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

Riana commented

I lived in St Elmo Avenue for almost 30 years and I am shocked at the proposed building of a property of this size in this street. From my understanding there are conditions in place to protect such developments in the street.
St Elmo Avenue has been and should remain a location within the area that should be left untouched by such developments which I believe will have a negative impact on the residents who live in the street ( Carmel and Vaughan included). The impact this will have on parking, access, safe exit in the event of a fire ( given the roads dead ends), privacy and potentially opening the floodgates to developers to destroy the existing character of the area is not good enough. A building of this size will have a negative impact on the neighbouring properties ( St Elmo and Underwood Road) and strip the residents of their views of the Dandenong Ranges.
Whilst I understand the need for more aged care services for vulnerable older people, I believe this is not the place.
I have family who have lived in this quiet street for almost 40 years along with many other long term resident's and I stronger object to this development.
