    Yes removing native vegetation is not a plus. However if intent on '"so called improvements"" - then please include adult gym park equipment. Otherwise leave as it is -we all need ""unimproved sites"" for habitat and visual nom-uniformity.

  3. In Thurgoona NSW on “Modification of Consent -...” at 52 Fairway Gardens Rd, Thurgoona 2640 NSW:

    Simone Creek commented

    I would feel that 3 townhouses is excessive, as it is situated opposite an intersection on the Main Street of Fairway Gardens Estate.
    The rise and bend on Fairway Gardens drive at that intersection where the majority of traffic cross unmarked sides of the road. This would present a hazard to the possible number of vehicles,entering, living , parking or visiting that address. In close proximity to the future proposal of a roundabout and Day are Centre on what is the primary entry road to the biggest development Estate in the highest developing area in the region.
    This area is also not at the moment a high density housing area which adds to the Estates attraction. I feel that this will impact on the value of neighbouring properties.

    Bharat R commented

    I strongly oppose this project. This should not be built around the Craigieburn suburb. It can be very harmful for the health and well being of the community. They should plan for an environment friendly alternative.

    Dennis Markou commented

    I as a resident of Belmore oppose this the demolition of this building. The building has significant importance to the Art Deco Community in Campsie/ Belmore. I would suggest Council to work with the developer to flourish the design concept to incorporate Campsie/ Belmore's Art Deco history. I would further would like to bring Councils attention to the LSPS plan they have for the area to convert it into a Health Precinct. Council should have a consistent plan if the vision to create a Health Precinct into flourish en.

    I wonder how liveable all theses places will be ?
    And how ‘ walkable ‘ the streets !
    I suspect pretty bad on all fronts .

    Ann commented

    Hi.
    No No No again, this is not zoned for 3 stories to start with, why are so many DA's going in for boarding houses. Why do developers seem to think its Ok to now ruin Bexley, like they have done with Arncliffe, Rockdale and Wolli Creek? We will end up with 3 stories all the way to Hurstville it not OK

    Peter commented

    We object to this as we are right behind his property and this is not an industrial area so why does he need to have a prime mover there.

  9. In Kilsyth VIC on “Use of an indoor recreation...” at Unit 9/143-145 Canterbury Road, Kilsyth VIC 3137:

    Kim Mckay commented

    Seriously another gym, fitness centre what the hell, that must be about 14 in the exact same area where all citizens in the community is being torture with the thumping noise from them all.

    How is this Yarra Ranges council when did they rezone?

    I reject this and any further so called cover gym's or fitness centre's or recreational facility (NOT).... this is absolutely heinous attacks upon us all...i am going to initiate an investigation into every gym, etc, on that side of Canterbury road and the same block of factory area's. How is a gym, fitness centre come under industrial area?
    What university is doing this? Or involved in these cover up businesses..?

  10. In Albanvale VIC on “Development of the land for...” at 80A Oakwood Road Albanvale, VIC:

    Adam Bunderla commented

    I think this proposal is fantastic, one of the best changes the area will see in my lifetime.
    It will be really great if they could ground the whole powerline from neale road right up to through the new estate and remove the eysore/health hazard that it is. the skyscrapers have to go!
    we need mccann drive to be linked and joined up to rockbank middle road in burnside with a small bridge over the waterway. im sick of driving 10-15 minutes to visit people less than 1km away over the creek.
    this will improve accessibility to both brimbank plaza as well as caroline area springs for all those living in the region.
    to have only taylors road and ballarat road as the only way to caroline springs is badly thought out planning in my oppinion.
    density around the shopping centre should be the priority moving forward.
    a new bus bigger terminal with a safe walking path to it will compliment the new estate and give those in albanvale something to cheer about.

    Kara Duncan commented

    Oh yes that's all we need is removal of MORE native vegetation in this time of climate change. The natural vegetation is more important and needed than ANOTHER recreation area. Why does the vegetation have to be lost and not incorporated into the outdoor recreation???? I say NO to this development.

