In Newtown VIC on “Use and Development of One...” at 17 And 19 Holyrood Avenue, Newtown, VIC:

Greg McDonald commented

This is not an objection but rather an observation. These plans were drawn up 10 years ago and never acted apon. The area has moved on since and the demographics have changed considerably. Whilst also there 10 years ago, the Fyans Park Kindergarten has undergone expansion, Fyans Park Primary a little further north has an excellent reputation and this property backs on to a play ground beautifully maintained by residents. Much development has gone on around this location and house prices all now exceed $700,000. These commercial shops would be better left as shops and the undeveloped rear facing the playground allowed to become a cafe or restaurant at a tenants expense. The landlord could do structural upgrades and once the property is leased, then consider further development. I think this is an under use of this site and second story dwellings will have limited demand for residential rental or an owner occupier. Maybe think again. It may be in your best interests and those of the local community.
