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

Leigh-Ann Billingham commented

I object to this planning application based on it being its significant size as well as impacts to traffic, overshadowing of surrounding residential properties and the impact it will have on small businesses that are part of the character of this area.

Currently there is a Bunnings Brunswick, Bunnings Coburg, Bunnings Northland, Bunnings Fairfield. The need for another Bunnings in such short proximity in relations to their other locations will impact the surrounding businesses and traffic while at the same time will not be fulfilling the need of trade and hardware goods that the local community is unable to access in its nearby locations.

The proposed signage at Glenlyon and Lygon Street will also be an eyesore and out of character of this area. The traffic congestion that will occur with 2 entry points on Glenlyon St and 1 exit via Pitt St will make unsafe areas for bicycles as will as vehicles loading any large hardware goods.

The overshadowing will be most impactful in the morning added with increased traffic this area would be a dark and busy area for residents in both 1 storey and 4 storey apartments.

This area is home to many small businesses which is a vital part of this community’s personality. This development would out of character and completely unnecessary. Please listen to the community of Moreland and deny this proposed development.

Thank you,
