In Rosanna VIC on “Construction of six (6)...” at 28 Millicent Street , Rosanna, VIC:

Lyn commented

I oppose the waiver of on-site visitor car parking requirement. I live in Millicent Street, near the Lower Plenty Road end, and we already have constant issues in the street due to parked vehicles. Millicent Street is used by many locals as a short cut between Rosanna Road and Lower Plenty Road, causing excess traffic especially during peak hour and school pick up and drop off times. Due to poor parking management, traffic often banks up at the Lower Plenty Road intersection, which impedes access to and from my residence. We also have issues with garbage collection, due to the number of parked vehicles, etc. Waiving the visitor parking restrictions will further impact what should be a quiet side street, but has become a main thoroughfare.
I also oppose the construction of 6 double-storey dwellings on a block of only just over 1,200m2. A recent development around the corner at 14 Joliffe Street has 4 double-storey residences on a block of just over 1,000m2. The units located at 30 Millicent have only 3 single-storey units on a block of not much under 1,000m2, and the units at 37 Millicent Street have 4 single-storey units on a block of around 1,100m2. A precedent has been set, and council need to preserve the values of the existing properties in this street by declining this significant increase in the previous application.
