In Hawthorn East VIC on “Use of the land for 356...” at 33 - 37 Camberwell Road Hawthorn East VIC 3123:

Ian Barnes commented

Another intensive development in the area where car parking relaxations are sought. The area south and north of Camberwell Rd are experiencing intensive unit developments where individual developments are assessed by Council and developers are continually maximising their developments by reducing their required car parking provision.

Council have no strategic planning approach to the area where the parking spillage into adjoining lower density residential areas is considered. It is purely pro-development. Until this is in place and fully considers existing residents, no relaxations should be reasonably supported. VCAT typically don't consider existing resident impacts without an appropriate local area structure plan that properly considers the wider impacts of the intensification of the area and its resident ratepayers.
