Dawn Waight commented

MPS/2020/260 The T.T.M. Consulting Vic. Pty. Ltd.'s traffic impact report details were calculated at Bunnings Warehouse 266 Darebin Road Fairfield (not a Moreland municipality) on Saturday 3rd of August and only for one hour 12pm to 1pm not traffic going along Glenlyon Road.Brunswick and peak periods. They were calibrated during stage 3, two days before stage 4 Covid-19 times .By the way the default speed limit along Glenlyon Road is 50 not 60 kph. Darebin Road warehouse is opposite a park and not a residential area but an industrial area Glenlyon Road is residential. Traffic reports should be on Glenlyon Road. I am sure Police just down the road in Dawson st who frequently use Glenlyon Road to get to the city and local surrounds with their cars and booze buses plus other vehicles, fire engines, ambulances would not like to compete with 19 metre semi trailers and 12.5 metre rigid trucks this proposal is asking to do. As far as traffic congestion, anyone who has tried to make a right hand turn from the Coles Service Station in Glenlyon Road will tell you don't do this unless you have a death wish and this proposal is only a few doors away from the Service Station. Locals will tell you the practicalities of cars travelling west down Glenlyon Road from Lygon Street to try to turning right into Bunnings will cause a bank up of traffic all the way back to the intersection of Glenlyon Road and Lygon Street and may be further back. This traffic congestion already happens at Glenlyon Road and Minnie Street just 8 houses from this site. This is a totally inappropriate development in a residential area. The previous businesses did not have as much traffic continually going through. 250 car parks does not mean 250 cars a day. Calculate 200 cars X 8 hours equals an additional 1600 cars each day along Glenlyon Road more when Bunnings open late! Cars will be constantly going in and out at least every 30 to 60 minutes. I don't see too many people riding their bikes, walking or catching a bus (anyway bus no 506 only go to 9 Monday to Friday, 6pm Saturday and does not run Sunday. Quite a lot of purchases require a car. By widening the existing cross overs along Glenlyon Road residents are loosing parking places. Residents have invested their future in their properties expecting a much quieter and safer life on their local road and streets. They are financially bound to their homes that they thought they would live in for a long time. There should be strict adherence to the Moreland City Council General Laws of 2018 in regard to outer hours deliveries and commercial rubbish. Please Moreland Council Planning Department think twice before allowing this.
