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

Neville Sanders commented

Bronwyn, I am the President of Glengollan Village. My original reply was to Barry Magee and he knows me so I did not state my role. The abutting properties were all letter box dropped with the invite to the information session early in the year. All the plans were on display and professional advisers present to answer questions. Quite a number of residents attended. Glengollan Village is a community based not for profit charitable entity that provides Independent Living Units in the Retirement Village, plus nursing care in the Aged Care Facility. We have been operating since1956 on the current site and provide a much valued service to aged persons in the local area. We are proposing to utilize the site at 2-8 St Elmo Avenue to replace our current 90 bed ACF which is nearing the end of its useful life. We are investigating another information session that would need to be via video conference. If that does proceed, we will again letterbox drop the abutting properties. By its very nature, an ACF for 108 residents is a large building and the new site is quite large and will allow Glengollan to continue to serve our local aged community. The car parking requirements are set by planning regulations and naturally our ACF residents do not drive. From the nature of the other comments, I expect they are from local residents. I am the only spokesperson from Glengollan Village. Regards Neville
