    Matt commented

    The proposed development is outside of the height restrictions of this lot and the current approved eight levels which were known to the buyer at the time of purchase.

    These height and level restrictions were also taken into account by many Magnoli residents when purchasing their dream apartments.

    Height restrictions should be adhered to and the proposal should be rejected until such time that it does.

    Totally unwarranted and not wanted, existing established .Chirnside Park business premises already built are struggling to remain open and be financially viable.

  4. In Viveash WA on “Noise Wall” at Lot 195 Harford Avenue Viveash WA 6056:

    Patrick Irwin commented

    Puzzled as to what a noise wall is, and why it is required? The brickworks is to close, I understand, and it would be the noise source at present I assume.
    Is the noise wall to keep out the sound of bulldozers as they knock down the trees providing a ribbon of green to the East of the site?
    Why is this wall to cost zero? As the BCITF and Building Permit fees are based on the value of the Works this is pertinent.
    There are no drawings available on Planning Alerts.

    Dear Councillors
    The understanding from the DA is that this iconic tree will be protectes. Already, large branches have been cut away.
    Please do not pass this new application. The tree is important to the character of the street and environment.
    The owners had agreed to protect the tree and should maintain their promise.
    This matter needs urgent attention.
    Thank you

  7. In Carrum VIC on “Externally paint a...” at 506 Station Street, Carrum, VIC:

    Daniel commented

    This premise was painted over prior to 6/12/20. In painting over it prior to getting a permit, they changed the colour from an area appropriate sandy yellow, to the eye sore turquoise, we see now, which is not befitting of such a historical site.
    They also painted over a large mural of Carrum icon, Norm Stephens, without consultation. The mural, which was crowd funded, served as community tribute to the generations long dedication and sacrifice Norm has given to his beloved Carrum.
    It is my hope that Kingston City Council take appropriate action against the responsible party, including getting the mural of Norm repainted.

    Brooke commented

    I believe this is a great opportunity to those in certain circumstances - just because a person or family is lacking in financial stability, does not mean they are more likely to commit crime.

    There is a rigorous and thorough process for selection of people to be accepted into boarding houses.

  9. In Maroubra NSW on “Integrated development for...” at 486 Malabar Road Maroubra NSW 2035:

    David Murphy commented

    This increase from 4 units to 9 units in this development will compound the existing parking issue surrounding the area. Even with underground parking, this development does not factor in units with more than 1 car or the increased parking and traffic from their guests.
    The retirement village development at 481-499 Malabar Road already has inadequate parking solutions which will dramatically increase the parking and traffic on the street - allowing this 486 Malabar Road development in it's current state will only make things worse for all local residents. Please consider limiting this development to 4-6 units with the same underground parking solutions they currently have to mitigate this.
    Many thanks

    Please go check out Miamax Place (the next road over) this road is full of dual occupancy property's and the road is far too thin with not enough parking. We are building our family home on Pierro Place and I dont want to see this road go the same way as it will suffer the same problems. Please don't allow any more dual occupancy properties on this road.

  16. In Maroubra NSW on “Integrated development for...” at 486 Malabar Road Maroubra NSW 2035:

    Danielle Forrest commented

    I have real concerns about this development. The most pressing is the impact on parking & traffic long term. That's already going to be much more of an issue when the huge development at 481-499 Malabar Road is complete - which doesn't have enough parking to cater for residents, staff and visitors.
    I acknowledge that there is parking included in the 486 Malabar Road plans, but there is always more needed than provided in a residential building.
    With 2 schools, not enough street parking now & significant traffic issues in the warmer months due to our proximity to the beach, this will compound the negative effects our neighbourhood expects to see from the 481-499 Malabar Road development.
    I am not anti-development, but we have all seen communities who have been decimated by developers not looking beyond their own block. Please consider restricting this development to the existing number of units rather than allowing for the 9 they are requesting.
    Thanks for your time.

    Brian Borjeson commented

    If this is a concrete pool, rather then removal would it not be better to cut about 750 mm off the walls and place a concrete lid over the pool, connect the building roof stormwater drainage into the "now rainwater storage tank" This water could then be pumped out and used on the gardens, toilets etc (grey water) Just a thought that I have done

    Please help uncrowd the area and consider moving the location of the boarding house to a less dense area. Perhaps North Strathfield or another suburb.

  19. In Palm Beach QLD on “Other Change Material...” at 1293-1299 Gold Coast Highway, Palm Beach QLD 4221:

    I always expected a building would be going onto this site but not one with heights way above the plan restrictions. We expected 8 levels only.

