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

Rhonda Bavington commented

Whilst this is a warehouse space being converted, there should be a limit to the height and number of apartments permitted per block. Already there is an 8 storey development going in at 272 and on the other side of the street a 6 storey development. The congestion in this area is already causing danger to the pedestrians, cyclists and road users.

Parking should not be restricted, and the shadowing of the area is becoming an issue also. 1 and 2 bedroom apartments do not lead to long term residents. The suburbs loses on building a culture based around community involvement.

I am not opposed to development, but would like it to contribute to the community as opposed to destroying it.
