Planning application at 101-107 Rosslyn Street West Melbourne VIC 3003

1. The height of the building exceeds the Design Objectives and the Built Form Outcomes as stipulated in Schedule 29 – Design and Development Overlay produced by the City of Melbourne.
2. The proposed build does not give consideration to the scale of existing buildings as outlined in Schedule 29 – Design and Development Overlay produced by the City of Melbourne.
There are no other 9 story buildings which face Rosslyn street in this block. 9 stories should not be the standard for this street.
3. The bulk and height of the building does not fit in with the low rise village feel of West Melbourne. It is an over development which will be a detrimental addition to an otherwise low rise pocket of Melbourne.
4. The request for a reduction of the parking for the number of tenancies proposed is not reasonable and will increase the existing difficulty of parking in the area for residents (which I am). All street parking is utilised during Monday to Friday by local residents and those that commute to work. On most evenings and all weekends the parking is utilised by local residents and those attending events at Festival Hall and Etihad Stadium., and the Queen Victoria Markets. The approval of a development that does not need to accommodate the parking requirements of its residents and their visitors is not manageable and is irresponsible planning.

Thanks for your email Bridget.

The height controls in DDO29 are discretionary, so the bulk and height of the building will come down to what the planning officer considers to be a fair given other building heights in the vicinity. I will follow the progress of the planning application as it is assessed.

All the best

Dear Bridget,

The City of Melbourne has just refused the application. The decision was taken by officers under delegation.
