In Brunswick VIC on “Use of the land for trade...” at 145 Glenlyon Road, Brunswick VIC 3056:

Ricardo Fernandez Carrascal commented

I strongly object to the development of another bunnings store in a residential area.
100% agree with Sarah's comments, and I think many others would agree too;
1. During normal times, Glenlyon Rd is so congested during peak hour that cars are banked up several blocks. Adding to this is inappropriate in a residential area.
2. The traffic impact report was done during Covid times, and outside peak hours. This gives a result that has very limited bearing on reality.
3. There is a Bunnings in Sydney Rd, with adequate parking facilities, which is only ten minutes walk from this proposed location.
4. Parking spots in neighbouring residential streets are so already full that residents frequently have to park half a street away from their home. This is getting worse over recent years, not better. Despite allocating parking, it is unreasonable to presume that all patrons will use it in preference to residential streets.
5. Articulated vehicles typically use more than one lane to turn. This risks blocking traffic, and risks more collisions.
6. The impact on small businesses around the area will be catastrophic
