1. Kensington Banks is designed as a medium density housing area, not high density. The 9 storeys should be reduced to 4 storeys. Keep in character and take a page from most European cities - don't create jutting developments alongside two storey town houses! Moderate growth please, not maximum investment return.

2. Clause 52.06 exists for a reason - Australians have 1-2 cars per household on average (see e.g. http://profile.id.com.au/australia/car-ownership and https://www.allianz.com.au/car-insurance/infographic/cars-per-person). It is irresponsible to modify this requirement for what is clearly a financially motivated outcome when it affects the entire community.
