Planning application at 1 Dargie Place, Mooroolbark VIC 3138
July 16, 2017, 11:23 p.m.
We have been to VCAT in April over this development at 1 Dargie Place and I have spoken to you personally about the residents concerns re the over-development of this block. At VCAT the developer and owner said they were going to start construction immediately and now its July and nothing has happened at all. We are very concerned they are attempting to make changes without the residents knowledge.
At VCAT it was noted that the behaviour of the developers was unprofessional and that they had not submitted a landscape plan for the site. As this development is convening the streetscape of this beautiful court it is imperative that the council and residents ensure that all issues raised in VCAT have been addressed.
Of particular concern is the notation on the website that no date was recorded by council.
"We found this application for you on the planning authority's website 3 days ago. The date it was received by them was not recorded."
The dealings with this development so far has been extremely concerning with several breaches of OHS laws, unsafe work practices, leaving the site un-fenced next to a play-ground, workers urinating and defecating on the block in full view of the public and Worksafe had to be called in as the council refused to take any action.
Could you please give this your urgent attention so the residents of Dargie Place and surrounding area can have confidence that the council is showing due diligence of this development.
