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

Brenda Hughes commented

I was lucky to grow up in Ferntree Gully and am a regular visitor to family who live in the underwood road/st Elmo avenue area. Over the years, it has been wonderful to see these areas preserved with the low level housing and treed blocks and streets, This will be lost if inappropriate development pushes into these residential streets and creates precedents for planning approvals of developments of this nature. People live in and visit the hills to embrace and enjoy the natural environment and a bit of a quieter pace of life. Developing high level, intrusive structures removes this ability from the people who live in and visit the area. It is absolutely inappropriate and unfair. Not to mention the traffic and parking issues that arise. You only need to take a drive through the inner suburbs like Richmond, Moonee Ponds and Brunswick to view the impact that these types of developments have had on the residential streets. As a frequent visitor to the area, I strongly object to this development and implore the council to take action to prevent it’s progression.
