    Dena Maddick commented

    Again another application for more noise,food,drink,people, and traffic chaos! And absolutely no regard for local residents.Shame that we do not have any influence on the City Council's Planning decisions...fait accompli by the time the planning alert occurs.

  2. In Lilydale VIC on “Remove a restrictive...” at 61-63 Eucalypt Drive, Lilydale VIC 3140:

    Claire Ann Creasy commented

    I object to the removal of any covenant and believe this application should be denied. Everyone that has bought a property on Eucalypt Drive were well aware of the covenants and if they want something different they should move elsewhere. Many of us bought our properties because we felt protected by the covenants.

    Sunny commented

    It looks like this house has a tree that needs to be spared in the construction of a secondary dwelling. Please save the tree and enjoy the benefits of shade, bird life and added value to the property.

    Ooooooh look more flop houses!
    What a surprise Penrith council! You should be Ashamed of yourselves!
    Thinking of know one but greedy developers!

    Great development. Good for Werrington growth.

  6. In Broadview SA on “Two, Two Storey Detached...” at 4 Bridges Street Broadview SA 5083:

    Corinne Dalgas commented

    The minimum lot area for detached dwellings in this area is 350m2. If this minimum area requirement cannot be met, as I believe is the case in this situation, detached dwellings should not be permitted.

  7. In Holmview QLD on “Operational Works relating...” at Lot 902 Wuraga Road Holmview 4207, QLD:

    Lincoln Booker commented

    The amount of traffic on Gardiner/Wuraga roads is disgusting, no thought by council in approving these new estates with the infrastructure, we live in the Vale estate on Ridgevale Bvd of Gardiner road and it is a race track and at times getting onto Gardiner road is near impossible especially at peak times. Logan City Council have no regard for the residents it is all about rates revenue.

  8. In Merrylands NSW on “Construction Certificates -...” at 51 Davison Street, Merrylands NSW 2160:

    Sarah Jegison commented

    Do we really need more duplexes in the street? Their is an oversupply of them in the area, so all we get are scum renting them out. They use their garages as another lounge room and then have all their cars parking along the street. The street is already congested with cars that are either dumped or not registered, or cars not even belonging to those that live on the street. Council needs to stop these duplexes.

    Kat Chalker commented

    Who don't you put at along the river or in Jordan Springs or Glenmore Park.. Build them further apart so one suburb doesn't have to turn into a ghetto..
    I do not support Kingswood being turned into a boarding house Ghetto.

    Ashleigh commented

    I’m sure Penrith council already receives enough complaints about how bad kingswood is!!! This is honestly just horrible. The area is already suffering enough, with families, women and children scared for their property to be stolen, damaged or even become a victim of domestic violence in this area, WE DO NOT NEED MORE OF THIS!! Take it somewhere else, spread the love. It is so dangerous to put more vulnerable/recovering people into an area where repeated patterns could return or worsen. The police already visit my street at least 5 nights out of the week. It would be like the blind leading the blind or a covid cluster growing bigger and out of control. Do not do this!!!!

  11. In Kingsford NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 87 Middle Street Kingsford NSW 2032:

    Michael Wright commented

    As acknowledged previously by others this application doesn't meet minimum car parking standards but that is just the least of the problems with this application.
    Randwick LGA has too many boarding houses already. I think there are 4-5 active in the last 6months including one on the corner of Middle St & Botany St. There literally is no need for them especially in the post COVID world. Please Randwick council deny this application and encourage the developers to put in suitable accommodation for residents which encourage families, frontline works and suit stays longer than 3month uni terms.
    Such as a small colletion of 2-3 bedroom units or a group of townhouses

  12. In North Tivoli QLD on “Minor Change - Material...” at 540-604 Warrego Highway, North Tivoli QLD 4305:

    Louise shepherd commented

    The stench coming from that area near the round about at Tivoli is disgusting it has now become more common and stronger and can permeate through the house. Its hard to describe the smells that come from there. Sometimes it smells like dead animal and sometimes its a chemical or fertilizer smell. Its so strong and its happening more frequently now. This should not be allowed in a residential area. I am concerned for our health and the health of our environment.

    Wayne kenyon commented

    The stench coming from Candy Soil or Eco Growth area near round about at Tivoli down from Sapars is disgusting it has now become unbearable in the house due to the smell. Its hard to describe the smells that come from there. Sometimes it smells like dead animal and sometimes its a chemical or fertilizer smell. Its so strong and its happening more frequently now. This should not be allowed in a residential area. I am in the shopping centre area and its a very strong smell so I dont know how the people in the shippung centre manage to handle this dreadful smell all the time trying to run a business.

  14. In Northcote VIC on “Forty (40) Lot Subdivision...” at 231 St Georges Road Northcote VIC 3070:

    Liz Schroeder commented

    Please ensure that onsite parking requirements are met.

    Developers claim it is not necessary to meet current requirements in order to minimise their costs, but residents in those areas pay the price because those who buy into those developments have cars they then use on street parking for.

    It makes tight parking situations even worse - it doesn’t stimulate a reduction in car ownership.

    If you want to see an example of the absolute nightmare the failure to provide adequate off street parking creates, try driving along Gadd Street between Leinster Grove and St George’s Road after 6 pm or on the weekends - there are so many cars parked on the street that only one car at a time can drive through.

    Great outcome for developers, and an awful situation for everyone else.

    Please look after the interests of all residents rather than developers who just want to maximise their profits.

