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

Ben Nelson commented

I have the following concerns about the proposed development:
1). An 8 storey development is not in keeping with this neighborhood/family suburb. No other developments in the area exceed 4 storeys.
2). A reduction in the provision of parking is not appropriate. I frequent these shops all week and in the weekends and there is already inadequate parking for people accessing local businesses and parking overflow from this proposed development would likely affect people accessing local businesses as well as impacting on station car parking
3). Student housing is not required in this area, there are more suitable locations closer to university campuses. In addition it would likely mean these are very small/cheap dwellings.
4). This would unfairly impact existing residents in neighboring streets due to overlooking, overshadowing and traffic flow/parking impacts.

5). The overall property prices would be affected and decline in the area due to precedence of over developed multi level complex dwellings and it being student accommodation and lack of parking.

please let’s keep murrumbeena precinct in character and not become overdeveloped like some areas of carnegie now.
