I agree with Brad that the number of residences in this development has been maximised beyond expectations. One reason for this, and a continuing serious problem, is Launceston's lack of requirement for 'green space' in new developments. There are no rules for the maximum percentage of a plot of land that can be built on. As long as height restrictions and perimeter distance-from-neighbour rules are followed, nothing else is required. There appears to be no council interest in incorporating helpful, healthy 'green spaces' into each and every new housing approval. The result is a neighbourhood that looks sadly crowded.
