    I live across the road from this proposed development. I am worried that the access to it may also be opposite my home. This is the crest of the hill and our home is set downhill to the SE. My neighbours include pensioners and young children. The increase of traffic on this Rd is dangerous, not to mention the additional noise and air pollution. From the perspective of the neighbouring residents we request THAT THE EXISTING ROUNDABOUT ON BUCKLE ST BE USED AS ACCESS TO THIS (unwanted) DEVELOPMENT.

    Stuart commented

    Dear Bayside Council. This development is surrounded by residential properties who suffer enough from the noise, pollution and traffic from industrial related activities. Please limit this and further industrial activities in this area to 7am-4pm weekdays and zero hours of weekend opening. This property has a number of trucks coming and going belonging to the property, visitors buying and collecting timber, other services such as waste collection and loud timber equipment. A number of properties along this stretch have very loud roller doors which open very early in the morning and disturb the sleep of surrounding residents. Please refuse and allow residential properties to co-exist with industry.

    Yes, no one considers the locals view no matter how many objected. Same as usual no one cares about the rate payers just the dollars in the developers pocket. Disgraceful and a typical communism process.. as expected.

    Please ensure that driveway/fence line is set back from the footpath to enable adequate sight lines when exiting property. Lots of families with toddlers/kindergarten aged children riding/running/scooting on pavement to get to/from childcare centre next door.

    First of all, why aren’t we addressing the root cause of our waste problem? Why have we just resulted into burning garbage when we all know how damaging it will be to the environment, ecosystem and the world in whole?

    I am absolutely disgusted seeing that the idea for a toxic and deadly incinerator is planning to be built in Craigieburn, when there’s estates built built surrounding it and factories in Campbellfied that produce monstrosity amounts of toxic fumes close by. Are we the new China? HOW was this idea smart in any way shape or form?

    We live in such a high class country with access to absolutely anything, this is not the solution to reducing the amounts of waste humans produce as a result of poor waste management in households across the country.
    Please, you wouldn’t want to live in a suburb close to this toxic waste incinerator! So why make us?

    Hi , been living in dryden street for 35 years,what started to be a quit no through street turned over the years to become a very busy street with an absolute challenge to find a car spot if you come home after 5 pm, ( have a video to support my statement) , with so many units built over the years, and most houses or units with garages been used as storage rooms,so the street is full with cars ,and i can not imagine another 2 affordable housing development will be build on each corner of our street totalling 54 units.

  10. In on “Use and Development of the...” at 4 Poplar Drive Romsey VIC 3434:

    Emma Rayner commented

    I am currently building a home located within the Autumn Views Estate where the development has been proposed to be located. I chose the location of Autumn Views for it's quiet atmosphere and family orientated feel, located in a small country town. When purchasing my block of land, I had no knowledge of the possibility of a child care center and/or medial center being considered as a possible development within the estate. Now that I have heard of the proposed development I am regretting my purchase of land at this location and would have chosen another location to invest my money into.

    As a future resident of Romsey, I do not believe that the town is in need of another medical center. It is unnecessary considering Romsey already has three medical facilities that are easily accessible and are not disruptive to the every day life of residents wishing for a calm an quite environment to live in. A facility that includes a 53 space car park and facility that will be in operation from 6:30am to 10pm at night will cause issues to the emotional well being and physical safety of local residents. The increased traffic flow will create unnecessary noise and safety risks to residents. The streets within the Estate were not built to accommodate such an amount of traffic and will also cause added congestion to the already congested Melbourne-Lancfield Road, especially during peek hour times. The increased traffic will destroy the infrastructure put in place resulting in further costs for the council and rate payers of the community. Many future residents of the estate have chosen this location for the quite atmosphere that will allow them to raise children is a safe environment. With the increased traffic flow from a 53 space car park in this location is an accident waiting to happen.

    The Autumn Views Estate currently consists of less than 100 blocks that are located within a Greenfield zone. The building restrictions for land located in a Greenfield zone involves significant setbacks for each lot. the proposed development would not be abiding by the requirements of the zoning which have been enforces for those currently building within the estate, such as myself. From my understanding the purpose of land being allocated as Greenfield is for it to be a residential area that takes into account the key environmental elements of the town and the traditional characteristics of Romsey. The policy intention statement states it is to "Ensure the future subdivision of the greenfield area provides a form of development that reflects valued features of adjoining residential areas and creates a new neighbourhood character which consists of low scale single storey dwellings set within a landscaped setting." The proposed development does not align with the planning for the future of Romsey and the Greenfield area as stated within the Macedon Ranges Shire Council Romsey Residential Character Study Design Guidelines.

    There are many alternative locations within the Romsey community that this development would be more welcomed by residents. The center of town is allocated as a medium density area and would be much more suited to a structure of this proportion. The infrastructure within the medium density area would also better support the increased traffic and general requirements of this facility.

    It is clear from the current conversations occurring among residents of the estate and many other residents of Romsey that this development has no support. Put a stop to this development or seek an alternative location.

