Planning application at 1217-1219 Nepean Highway, Highett, VIC

@Cheryl, you may be surprised to know, that there is currently several properties at the corner of Mathieson & Karen Sts & Nepean Hwy, with a VCAT application pending, (the original development proposal was for 240 apartments on the site of 3 now demolished dwellings, which was rejected by council). The developer has erected a site sales office and appears to be going to presell the apartments, likely in advance of a VCAT/PlanningDept ruling. Of course, the apartments all typically have 1 car space per dwelling, but the reality is that most property owners have 2 or more cars per dwelling, and use their car space/garage for storage, preferring to park their cars on the street. This development and several others in the area will rapidly devastate the already crowded street parking.
