    Too high. Too bulky. Destroys existing amenity and use rights. Moreland Council please reject this plan.

    Yes Larry Gardner, I've said it countless times but it falls on deaf ears.
    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. How many times, how much more protest is needed before these unnecessary developments STOP!

    Hi Robbi,

    Needless to say I'll be declaring a conflict of interest by close association.

    This building houses our beloved Rumi restaurant.

    The applicants are our landlords.

    Barbara Simon commented

    At the time of my previous comments I had not received the plans for this development from the Council. I now see that there is NO parking provision for this development. In this busy area I feel the council needs to review this DA together with my earlier comments

    Let it go ahead as what I was sent will be the tallest and the longest pontoon in the world.
    Quay Circuit is nowhere near North Quay!

    Jason A commented

    McDonald Road is not wide enough to allow for 2 cars let alone demolition trucks and equipment. Demolition vehicles and construction vehicles is going to endanger residents of this street due to the above .
    2 cars can not pass side by side on this road now as it sits .

    This property is also located in the middle of a Koala Habitat Reserve .

  6. In Kingsgrove NSW on “Demolish existing...” at 104 Caroline Street, Kingsgrove NSW 2208:

    Sankaran N Murthy commented

    The proposed facility is unsuitable for this street and I object to the said proposal.
    The stretch of Caroline Street between Shaw Street and Edward Street houses two well-patronized Catholic schools viz St Ursulas Girls High and Our Lady of Fatima Primary. These generate heavy traffic in the morning and afternoon.
    In addition, this street is nowadays used as a bypass for Kingsgrove Road by motorists proceeding East.
    In addition, the nearby Kingsgrove Railway Station, Catholic Church and Kingsgrove Public School also generate some traffic and parking demand in this part of Caroline Street.
    It is not hard to see that this is quite a busy street at certain times of working days - and a large part of this traffic involves schoolchildren. Already, double parking by parents to drop off small children is rife - how safe is that?
    It is already to difficult to exit from Shaw Street on to Kingsgrove Road. The proposed facility will only worsen the problem.
    Therefore, any facility that generates additional traffic of small children is unsafe unsuitable for this location.

    Larry Gardner wrote to local councillor Samantha Ratnam

    Moreland, please listen. I am tired of writing over and over again. These huge constructions along what was once a familiar, slow-paced, easily accessible inner city landscape with small shops in quaint heritage buildings is totally killing our neighbourhood. Killing it—totally. We did not vote this council in to create a shopping mall along our quieter end of lygon Street. Giant, cold, wind tunnels, unpleasant facades, dark, cold streets, million more cars...... We don't want this anymore. Stop now.

  10. In Epping NSW on “Tree Application - Request...” at 36 Surrey Street Epping NSW 2121:

    J Dawes commented

    I am concerned at the potential loss of even more trees from the Epping area. This suburb has acquired its leafy character with trees on everyone's properties, and it will create a local microclimate that is more pleasant in summer with more trees. We all benefit from keeping trees in the landscape - people as well as animals.

  11. In Eastwood NSW on “Tree Application - 4 X TREE...” at 12 Ward Street Eastwood NSW 2122:

    M.McCartney commented

    I object to the removal of these 4 trees to make room for a granny flat. This sets a precedent that it is OK to remove trees for granny flats, which it is NOT. The building design for the granny flat needs to be modified so the trees can remain. Move it closer to the house or add it to the house if needed.

    The trees where there first, they are vital for our environment, they should not be removed. This is a leafy suburb and we value them and do not want to see them removed. In addition, they are near the neighbour's fence line. Do the neighbours agree to this tree removal? What compensation can be given to them for this loss? Nothing can replace them and a view of a granny flat will not suffice.

    Fred commented

    Trees are disappearing from our area faster than sausages from a bar-b-que. They aren't an unfashionable accessory - they are an integral part of the air, water and weather cycles. Unless they are legitimately dangerous, which these four don't seem to be, they should be preserved.

  13. In Harrington NSW on “Dwelling & Swimming Pool” at 77 Pretoria Parade, Harrington NSW 2427:

    Rob benjemin commented

    This is a warning about the owner Jai and regan collis, they have a property at 16 gungully road upper Lansdowne, which is now and has been a air b&b rental, weather council is aware of this or not. Now with this property they are planning on doing the same and renting it on air bnb. I,m pretty sure there will be several neighbours not wanting this with parties and privacey taken away, please believe this, they are out to make a tremendous amount of money to pay for renovations and building cost on both properties.

