To whom it may concern, Once a beautiful quiet pocket is becoming a DENSELY POPULATED nightmare! With all of the additional high rise apartments currently being constructed nearby (corner Epsom & Ascot Vale Rds) and Footscray Rd this further addition will crush us. We simply do not have the infrastructure to cope with more cars - parking and road congestion, complete lack of privacy for existing residences. How high, how many apartments? How many car parking spaces? Public transport? Kensington is a 'community' which seems to have been targeted for building apartments for the masses. It is already a day to day struggle to find parking, fight local traffic and get anywhere at all in your car when there is an even on at show grounds. You simply must consider these multiple factors as well as the local communities opinions before you slap another building up and not care about the outcome for the people who live in this area. Why, WHY are you determined to desecrate our suburb? Such bad planning destroys the beauty and the reason why people want to live here in the first place. This is not something that will improve our way of life or make Melbourne a better place to live. More apartments is not the way to go, better infrastructure and planning is what this country desperately needs...
