council’s Director City Development, Peter Panagakos. Peter has advised that the proposed development you refer to is for the construction of three buildings ranging in height from 4 to 18 storeys to be used for 348 residential apartments, 106 serviced apartments/residential hotel, retail tenancies including a supermarket and cafe/food and drink premises. The site is large, being approximately 9,600 square metres, and encompasses the land at 807-811 Warrigal Road and 1513-1517 Dandenong Road, Oakleigh.

    The application was considered by Council at the 31 January 2017 Council meeting where the application was not supported. The applicant had appealed the decision to VCAT and hearings occurred in late May. Council was represented at the VCAT hearings by Maddocks lawyers.

    During the course of VCAT’s consideration of the proposal, the applicant amended the plans. The main change was to reduce the overall height of the development from 18 storeys to 11 storeys (with some parts of the development being as low as 4 storeys). Council considered these amended plans at a Special Council meeting held on 16 May 2017 and further reduced the height to 8 storeys. Details of this decision can be accessed at: http://www.monash.vic.gov.au/About-Us/Council/Agendas-amp-Minutes/16-May-2017#agenda

    The rezoning of industrial land north of Dandenong Road in 2011 – including the subject site and the land where your apartment sits – was done so to facilitate the establishment of apartment/residential development in amongst existing (and new) commercial land uses. As part of this, planning policy for this area suggests building heights of up to 6 storeys facing Dandenong Road. However, since the introduction of this planning policy, there has been new development which you can see in and around this area, which has slowly changed the context of the area. In doing so, Council thinks that a building height higher than 6 storeys is appropriate in some areas. In this regard, Council considers that a higher building height (than 6 storeys) is appropriate on this site, given that it is located on the corner of two main roads and also, given that the ‘main’ height of the development is oriented to the corner. Council considers this in the context of existing apartment buildings that exist in this area. While your apartment has a view west, toward this site, there is some distance between your property and the subject site.

    The decision on the future of this site was made by VCAT yesterday, 30th June and they have supported the amended plans, which allow for 11 storeys on the site.

    Your apartment building is one of the first buildings that have been developed in this precinct. It’s possible in future that more apartment buildings will be constructed near to you, to take advantage of Council’s policy for regeneration in this area. Council will consider each planning application as we receive them. As a land owner, you will be notified directly of any new development on land adjoining your apartment building.

    As this proposal is considered to be a large development in the context of the City of Monash, the decision by VCAT will be updated on the Monash website next week. I would encourage you to monitor the website (you can subscribe to pages that you’re interested in) or contact James Heitmann, Principal Planner on 9518 3628 at any time for a further update.

    Kind regards, Rebecca

  28. In Glen Waverley VIC on “Use of a convenience...” at 600 High Street Road Glen Waverley VIC 3150:

    John Rivis commented

    An inappropriate development in a residential area located on a main road with no parking provided..
    Parking requirements should NOT be waived as there is a parking and traffic crisis in the area now.
    Hunter Street has a high traffic volume during the proposed operating times of 8:00am to 4:00pm. High Street Road and Blackburn Road intersection is congested and vehicles use Hunter Street and Matthew Street to avoid this intersection.
    There are parking restrictions, NO STANDING 8:00am to 4:00pm in Hunter Street adjacent to this proposed development. These were installed to ensure there are no restrictions to through traffic turning from High Street Road into Hunter Street.
    This development should not be approved. If it is, it will create a precedent for similar developments on adjacent properties!

    I agree with the comments above from the point of view that parking and traffic issues need to be considered carefully and this need to guide appropriate design .
    However, as a very local resident, and also as someone who has nothing to do with the proposal, I support the development (perhaps in a modified form) in that this is an ideal location for apartment use and low level retail/mixed use/ medical centre etc given its close proximity to the Syndal Activity Centre, to the train station, buses, schools, services etc etc.

    Comments suggesting that this is not the city etc may not be so relevant any more. In the last 50 years Waverley (Mt Waverley, Glen Waverley) has changed so much and will continue to change. By 2050 it is estimated that Melbourne's population will go towards 8 Million people (from 4+Million now). We cannot send all these people (and our children) to Pakenham and beyond, there must be in-fill development in the suburbs as well to utlise existing services. Similarly, if there are no apartments and townhouses in the suburbs, it is very likely that your kids and mine will not be able to live in Mt Waverley in 20 years time, as a house here will simply be unaffordable (isn't it already?).
    In addition, from what I have seen, Council tries hard to strike a balance between allowing developmental progress and protecting the amenity of various areas and that is their primary concern and not that of accepting fees from developers and they deserve our greater support. I submit that for the reasons above, rational and well planned change that continues to strike a balance between the potential of locations and does consider traffic, parking, neighbours, livability etc, does serve the interests of existing owners and occupiers in this area for the reasons outlined above as well as those that will come to live here one day in the future when we are all long gone.

    I agree with those that are against this development. I am also completely against it. This area is already too congested and parking at any time of the day or evening is mostly impossible. There are practically no disabled parking zones. There is no reasons I can fathom that a council acting in good faith ought to allow this sort of development. This development should be denied and as such act to dissuade other similar kinds of inappropriate developments that do not serve the interests of existing owners and occupiers in this zone.