    I am opposing this project. Why build such facility in the middle of suburbia???

    I opposed this project as it is harmful to the community and environment! Please keep Craigieburn safe!

    Please let everyone be healthy and breathe fresh non toxic air. The feeling of so many of us living close to it gives me a nightmare. There are so many who have an objection like me, but they may not have sources to be heard.

  15. In Annandale NSW on “Upgrade of the central...” at Ningana Housing Collective 105 Annandale Street Annandale NSW 2038:

    Jim Bendfeldt commented

    About bloody time!

    Ever since I first lived at Ningana (1981-87) and again 1997-2000, I have thought that a rooftop recreation area would bring the place together as an intentional community. We had tried similar in the early 1980's with the downstairs gardens and children's playground (cubby house and swing set) and good times were had by everyone. We even hired acoustic bands on our anniversary days, that would play into the evening. Unfortunately, dear old and late Doug Reid went a bit overboard with the gum trees on the southern boundary. Anyway let them be a memorial to Doug.

    I wish you all the best with this venture, hello to everyone, and no I haven't made any donation or gift to councillors or council employees.

    Hasan Tan commented

    This is outrageous! I do not support such a facility. Especially with the lack of communication by the council on its potential effects on our health.

  17. In Craigieburn VIC on “Use and development of a...” at 65 Amaroo Rd Craigieburn VIC 3064:

    Sarah Richmond commented

    I and many of the people living in the Hume area are very much against this incinerator. I believe our health and environment will be greatly impacted if it goes ahead. There has to be a better and safer alternative.

  18. In Craigieburn VIC on “Use and development of a...” at 65 Amaroo Rd Craigieburn VIC 3064:

    Karyn O'Donnell commented

    Please don't destroy the future of our children. We don't want them breathing in this second class air. Our health system can't cope as it is, does it really need more pressure. Do children need more health issues on top of all the allergies, asthma, add, adhd and the like. It's about a change in habit to prevent the waste, not disposing of it in a non environmentally friendly way.

    I agree with everything Sam has mentioned above. This is so true.

  20. In Narre Warren North VIC on “Use and Development of a...” at 280-282 Belgrave-Hallam Road, Narre Warren North, VIC:

    Jane commented

    Looking at the planning application and the capacity of the child care centre do you realise that taking into account the child to staff ratio that at a minimum the centre will need is 23 staff to meet the ratio. This is a conservative estimate.
    Then there are staff at the medical centre.
    40 car parks are possibly not enough.
    Possibly not your concern but after working in child care for many years 24 babies in one room is ludicrous! It all comes down to $$ though not what is best for the children.

  21. In Melbourne VIC on “Change of Use from Bar...” at 313-315 Flinders Lane Melbourne 3000:

    EM Rennie commented

    I am a resident of Bligh Place, which is directly opposite this venue. The music is already very loud and I object to live music at this venue. I also object to any change from bar to nightclub, particularly as that could mean an extension of their liquor licence hours and patron numbers (either by this owner or a future licence owner). I have made complaints regarding noise from this building to the police and Melbourne City Council in the past regarding this venue.
    The venue has noisy patrons outside in summer months and the owners/managers have a poor record in controlling public noise and street disturbances. The residential nature of Bligh Place, stretching back to the 1990s, should be respected.

  22. In Somerville VIC on “The development of four (4)...” at 1146 Frankston Flinders Road, Somerville, VIC:

    Katrina Whetton commented

    I don't live in Somerville but I drive past this wonderful historic home every week for work and marvel at how beautiful it is. All it needs is a bit of TLC, heck I would volunteer to paint it for free as I'm a qualified painter and decorator.
    I see visions of it being restored to it's original beauty and perhaps a community hub of sorts. If it were to be demolished for units to be built that would be absolutely heartbreaking. Save Somerville History !!!

