Hi - Question regarding the zoning and overlays to this site: Is there a neighbourhood character restriction to this site and its surrounds? This has been applied by council locally to other nearby streets - which are now blocked from carrying out a development of this kind on a site this size.

On another note, I am greatly troubled by the potential loss of this home from the area. It is a fabulous example of the period architecture which made this area of Mornington what it is today. The difference between conservation and restriction on development should not hinder natural improvement and modernising of the area - I am a building designer. There are ways to achieve both. My understanding of what the neighbourhood's environment and integrity seems to differ however from that of the council and the planning implementations.

I look forward to your thoughts.

Kind regards,

Ciaran Wilcox
