In East Launceston TAS on “Residential - Demolish...” at 14-16 St Georges Square East Launceston TAS 7250:

Donald Cameron commented

This type of opportunistic approach devalues the neighbourhood by diminishing the amenity values. So called "infill" removes gardens and green spaces, increases population density, produces tiny lots with little if any gardens, often attracts cheaper rents which often bring associated problems, the only beneficiary is the developer who makes a quick buck, whilst all around pay for the rest of the lives.

I have seen numerous examples of this behaviour, and see nothing but rubbish. Furthermore I have seen single storey houses approved to become 2 storey houses, with longtime neighbours shaded and views blocked, powerless to avoid the development which diminishes their amenity and devalues their asset.

When will the LCC see reason?
See what is reasonable, and what is unreasonable...
