luke here, we just moved into our lovely apartment on crnr drummond st and dandenong rd facing west to find that there will be a MASSAVE apartment building right in our face very soon! we will have no natural light at all, cant dry our cloths, cant grow plants, will look straight into there windows and parking is already terrible, how is this plan allowed? were in a 6 story building and so is next door once its built, and next to that is 5 stories, i understand we need more housing but you cant steal from people who have just perchased and will have everything good about there house taken away, you MUST only build as high as the apartments around, 6 stories high, no more, our large morgage will now be very hard to get payed off if we ever sell as the price will dive when people enter the apartment and see what has become of our lovely oakleigh views, very sad, doing all i can to stop it!

Hi Luke

Thank you for writing to me regarding your concern about development happening in the area surrounding your new home. I am pleased that to hear you are currently enjoying your home that you have recently moved into and if you have not lived within the City of Monash I hope you enjoy all that the City has to offer.

In regards to the specific concerns you raise, I have had the opportunity to get some advice regarding this application from Council’s Director City Development, Peter Panagakos. Peter has advised that the proposed development you refer to is for the construction of three buildings ranging in height from 4 to 18 storeys to be used for 348 residential apartments, 106 serviced apartments/residential hotel, retail tenancies including a supermarket and cafe/food and drink premises. The site is large, being approximately 9,600 square metres, and encompasses the land at 807-811 Warrigal Road and 1513-1517 Dandenong Road, Oakleigh.

The application was considered by Council at the 31 January 2017 Council meeting where the application was not supported. The applicant had appealed the decision to VCAT and hearings occurred in late May. Council was represented at the VCAT hearings by Maddocks lawyers.

During the course of VCAT’s consideration of the proposal, the applicant amended the plans. The main change was to reduce the overall height of the development from 18 storeys to 11 storeys (with some parts of the development being as low as 4 storeys). Council considered these amended plans at a Special Council meeting held on 16 May 2017 and further reduced the height to 8 storeys. Details of this decision can be accessed at: http://www.monash.vic.gov.au/About-Us/Council/Agendas-amp-Minutes/16-May-2017#agenda

The rezoning of industrial land north of Dandenong Road in 2011 – including the subject site and the land where your apartment sits – was done so to facilitate the establishment of apartment/residential development in amongst existing (and new) commercial land uses. As part of this, planning policy for this area suggests building heights of up to 6 storeys facing Dandenong Road. However, since the introduction of this planning policy, there has been new development which you can see in and around this area, which has slowly changed the context of the area. In doing so, Council thinks that a building height higher than 6 storeys is appropriate in some areas. In this regard, Council considers that a higher building height (than 6 storeys) is appropriate on this site, given that it is located on the corner of two main roads and also, given that the ‘main’ height of the development is oriented to the corner. Council considers this in the context of existing apartment buildings that exist in this area. While your apartment has a view west, toward this site, there is some distance between your property and the subject site.

The decision on the future of this site was made by VCAT yesterday, 30th June and they have supported the amended plans, which allow for 11 storeys on the site.

Your apartment building is one of the first buildings that have been developed in this precinct. It’s possible in future that more apartment buildings will be constructed near to you, to take advantage of Council’s policy for regeneration in this area. Council will consider each planning application as we receive them. As a land owner, you will be notified directly of any new development on land adjoining your apartment building.

As this proposal is considered to be a large development in the context of the City of Monash, the decision by VCAT will be updated on the Monash website next week. I would encourage you to monitor the website (you can subscribe to pages that you’re interested in) or contact James Heitmann, Principal Planner on 9518 3628 at any time for a further update.

Kind regards, Rebecca
