In Coburg VIC on “Demolition of an existing...” at 90 Sydney Road, Coburg VIC 3058:

Emeritus Professor Alexander Grishin AM commented

This planning permit, MPS/2011/319/B, should not be approved for 3 reasons.
1) It is a case of gross over-development with a six storey building + basement with major retail development and 37 units. This is too dense for the area available.
2) The failure to meet even the basic minimum requirements for parking reflects this over-development. With only 23 parking spaces provided for the accommodation built and totally inadequate parking for the commercial development will force people to park in the street in this already dangerously congested part of Sydney Road in Coburg. As a resident, I am aware of the present traffic flow, this over-development will potentially lead to disaster with a threat to the safety of children and the elderly who presently frequent this area.
3) This over-development is completely out of character with the neighbourhood and will reduce the quality of life in Coburg.
This proposed development should be rejected and an alternative, more people-friendly and environment-friendly proposal sought from the developers.
