8 levels is clearly regarded as too high for most people, and council should start taking serious note of the level of objections. It's not a human scale, and it will creates dark, cold, and unfriendly spaces. It can only be motivated by the prospect of wringing the maximum profit from the minimum parcel of land. The application for a reduction in car parking simply reinforces profit as the prime motive.

Council needs to be addressing these developments with serious restrictive caveats, such as not allowing residents to apply for any future parking permits/concessions. State government should also be looking to apply caveats regarding any future objections residents may have to transport infrastructure such as raised railway lines.

Duckett street is currently a good route for cyclists escaping the congestion of Breese Street to join the Upfield path. This should be enhanced, allowing greater permability, not 'partially closed'.
