Reid St Brown Hill
This is a letter from Brown Hill resident Louise Jones, it relates to an application at 6 Reid St, to subdivide into 7 lots and build 6 units…
Residents are still entitled to submit objections on this development until the mediation. To date at least 2 objections have been submitted to the Council and we received notice this week that the objections would be considered through the application process and we would be invited to attend an informal mediation meeting if required. This will be a great opportunity for residents to attend and meet with the developer and council reps to discuss the proposal and negotiate everyone’s needs.
The documents supporting the proposal are available from council free of charge and include plans of the current site and plans for the new development. The plans involve removing all of the trees and shrubs in the rear of the block and construction of 6 additional 2 bedroom units (single storey).
I would encourage all nearby residents to get informed about what’s going on to ensure that you fully understand the impacts and concerns, and use this as your opportunity to have a real go at protecting the character of our neighbourhood for the future!
Just last week we had a visit from a large flock of Black Cockies! It really was a sight to see them flying around the roof tops and swooping in and around the trees before gathering the flock and flying off into the sunset. It would be such as shame to lose those moments.
