In Northcote VIC on “A mixed-use development...” at Building 25 Separation Street Northcote VIC 3070:

Chris Clarke commented

All Darebin residents should be provided with more information including the actual plans and the timeframe for residents objections should be extended because of Covid.
On the face of it the scale of the proposal is totally innappropriate. The existing far smaller tower is already an eyesore overlooking our best central park.
We dont want parks taken over as the private backyards to massive residential towers.
Parts of the park are already bare from high usage.
There is already a shortage of carparking at the Plaza and any parks removed should be replaced.
The landscaping at the Plaza is disgraceful with a lack of trees and large areas of bitumen with no shade. Council needs to encourage the owners to fix up the dilapidated grounds and merge the landscaping with the park - not allow massive overdevelopment.
The planned tower would overlook Santa Maria College girls school and should be opposed by the school and all parents. It will shade the school in winter when sun is needed the most.
