    Tony wrote to local councillor Felicity Sinfield

    Kerri and Mae, are you aware that Camberwell activist and resident Mary Drost and her friends at BRAG (Boroondara Residents Action Group) have been campaigning Council and the State Government ministers for well over 10 years. Had the Liberals had won the election last year Mary had direct communications to David Davis. The current minister for planning pretty much does what he wants and may have a negative view of those living in the leafy council of Boroondara. A few years ago I think it was Cr Jim Parke wrote a letter to all Boroondara households explaining that council had very little say in stopping developments and demolishing building and houses due to State laws. That letter may still be online and worth reading

    Damian commented

    I live alongside this property and hope that when the demolition and earthworks start in the development of this property into streets and housing lots that the developers actually make an effort to stop the spread of fireants that are prolific on the properties land in its current state. Myself and many neighbours have fireants from the development of the estate that we live in and transformation of this place will spread the footprint of these ants into new areas where the excess earth is moved to.

    Good afternoon Damian,

    Council is receipt of your emailed concerns to Councillor Lutton regarding the approved development upon 32 Berzins Court potentially spreading of fire ants.

    Council engineering and Construction Taskforce officers on Monday this week met with the developers and contractors on this property and undertook a ‘pre start meeting’ associated with the approved engineering plans to develop this property.

    I can confirm that at this time qualified consultants were undertaking a flora and fauna survey of the premises which includes a coordinated fire ant inspection.

    The contractors have a standard operating procedure relating to fire ant management approved by Biosecurity Queensland which is brought into effect upon the locating of a nest.

    We have on the basis of your reported concerns, referred this matter to Biosecurity Queensland who may look into this smatter also.

    Construction Taskforce officers and engineering officers will be proactively monitoring the site throughout the works driving quality development practices.

    Should you have further inquiry regarding this matter, please contact me directly to discuss.

    To Central Coast Council
    No mobile phone tower in or near Alan Davidson oval, Wyoming.
    I live close to Alan Davidson Oval and I am definitely against having a mobile phone tower being installed. It is absolutely ridiculous to have a mobile phone tower in such close proximity of the sports playing field and children's play ground and residential area.
    I have concerns about the health risks and the environmental impact this tower will bring.
    I surely don't want to wake up every day to seeing and ugly mobile phone tower. A lot of money and time has been spent to have Alan Davidson Oval looking so nice why do you want to destroy this?
    Why am I hearing about this from a flyer put in my letterbox by a concerned local and not from the council or Optus? Are you trying to hide this from the locals so we won't have a chance to be heard and argue against this?
    I know big businesses like to make lots of money regardless but come on Optus and Central Coast Council isn't peoples lives more important than money.
    My mobile phone signal is extremely poor but I would rather do without a signal than the effects of such a tower.
    Thank you for taking the time to read my say on this matter.

  18. In Redland Bay QLD on “Building Format Multiple...” at 21-43 Salisbury Street, Redland Bay, QLD:

    Verena & John McGowan commented

    Cluster housing is well established in Salisbury St (2019). It is not unusual for both sides of Salisbury St to be used for over flow parking from this development.
    The Redlands Council have the opportunity now to get the balance of high density living right. It is inevitable that the foreshore will be developed along the lines of Redcliffe.
    I appreciate that there is little profit in open space, but as we become more densely crowded, this space becomes more precious.
    Do not let greed get in the way of good planning.

  19. In Alphington VIC on “Mixed Use development,...” at 582 Heidelberg Rd Alphington VIC 3078:

    Ian Hammet wrote to local councillor Danae Bosler

    A recent survey showed local residents are overwhelmingly opposed to plans for a 13 storey building on the corner of Coate Avenue. Should the application be approved, it will:
    1. Create a building with a height and housing density totally inappropriate for a quiet suburban street and until recently a serene urban environment.
    2. Cast a permanent shadow over homes that surround the development.
    3. Double the number of cars in a street that is already not coping with the demand for car parking.
    4. Place even greater strain on a transport system already inadequate and destined to become worse with Alphington's population doubling over the next 3 years.

  20. In Warradale SA on “Land division, 1 into 3” at 36 Gardiner Avenue Warradale, SA:

    Sean Houlahan commented

    I have a lot to lose due to being on this developments southern boundary and being directly overshadowed. I have been into council planning and planning SA and the decision authority is 100 % in the councils hands, as categorised by planning SA development number 100/D093/18. The council has the plans and authorise or not the design and placement of the three two storey dwellings. They have already much to my dismay gone outside their own side setback minimum required distance of three metres on a southern boundary if a building is 3-6 metres tall. It even requires additional setback equal to any height above six metres but they can’t tell me that at council planning as it would be unethical. I did get out of someone that they have already been allowed to overcome the minimum setback and get an exemption which allows them to have the two storey walls at a 2.7 m setback and carport on the fence. We must be lucky to have a council with such flexible requirements to accomodate these developers.