  23. In Knoxfield VIC on “The construction of eight...” at 48 Kathryn Road, Knoxfield VIC 3180:

    Kane commented

    I am concerned about the plan and how it is going to affect the beautiful plants on the land, the population density as well as my privacy of my backyard at 43 David Street Knox

  24. In Murrumbeena VIC on “The proposed development...” at 430-434 Neerim Road Murrumbeena VIC 3163:

    Sam commented

    I frequently visit this spot on weekends already have trouble parking.
    I live in Malvern East with student accommodation very close. First hand experience of impact to area is negative.
    Firstly, the assumption that students don’t drive is completely false. We have students leaving cars parked for weeks on end. (to the point recent roadworks were effected because cars do not move & bike lane still not fully painted months later)
    They will park in front of your driveway with little regard or care.
    Secondly, the area has become like a slum, with the students not collecting mail, therefore rubbish litters the street. They empty their rubbish from their cars constantly.
    Their old computers & furniture is constantly dumped in front of our house.

    Surely there is enough “cheap” apartments catering to students and new arrivals?ie.Carnegie, Caulfield, Glen Huntley and parts of Malvern East. Our lovely shopping has been destroyed. “Massage parlours” & Chinese stores selling vitamins dominating.

    Murrumbeena should be protected. It’s has just about recovered from sky rail..
    It will completely loose all charm if this tower of student accommodation is allowed.

  25. In Newport QLD on “Reconfiguring a Lot -...” at Lot 890 Lakeview Promenade Newport QLD 4020:

    Susanne Burton commented

    Stocklands are destroying the area wanting to put in all these high rises. The Retirement Appartemtns were originally only meant to be 4, but was somehow put up to 6. They are any eyesore and don’t fit with the area. Now Stocklands are continuing to want to make changes, shoving in as many dwellings as they can. The streets are narrow houses on top of each other, trying to divide blocks into 6, 4, 2 etc etc. when will it stop. Was walking around the estate the onther day, you already have houses where roofs overlap, houses guttering roughing, heaven forbid if a house caught fire it would just continue into the next house. The council needs to stop this. We moved to the area because there were no high rises, we don’t need another Scarborough or Redcliffe and definitely do not need another Caloundra

    Joe Hogan commented

    I am absolutely horrified this will be so close my home and children’s school. No- ANYONES HOME AND SCHOOL!

    I implore you to reconsider granting approval to have this toxic faculty built at the proposed location. There are other ways our waste can be managed. Incineration in an area so dense in population and so delicate in fauna is NOT the answer.

  27. In Flinders View QLD on “Minor Change - Combined...” at 85 Reif Street Flinders View QLD 4305:

    Ruth Anne Casey commented

    Are you able to tell me which company is building this child care centre as my daughter lives nearby and would like to book her unborn baby in, if possible.

  28. In Murrumbeena VIC on “The proposed development...” at 430-434 Neerim Road Murrumbeena VIC 3163:

    Vivienne T commented

    A building of 9 storeys in Murrumbeena is excessive. It will tower above the new Murrumbeena station. It will be visible from quite a distance. Such a height will encourage infill with neighbournig properties. Four to five storeys is a height that is in keeping with the station height and the more recent developments close to the site.

    Student housing implies a high concentration of residents with small spaces and limitations on amenities. While this may not matter as much for short term residents, how can there be any certainty that will be only students housed there?
    Lack of parking in the proposed development is going to compound the parking difficulties in the shopping precinct. Residents of the recent developments in the shopping precinct already use the station parking for private use. This is very obvious late in the evening and even late Sunday evenings. It is not at all unusual to see twenty or so cars parked to the areas closer to the shops. It would be unlikely to think they are all people who may have a bit to drink and have stayed in town for the night. While many students may not be able to afford cars, it seems the size of the proposed development will guarantee that if only half of the possible student residents have cars, there will be greatly increased pressures on parking in the surrounding streets.

    Anne Sterling commented

    Have lived in arncliffe for over 30 years and love our village. Over that time rockdale council has had little respect for heritage. Please respect the streetscape at least of our beautiful little part of Bayside

    I don't pay my rates for this crap to be built so close to my family home, if this goes ahead I think we should get a rate cut and some sort of compensation paid as home prices will be affected.
