In Portarlington VIC on “Buildings and Works...” at 8 Fisher Street, Portarlington, VIC:

Ned Hoskin commented

My partner and I own the property at 7 Fisher St. Portarlington. The plans which I have viewed on your website do not show the trees which have been removed on the northern side of the building. Furthermore, there appears to be only one new tree to replace the old gums on the northern side of the building.
There are NO new shrubs planned for the northern side. ( ? )
There is ONE only new tree planned for the northern side. ( ? )
ALL planned planting works appear to be on the southern and western side of the building.
I have complained about the beautiful old trees which have come down on the northern side ( despite appearing on the plans as to be retained) and the resultant uninterrupted view of the new CFA building from this, the northern side. Is the CFA trying to retain a water view from their offices? So, yes, on the basis of the plans I have viewed I object to the lack of replacement trees and shrubs on the northern side of that building. Conversations I have had with both the CFA and Bellarine Bayside assured me that the northern side would be adequately replenished with new trees but this is not reflected in the plans on your website. I would appreciate an explanation for this.
