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

Barney Zwartz commented

I have lived on St Elmo Avenue since 1995, and have seen it become much busier and more developed. Glengollan has been a good neighbour, and I know we need more aged care facilities. Even so, I object strenuously to this proposal for the same reason as other commenters above.
It is much too high and would be utterly out of place in a street where no other building comes close.
It includes commercial activities in a protected zone.
St Elmo already suffers access difficulties. Most of the time there are cars parked on opposite sides of the road, necessitating weaving in and out, and with room for only one car at a time. This development could only exacerbate this situation, and maybe also on the much busier Underwood Road.
I suggest Glengollan submit new plans for a single-storey development, which would meet much more acceptance in the wider community.
