In Brunswick East VIC on “Use and development of site...” at 240 Lygon Street, Brunswick East VIC 3057:

D Birrell commented

I thoroughly agree with L. Baxter's comments about the destruction of the inner (and not only the inner) suburbs being destroyed by developers. Every developer's application calls for reduction in car parking spaces. Contrary to this, developers should be made to provide extra car parking for visitors to the oversize complexes they build. We face the same problem visiting family in Brunswick where in the space of 4 years it has gone from being easy to a find car park when visiting, to impossible.

Overlooking and overshadowing is also a major factor in the ruination of the once pleasant ambience of all residential suburbs, not to mention the loss of gardens and trees which are essential to the environmental health of the city.

I agree with the demand for reduction in size and no reduction in car parking.