    Samantha Merritt commented

    This intersection was done up to accommodate the huge amount of traffic that both narre nth and belgrave hallam rd have been battling for yrs.
    To place such a huge structure in such an odd spot, would surley risk more lives and vehicle damage.
    This structure should be elsewere in fountaingate. And not near a green wedge and farmingland. If the mosque does in fact go ahead, the whole idea of both rds beiing able to be used during their special prayertimes will see gridlock, annoyance and upsetting to residents,
    Narre warren North does have residents and we Will be heard!

    Ayse Kose commented

    I'm writing to object to this proposed waste plant. It is detrimental to our health and causing more harm to the environment that the intention itself.
    It is not only in the heart of built up suburbs but contributing to the countless factories surrounding it spreading more and more toxic chemicals into our air.
    This cannot be the best plan that council has come up with? There are other options in recycling as well as location! So much space that can be utilised and not close to communities.

    Are they allowed to build a new pool with water restrictions in place? Water restrictions likely to go to level 2 very soon.

  16. In Moorebank NSW on “The demolition of existing...” at 21 Araluen Avenue Moorebank NSW 2170:

    Mark C commented

    I don't see how the basics of waste disposal can be met. 9 dwellings means 9 bins + 9 recycling bins on any given waste day. That means 18 bins !!! You're telling me they can fit LEGALLY along the frontage? That also means no cars can park along the frontage of the lot either on bin night. Even with just ONE car per unit, that's 9 cars. 9 cars and 18 bins !!! Where is that going to go ? The reality is people have guests, boyfriends, kids, etc that means there will be more than 9 cars for this development.

    There is no logical reason for these developments given the traffic issues, etc. The only logical reason for council approving these developments is that money is changing hands somewhere.

    It's not clear if the strata management committee have approved this. The council planners would be wasting their time assessing unless the body corporate have given their approval.

    As per plan and part of the original application a car stacker has to installed to be compliant
    None as yet . With parking a premium in this area I suggest the building is fully finished before approval.

    Is7 days a week not enough . Now they want 24 hours a day 7 days a week for no ones benefit but their own. The Caltex 24 hour heavy vehicle station is purpose built . And a 24 hour shop n petrol station is definitely not wanted or needed . The operator has already stated he has no control over the trucks and anything outside his property as is the case now and he wants this to be expanded . There was supposed be no variations after the last approvals he sought . This ridiculous application needs to be rejected in its entirety .

    Kevin Coleman commented

    Quite amazing & greatly worrying that these developments after approapapprovdeveloper applies for major density modifications. Many developers now hold off waiting a few years knowing that over a relatively short time their applications will allow for way more density, height & profit.
    An example: 1 to 7 Bowns Road Kogarah. 2011, 3 storey approved, 2014 5 floors, 2019 7 floors. No start so they are probably waiting on 11 to 14 floors. This is right beside a single storey heritage house (number 9). What a travesty!

    Kersty little commented

    Dear council, i wish to register a complaint against proposed Application No. P22489 by ENRGX PTY LTD. This facility has some very serious implications.

    - Burning our waste to produce energy does nothing to address the core problem of waste generation, it will create a DEMAND for more waste. Council should be encouraging buying, using and consuming less, not more.

    - Burning waste for energy creates emissions and toxins, which will pollute the area. I object to this pollution being sanction by Council. Also to consider are the pollution haze, acid rain. Consider what has happened in Beijing, they burn rubbish for fuel and have suffered huge negative environmental impacts.

    - This proposal takes energy away from real and better efforts to recycle. Will there be a push for recycling that causes less emissions and more beneficial for the environment eg recycled playground equipment, household products, road surfacing. These are projects the Council has already supported. What will happen to these types of projects once’s burning waste become profitable. Will they still be encouraged and supported by the council. It also undermines efforts to create cleaner and better forms of energy such as wind, hydro and geothermal power.

    I believe that ENRGX PTY LTD is proposing this plant for profit with no regard for our community health, lifestyle and environment, I wish to register my objection to this application.

    It is horrifying that the area i have chosen to raise my family in will now be polluted with toxic emissions that will affect my families health.

    Kind regards

    Kersty Little

    I fully support this DA. Epping needs more commercial/retail spaces in order for it to grow into its role of being a strategic hub.

    All those who oppose or hinder Epping's development and growth towards being a strategic hub.... they can move to another suburb.

    julien august commented

    despite any amount of filtres or safety nets, such an obsolete form of energy and waste management, is dangerous to the population of a large growing city. Fine particles of pollution are transported and spread easily and become a threat to not only asthmatics, people with respiratory diseases but also any healthy person breathing in these carcinogens.

    How a modern country like australia is planning an old form of energy and waste management when even developing countries are moving away from it, is such a horrible surprise

  28. In Chatswood NSW on “Request to remove 3x trees...” at 728 Pacific Highway Chatswood NSW 2067.:

    David Grover commented

    The property at 728 Pacific Highway is the Toyota Car Yard.
    It is difficult to determine which trees are the subject of this application. However, there are very few trees remaining on the site following its rebuild and those that remain were retained intentionally in the original development application.
    The trees at the rear form an important barrier between this extensive commercial establishment and high rise buildings and the residential areas below in West Chatswood.
