In Thornbury VIC on “Demolition of the existing...” at 752 High Street Thornbury VIC 3071:

Helen Watson commented

I am opposed to the planned development for 752 High Street Thornbury. The extreme height of the development will contribute to a continuing claustrophobic closing in of High Street.

The reduced car parking facilities will exacerbate an already difficult parking situation in surrounding streets, as the local demographic of young families will continue to rely on private vehicles in addition to public transport.

Aside from the new development being an inappropriate and unwelcome addition to High Street, I feel strongly that the current dwelling should be retained. It is a unique, historic dwelling, that contributes significantly to the character of the streetscape and once buildings like this are lost, that character is lost to the local community forever. Many locals view this particular building with great affection and interest. Despite living a few blocks away from this development, my family and I walk up and down High Street frequently to access various shops and local facilities and the loss of a significant High St building impacts on many, many local residents.
