In Ferntree Gully VIC on “Building and works to...” at 2-8 St Elmo Avenue, Ferntree Gully VIC 3156:

Victor,
I also live on Underwood road. I viewed the plans of the proposed aged care home and was taken aback by the size of the building especially the height. One of the main reasons I live in Ferntree Gully is because I thought the overlay here was protected from this type of building. I'm concerned about the lack of privacy with windows and balconies looking into backyards, the loss of trees. The traffic will also cause a lot of congestion. I believe that the building needs to blend into the area and not dominate it, which this building will. I hope that the planner's take into consideration the concerns of the people in the area who this impacts on.
