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

Sarah Marrinan long term resident commented

The proposed development violates many of Knox City Council guidelines for housing design and planning for the "Bush Suburban" zone that includes Underwood Rd and St Elmo Ave.

Height - totally against "low scale houses sitting under tree canopy"
Design - "second storeys should be set back from ground floor"
Protection of "green and leafy" character of significant environmental area.
Protection of local Environment
Keeping infrastructure and services away from areas of significant environmental value (including Bush Suburban zone)
The impact on quality of life via privacy, open space, animal and bird life, property values on neighbouring residents is grossly unfair.

This plan needs to be reconsidered at a lower, more appropriate height, more consideration and consultation with neighbours, and less dense buildings that consider environmental impact.

Also future impact on this area. loss of green space, increased traffic, reduced vegetation and animal and birdlife cannot be undone.
