Agree entirely with the comments made by Ms Judy Brown. The indiscriminate construction of dwellings without any thought whatsoever to the impact on local amenities and infrastructure should cease immediately. Many public schools (e.g. Balwyn High School, GWSC) have already stopped taking in new students despite families living well within the school's zone because the schools simply don't have the required capacity to absorb this huge growth in student numbers. Consequently children have to look for another school that is far from their residence. Too many apartments and townhouses squeezed into small blocks are a detriment to our already creaking infrastructure. What steps have council taken/will be taking to address our concerns? This is not a case of NIMBYism - build by all means but give permits ONLY AFTER ensuring that existing infrastructure is upgraded and can meet the spurt in population. It is high time that our problems are addressed not merely by lip service.
