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

Mrs Jones commented

In principle I support medium density housing in well serviced communities like Rosanna, however I question the merit of the proposed development at 28 Millicent St, primarily as the proposed unit density departs from the existing neighbourhood character.

The dispensation requested for visitor parking is poorly justified, citing proximity to public transport. Refer the development at 51-55 McNamara St, Macleod, which is immediately opposite a train station: this invariably has around 4-6 cars parked outside on the street, forcing northbound traffic into the southbound lane while obscurity oncoming traffic at a bend in the road. Clearly in this example, the parking provided on site (whether permanent or temporary) was insufficient and did not anticipate the needs of the residents who live there.
On-street parking is a concern if there is insufficient parking available on site. Victorian Road Rules state that a minimum distance of 3 metres should be left between vehicles on either side of the street, in order to allow traffic to pass through with sufficient clearance. This is especially important in order to allow emergency vehicles to pass through when required.

The development proposes refrigerated cooling systems and water tanks but it is not clear where any associated equipment, including condensers and pumps (if provided), are located in order to assess the noise impact on surrounding noise sensitive receivers.

The development’s availability of solar access to north facing windows (an energy efficiency objective) appears to be limited given that only two of the six units actually have any north facing windows (excluding windows to toilets).
