In Upper Ferntree Gully VIC on “Development of a Medical...” at 1 Mount View Road, Upper Ferntree Gully VIC 3156:

Patricia Parkerson, you fail to mention that previously it was a one-person clinic, in a vintage weatherboard home, on a property with some lovely trees and friendly native birds, things vital to health and wellbeing. Your proposal is of a 9metre high cheaply-made office block, with 13 doctors, only 19 carparks, that also destroys the trees and bird habitat. It is all concrete and the silly bike-racks are not a substitute for parking that would be stolen from Ferntree Plaza and the Royal Hotel and congest the street. It is not 'nay saying' for residents to want to be healthy and avoid this overdevelopment of an office-block amid beautiful vintage houses. This is an unhealthy development from a developer who does not care about health, otherwise he would propose a smaller clinic with 5 doctors, not 13, and care about the environment by keeping the largest trees and birds and not hurting the neighbourhood for money.
Also to be trying to force this through during lockdown appears legally actionable as it prevents many residents from finding out or being able to protect their own homes.
