In Ormond VIC on “Partial demolition and...” at 483 North Road Ormond VIC 3204:

Andrew Urban commented

The noise coming from this venue (pre-covid-19 restrictions) is loud and reaches my house which is two streets away. I can only imagine how loud it is for residents closer to the venue. They have live bands playing which is the main reason for the noise and it attracts a lot of patrons from around Melbourne. However, the area behind 483 North Rd Ormond is completely residential and making noise up to 3am in the morning is my main concern. In my opinion, the venue should be forbidden from operating as a live venue at all at this location - disturbing the peace of the local residents for their own selfish gains. I understand this would be a problem for their business model but well bad luck - they need to move to more industrial area. If I started operating my chain saw at 11 pm at night, I'm sure that I would be in trouble with neighbours, with the law, and with the police. So why should it be different for them. The other problem which I am already experiencing is the decrease in available parking near my house which could further exacerbated with an increase in capacity of this venue. If this proposal were to be accepted with restricted hours of live music, then what provision is there for this to be parking availability - perhaps increased car parking at Ormond Station (State Government approval) and residential parking permits elsewhere in the immediate area. In summary, this venue has been operating for some time and is doing quite well up until now. Expansion of the venue appears to be motivated by greed at the expense of the neighbouring community.