  20. In Caringbah South NSW on “Tree is leaning over house...” at 7B Dudley Avenue Caringbah South NSW 2229:

    John Woods commented

    This tree was the one tree left when they developed this property under council planning.  It is not in a bad position and I don't think the root system had been disturbed during buildind, we live in the street and saw construction.  I object to this tree being removed.  Perhaps they should look at trimming it branches overhaning house.  This tree is magnificent and adds to the neighborhood and is compliant with council regs.

    Firewheel Trees provide a food source for local fauna and would be a source of shade.They are native vegetation and should be preserved .We request that Council rejects this application for the above reasons -perhaps careful pruning could be an option.

    Not the type of business anyone wants operating in the Holdfast Council. The space needs something that attracts tourists to the beachside destination not deter them.

  23. In Rhodes NSW on “Extension to Trading Hours...” at 6 Walker Street, Rhodes NSW 2138:

    Teresa commented

    Ok with McDonalds in Rhodes with normal operating hours but not 24/7 due to noise and increase unnecessary crowds in Rhodes. Also there is also potential increase in road safety hazard with congestion, rubbish, littering, crimes and etc.

  24. In Rhodes NSW on “Demolition of existing site...” at 16 Walker Street, Rhodes NSW 2138:

    Teresa commented

    Boarding houses are great idea however I strongly object to this proposal at 16 Walker Street because we currently do not have sufficient infrastructure in Rhodes to support the increasing population of all the Rhodes especially after the bridge connection with Wentworth Point. (E.g. transport, train, medical facilities etc)
    Rhodes is currently too crowded already.
    Please relocate the proposed boarding house to another suburb within Canada Bay.

    Eva commented

    Maybe boarding houses are good, but right next to the station in the middle of all the new buildings? that's just a very weird location and will make the station area even more dangerous. I would strongly oppose this proposal.

    There's already lately a gang attack. first ever heard of in Rhodes where it's been peaceful and quiet, we've lived in the area for almost a decade now. It's just getting worse with the crowd.

    Try to uncrowd the area please.

    There are plenty of space on the other side of the station!

    Gaurav Bhatia commented

    I oppose this proposal.

    This suburbs quality and level of lifestyle has already taken a huge nosedive with recent developments.
    A boarding house is not in the character of Rhodes, and would add unnecessary security risks which have already shot up. Most recently we had a case of armed carjacking and assault here.

  27. In Bondi Beach NSW on “Modification to alter...” at 1-7 Curlewis Street Bondi Beach NSW 2026:

    Lisa Sherwood commented

    This development is located on a corner block with absolutely no vehicle access and nowhere to stop outside except for via Simpson Street which is a narrow residential street that already suffers from traffic and parking issues.
    It is not an ideal location for such a large development in the first place without adding extra height.
    A Family in the same street had their house collapse into the neighbouring development.
    There are too many approvals granted without looking carefully at the existing area/streetscape.
    Please take into account the already dense residential area before adding more traffic and congestion, particularly where there is little or unsafe access.

  28. In Rhodes NSW on “Demolition of existing site...” at 16 Walker Street, Rhodes NSW 2138:

    Valerie commented

    I agree that there is too much infrastructure around Rhodes area in general and not a lot of road space to match the ongoing infrastructure.

    On the other hand, I don’t disagree with a boarding house in general. I think the disadvantaged should be given a roof over their heads and having a boarding house in areas that are ‘richer’ would benefit society in the long run - an equal world otherwise our city will become even more segregated in terms of socio economic statuses. I also agree that there’s not a lot of services around Rhodes which may hinder those living in the boarding house.

    As long as those in the boarding house are provided with the ongoing support they need and community engagement - not just place them and leave them alone.

    Brenda Harris commented

    I am an advocate for giving people less fortunate a hand up rather than a hand out.
    I strongly believe if done correctly that a boarding house is of benefit yo the community.
    I also think we need a men’s shed.
    In difficult times and residential over development as we have in our community it’s important yo have community garden and men’s meeting place.
    It’s healthy and engaging.
    Community engagement is critical.

  30. In Carrum VIC on “Externally paint a...” at 506 Station Street, Carrum, VIC:

    Lisa Vatta commented

    As a long time resident of Carrum I was appalled and disgusted at the incompetence of the “system” that has a notice presented AFTER the act has been taken out. Painting over a mural that has been a long-standing ICON of Carrum, that is a celebration of this suburb and Norm Stephens’ life.

    My shock at the premises’ alterations over recent years have not been for the best, losing the character and vibrancy that was “3 steps” to a bland property that has no substance and fails to be demonstrative of the character Carrum residents expect to see and retain in their suburb.

    What does Kingston Council propose to do to rectify this deplorable situation?

    Here’s a thought...maybe have the mural reinstated and look at how to revamp the shop area into the beachside, retro character we all appreciate.
