In Mount Lawley WA on “Proposed Construction of...” at 77 Forrest Street, Mount Lawley, WA, 6050:

Simon commented

Residential streets in the older inner suburbs of Perth like Mt Lawley are already 'developed'. There is an ideal mix of housing options here, and a diverse range of long term residents and families, with a good balance of flats, terraced houses and family sized homes. We don't want the so called 'redevelopments' that degrade and threaten to destroy what makes the areas so desirable. So called 'developers' and 'investors' looking to build gigantic multi storied flat blocks or McMansions to sell on for profit, should be restricted from building in these areas. They should be encouraged to create infill developments closer to the city centre and in under utilised industrial, 'unused' or 'undeveloped' areas. There is an abundance of space around the city with potential for high density development. These developments do not suit the existing infrastructure of the long established inner suburbs. They put strain on the existing emenities and ruin the character of the area. The local government should protect our character suburbs and prevent these 'developments' from happening here.
