In Murrumbeena VIC on “The proposed development...” at 430-434 Neerim Road Murrumbeena VIC 3163:

I frequently visit this spot on weekends already have trouble parking.
I live in Malvern East with student accommodation very close. First hand experience of impact to area is negative.
Firstly, the assumption that students don’t drive is completely false. We have students leaving cars parked for weeks on end. (to the point recent roadworks were effected because cars do not move & bike lane still not fully painted months later)
They will park in front of your driveway with little regard or care.
Secondly, the area has become like a slum, with the students not collecting mail, therefore rubbish litters the street. They empty their rubbish from their cars constantly.
Their old computers & furniture is constantly dumped in front of our house.

Surely there is enough “cheap” apartments catering to students and new arrivals?ie.Carnegie, Caulfield, Glen Huntley and parts of Malvern East. Our lovely shopping has been destroyed. “Massage parlours” & Chinese stores selling vitamins dominating.

Murrumbeena should be protected. It’s has just about recovered from sky rail..
It will completely loose all charm if this tower of student accommodation is allowed.
