In Ivanhoe VIC on “Development of an apartment...” at 24 & 26 Lower Heidelberg Road, Ivanhoe, VIC:

Emily Wright commented

The proposed development at 24-26 Lower Heidelberg Road is completely out of character with the area, and will detract from the lifestyle that is Ivanhoe.

Main issues include:
-separation distances with existing properties requested under offsets are unacceptable, and there will be towering over existing backyards invading privacy and conpromising the skyline
- monotonous design is an eyesore and not in character with the Ivanhoe facade
- proposed section at the top for air conditioner units will generate noise pollution and be an eyesore.
- proposal to move the bus stop is concerning. It currently serves the school and community well having been placed logically for a reason and this should not be compromised, particularly mixing traffic and school children, for the sole benefit of a developer.
- the increased traffic load (50 apartments v 2 dwellings) will adversely impact traffic flow, particularly given its proximity to Ivanhoe Grammar School. This could also have dangerous consequences mixing student foot traffic with new excessive residential traffic
