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

Pete commented

We’re residents of St Elmo Avenue and are very concerned about the volume of traffic the development would bring to the area. Already is there an issue with the number of cars parked on St Elmo Avenue, mostly due to the number of units in the area with inadequate parking, no parking on Underwood road and Glengollan visitors and residents. Living at the far end of the street we face the battle of dodging these cars which are parked on both sides of the street. The fire brigade has already flagged this hazard to all residents and given notice to report all illegal parking in the street. Adding that many residents, plus staff and visitors to this would cause great traffic and parking issues. I don’t believe the street can handle this growth.

There’s also an issue with footpath access There’s only footpaths on one side of the road which are not flat enough already for the elderly to use. So they often opt to use the road instead. Clearly unsafe

Has there been an environmental impact statement issued on this development? How many native trees are in the property that are to come down to build the dwelling. We have been unable to remove one native tree which hangs dangerously over our house and neighbouring property, yet they will likely remove many many trees?

We hope this gets resolved
