In Tyabb VIC on “Development of a...” at 59 Stuart Road Tyabb VIC 3913:

Eric Collier commented

It is unbelievable that the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council can even consider a retirement village abutting an airport and near a rail line carrying heavy freight (with heavy, noisy trains running in the very early hours of the morning). That would be incredibly poor town planning.

The Shire has historically proven itself quite incapable of managing town planning in the vicinity of an airport, and consideration of this planning application should be called in by the State Government.

Further, the road infrastructure in the area would require a significant upgrade to handle the extra traffic. The intersection of Stuart Rd and Mornington-Tyabb Rd will require special treatment (roundabout or traffic lights) to prevent long lines of traffic banking up in Stuart Rd - and the developer should be required to pay for that, because the Shire ratepayers should not be expected to subsidise developers.

The proposed development will change the village character of Tyabb, and is totally unsuited to this area. The proposal must therefore be rejected.
