In Portarlington VIC on “Construction of a Dwelling...” at 7-9 Granada Drive, Portarlington, VIC:

Chris Kelly commented

The problem lies with the Portarlington Structure Plan, which residents did not object to when it was proposed. This allows differing height limits depending on where in the town the proposal is located - you can see the map on CoGG website. There is no voting involved in the objection process, but if residents want to object, make sure you phrase the objection to CoGG very carefully. Loss of view and period of residence is not a really strong ground for objection if the plans fall within the Plan’s guidelines. Best thing to hope for is the State Government’s election promise to legislate to protect the distinctive character of Bellarine townships, but this Granada Drive proposal could never fall under that - it will be decided on soon, under existing rules
