Need action at 213
Do you remember this one? Yes we have been here before – but no matter we will be again. This development slipped through when we only had three objections – well now the developer wants more, and more.
DEVELOPMENT NUMBER: PLP/2012/48
DEVELOPER: T G Clark
SITE: 213 Fussell Street
APPLICATION: Development of 2 Dwellings and 2 lot subdivision
OBJECTIONS DUE: 19th March 2012
Doesn’t sound too bad does it? In fact some of you may have walked or driven past and thought “mmm two, not much we can do”. But in fact there is. The major reason this block in a larger development is the size it currently is, is due to residents concerns over development.
The developer stated that the blocks on the edge of the larger development would stay the same size to protect neighbourhood character. Read: so they could get away with tiny blocks in the interior of the development (which VCAT handed to them). Now they want to further subdivide the outside blocks that protect neighbourhood character.
Please go and have a look at the permit with the larger development in mind, because you can be sure that the larger development that sits beside it is not mentioned in the application.
Stay vigilant becasue the only people who will remember are the residents…