  21. In Teralba NSW on “Medical Centre” at 59 William Street Teralba NSW 2284:

    Davies commented

    We had a medical centre in teralba years ago and it closed down to make way for one in woodrising , both of which have closed . This is amongst residential houses regardless of what the ridiculous zoning says . There is no where for the extra cars , being out the front of a primary school .if we need a medical centre this bad , put it in the Main Street where the rest of the commercial buildings are . Ridiculous idea!!!!

  22. In Melrose Park NSW on “Home business - Tattoo...” at 31 Cobham Ave Melrose Park NSW 2114:

    Chris Rudolph commented

    I have read all of the objections to this application and found that most of them aren't supported as what they are stating are just not true. Firstly, the comments on this area being a quiet residential street are dillusional and inaccurate. It is in fact a very busy main street through melrose park. I play Oztag at the meadowbank fields multiple times a week and there are constant revheads going through the streets and people speeding, why do you think there are always HWP in this area?

    Another factor was the lack of parking there already is. I'm not sure if any of these people have been to a tattoo parlour before but people getting tattoos often take public transport. Also, at most there is like 3 people in the parlour getting tattoos, so this whole problem of a sudden influx of parking requirements is just plain wrong.

    Comments on the location for a tattoo shop being unsuitable is a bit of a reach as well, what depicts where a tattoo shop should be? They don't always have huge neons lights buzzing all night long, in fact sometimes, it's possible for a tattoo shop to just be in someones home, tucked away in their spare room. Apparently the prices of the houses will go down as well, because a tattoo shop is in the neighbourhood? Well, The people buying your houses are young people that want or accept tattoos, so I'm not sure where the logic in that is.

    Gangs. GANGS. Come on people, you don't have to be in a gang or affiliated with gangs to own a BUSINESS. I wonder if the applicants opened a mechanic shop the opposers would think they are in a gang because they watched Fast and Furious.

    So, Tattoo shop is no different to opening a corner shop business, in fact it would have less traffic and noise pollution than a convenience store.

    Deborah Prosser commented

    I agree with the previous comments and dismay if mine and the others will even be considered, the amount of rampant development without the above considerations don't stop.
    HOW CAN WE BE HEARD AND REDIRECT THE WAY THINGS ARE GOING!!!
    Personally I don't think this is the place as it doesn't seem to work. Local living citizens seem to be gazumpted by profit driven developers constantly and we don't have the money or time to object to the ever popping up applications.
    I am starting to believe that even when Old South Head Rd will be totally grid locked one morning, which I believe is not far off...no one on council will care....and the applications for developments will continue to be passed.
    I think there are many like myself, people in dismay with what is happening to this area that many of us love and some have lived in all our lives.....maybe its about time to band together and try to change not just every new application which seems to happen nearly daily, but to eradicate a system that is not taking into account the fundamental needs of the residents that already are living here.

  25. In Reservoir VIC on “Proposed removal of...” at 26 Legh Street Reservoir VIC 3073:

    Concerned Resident commented

    I would like to object to the removal of this covenant with out see the plans.
    To my understanding removing the covenant would allow for multiple dwellings on the one property. In all of Legh Street and surrounding area there is only one dwelling per property.
    If the development was to be approved I will be leaving the area as it will end up congested like Leamington St towards High St end.

    It is unexcitable that Onkaparinga council lately even consider application of removal native regulated and significant trees to satisfy land developers. It needs to be stop ASAP before we make leafy Flagstaff Hill a concrete jungle.

  27. In Birchgrove NSW on “Removal of private tree in...” at 87 Phillip Street Birchgrove NSW 2041:

    Michael Johnson commented

    I accept that dying/dangerous trees need to be felled. However, this DA should require that the applicant:

    1. replace every tree felled with a suitable new tree
    2. be required to produce evidence over time (6 months, 1 year) to prove the new tree/trees have been nurtured to maturity.

    We ratepayers are fed up with the number of trees being cut down on the peninsula. This is an election issue.

    Thank you

    ichael Hilton Smethurst commented

    Hi I live at 138 Chinderah Bay Drive and really don't want the Pub moving closer to my Property as where the Pub is now we still get a lot of noise from the bands they have on weekends and according to development the Pub is moving closer to my Property and that is unacceptable owing to the noise factor

  30. In Bondi Beach NSW on “Private - Alterations and...” at 48 Hall Street Bondi Beach NSW 2026:

    Paul Paech commented

    While pleased to see the current usage of this premises being retained, there is real concern that the plans give no detail of the replacement of the air-conditioning and refrigeration units attached to the rear wall of the premises.
    These are in direct line of hearing of a number of residential properties, including the house immediately adjacent at 21 Chambers Avenue which is only a meter or so from these large motors.
    The previous installation was encased in acoustic baffles to reduce the noise, and Council is asked to investigate whether the noise output from these replacement units meet Council's noise controls.