    Jeffrey R Dye commented

    Most honorable Council
    It does not comply
    It is an insult to it's neighbours
    It is a blight on the streetscape
    It is nothing more than developer greed leaving a tragedy in it's wake
    It should NOT pass

    Clause 2a has nothing to do with public parking. It is requested by civil engineer for the purpose of structural requirements.

  18. In Glenhaven NSW on “Place of Worship” at 1 Larapinta Place, Glenhaven:

    Resident of Glenhaven commented

    You will forever ruin a beautiful green, semi rural place like Glenhaven. I can’t believe this was even considered!! Glenhaven is no a place for a mosque & why are there so many mosques in Sydney anyways.. I have no concerns with any other religion but this brings trouble with it .. there are young families living here so stop this right now ..

  19. In Artarmon NSW on “Request to remove 6 trees” at 15-17 Barton Road Artarmon NSW 2064.:

    Susan Livingston commented

    A look at 15-17 Barton Road through Google Street view reveals a large ageing apartment complex, with only the scattered eucalyptus trees (gum trees) softening its stark appearance. They look great, they provide greenery and interest, and they are probably enjoyed by the many residents of that building. Why do 6 need to be removed? WCC please consider the impact this will have and consider other ways of dealing with whatever the issue is.

  20. In Woy Woy NSW on “Residential Flat Building...” at 8 Farnell Road, Woy Woy NSW 2256:

    Jennifer Dempsey commented

    This development is contrary to the wellbeing of those who live in the immediate area. The intersection of Blackwall Road and Farnell Road is already extremely problematic for residents and an extra 55 care spaces in this development would make it untenable. The proposal is overwhelming and far too large for this area. The contention by the developer that the liveability of the area would be improved is laughable. There is no infrastructure in the street and it doesn’t look like any improvement is planned. As previously mentioned schools and medical services cannot meet the community need now. This development needs to be substantially scaled back to meet planning restrictions.

  21. In Brunswick East VIC on “Construction of an 8-storey...” at 116 Lygon Street, Brunswick East VIC 3057:

    Mark Jenkinson commented

    An 8 storey monolith on a heritage streetscape makes no urban planning sense regarding shadowing, wind tunnel and any appreciation of appropriate scale.
    That many dwellings has a big negative impact on the overstretched infrastructure of Brunswick which, if approved, means liveability and community values will again be bulldozed by developers.

  22. In Woy Woy NSW on “Residential Flat Building...” at 8 Farnell Road, Woy Woy NSW 2256:

    Dulcie Bucksath commented

    It would be sad to see Woy Woy becoming like the suburbs in Sydney with high rise developments taking over streets that are not designed for such structures. Also our roads and infrastructure are not capable of handling a higher volume of traffic. As it is now, our roads are a disgrace, with Blackwall Road becoming a parking lot in peak hour. The Council need to think and plan carefully as to where such developments are built, but certainly Farnell Street is not a suitable location.

    Helen Hampton wrote to local councillor Geoff McDonald

    What I had thought was a park now appears to be 8 blocks to be divided into 44 blocks? And on a water course /valley area? No doubt all the trees will go. The road kill caused by the encroaching quarry, DHA site, Pascoe Lane area
    development and Infinit8 activities is more evident already.

    Lesley Harvey commented

    While renewal of buildings on the Peninsula is good to see, we are losing established shade trees at an alarming rate. Can the owners retain the tree in the back yard as part of taking away the garage conversion or new granny flat?
    Also, with the increasing number of granny flats being approved, can Council ensure owners are providing sufficient off-street parking for tenant's cars (at least two spaces)?

  25. In Umina Beach NSW on “Secondary Dwelling” at 22 Perth Street, Umina Beach NSW 2257:

    While renewal of buildings on the Peninsula is good to see, we are losing established shade trees at an alarming rate. Can the owners retain one or some of the trees in the back and side yard?

    While renewal of buildings on the Peninsula is good to see, we are losing shade trees at an alarming rate. Is there a chance the owners could retain the large tree in the back yard?
    Also, with the increasing number of granny flats being approved, can Council ensure owners are providing sufficient off-street parking for tenant's cars (at least two spaces)?

    And I suppose they will be chopped up into little 400 to 500 square metre blocks.
    Any further development in this area should require at least 30% of green space
    on any block after building, otherwise it would end up another getto in the future.

    John jones commented

    Hi.

    I live next door to the proposal and strongly object to this development.

    Every morning and afternoon on weekdays parents park there vehicles in front on my driveway blocking me in.

    There is way too much vehicle traffic during drop off and pick up of children.

    This development would be a disaster to this street.