  15. In Boronia VIC on “Development of the land for...” at 182 Boronia Road, Boronia VIC 3155:

    Neville Sanders commented

    Not a bad design for a corner site. 6 larger 3 bedroom townhouses with direct driveway access is much better than cramming apartments on to this site.

  16. In Kingswood NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 27 Park Avenue, Kingswood NSW 2747:

    Jo Ingle commented

    The roads, our hospital & schools are already suffering.
    Kingswood needs to be cleaned up.
    Building a boarding house in that area is just asking for trouble.
    Please think about the residents of Penrith instead of your pockets.

    Another oversized development.

    Great to see a sensible development taking place. What’s the ratio 1 in 10?

  19. In Bondi Beach NSW on “Remove one (1) Canary...” at 1/301 Old South Head Road Bondi Beach NSW 2026:

    Nicolette Boaz commented

    This eucalyptus is fully grown and home to much wildlife. There needs to be a VERY good reason to remove a beautiful perfectly healthy tree apart from not liking leaves on your perfect front lawn. Removing this tree would be senseless sanctioned environmental vandalism.

  20. In Boronia VIC on “Development of the land for...” at 182 Boronia Road, Boronia VIC 3155:

    Katie Brown commented

    Please advise why "waiver of carparking requirements" is happening in most redevelopments. Why are you turning streets into car parks?

  21. In Gladesville NSW on “Construction of a mixed use...” at 287-295 Victoria Rd Gladesville NSW 2111:

    Sharon Whitbourn commented

    It seems pointless even voicing an opinion on these developments. The land owners seek to maximise profit at the expense of amenity and good design. Council will no doubt, as precedents indicate, approve another soulless concrete set of boxes, urged on by state government to maximise residential construction along the public transport corridors. There was an opportunity before all this main road apartment/commercial applications began, to demand good design and integrated green and open space into the new streetscape but that was lost. How sad. We could have had suburban design to be proud of but unfortunately for all, what now exists is utilitarian, pokey, ugly and generally unpleasant to be around.....and largely, empty.

  23. In Bongaree QLD on “Request to Change (Minor) -...” at 9 Dux Drive, Bongaree QLD 4507:

    Pauline Mahon commented

    Moreton Bay Regional Council prides itself on promoting health and wellbeing for its residents. Bribie Lake does just this. It is a place where people walk their dogs, sometimes twice per day, meet chat and enjoy the lake and it surrounds. Is it worth taking this away FOR GOOD just for the sake of a few more houses? Please consider carefully.

  24. In Bentleigh East VIC on “Construction of a three...” at 6 Bevis Street Bentleigh East VIC 3165:

    Tammy Kricheli commented

    Dear Neighbours,
    Please help us to fight again and again to keep our tranquilities and life quality that everyone of you achieved in many many years of hard working.

    We can not allow a developer that would like to cash in and leave the chaos to us

    Please have your say to council

    Thank you

  25. In Gladesville NSW on “Construction of a mixed use...” at 287-295 Victoria Rd Gladesville NSW 2111:

    Bridgette Pace commented

    I do not disagree with any of the comments that have been made above and, in fact, agree with all that has been said.

    However, I cannot understand why council is so proud that it has stopped potential villas and elegant manor houses (only 2 levels and maybe 4 units) being approved as it considers them inappropriate for the area; yet, it has the temerity to approve such poorly designed high rises which have plagued and destroyed the Gladesville area.

    If council spent more time demanding decent architectural designs for ALL of its buildings and allowed the smaller dwellings to be built then the area would not be so horribly congested and would accommodate both older and smaller households. We have enough McMansions as it is and very little smaller homes available. Not everyone wants to live in big unit developments or in McMansions.

    More than anything, I think architectural merit and pride in design is very much missing in what is being built to date particularly in unit developments. Is this the fault of the Council which does not appreciate good design or is it the building designers - or both?

  26. In Greenacre NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 48 Shellcote Road, Greenacre NSW 2190:

    Sara commented

    Stop approving these. We don't want more duplexes. Sick of wannabe developers buying properties to demolish and put a cheaply built duplexes on there. We have an oversupply of duplexes in Greenacre and they aren't attractive for the street.

  27. In Kingswood NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 27 Park Avenue, Kingswood NSW 2747:

    Melanie commented

    I object to this, this makes me feel unsafe. It’s bad enough walking around the area/to the station at the moment past those apartment blocks near the station. I’d much rather have townhouses built that families and hard workers that need affordable homes can buy

  28. In Burleigh Heads QLD on “Material Change of Use...” at 16 Hibiscus Haven, Burleigh Heads QLD 4220:

    Graham Wand commented

    Totally unnecessary and will add to traffic chaos and unsociable behaviour late at night in a largely residential suburb. There are already plenty of eating and drinking establishments to service the draw area so the GCCC Planning Department need to take a wider look at the requirements for a successful living environment for the residents of this area.

  29. In Bondi Beach NSW on “Remove one (1) Canary...” at 1/301 Old South Head Road Bondi Beach NSW 2026:

    Jack Lowenstein commented

    While reasons are given for removal of the canary palm and the rubber tree, none is given for the removal of the eucalyptus. This suggests that there is no case for the latter. I am also skeptical of the case cited for the palm destruction. These are not trees with the kind of roots, let alone branches that tend to cause structural problems. I understand the issues with the rubber tree.

    Noooooo more please!!! Kingswood needs to be improved not being dragged out.
