Planning application at 16-22 Gatehouse Drive Kensington VIC 3031

This proposal is outrageous. You only have to spend 5 minutes standing on the Smithfield Road corner to realise that traffic is a major, major issue as things stand. There is no other exit from Kensington Banks to the west, north or south - no through road north to Epsom Road, and the river to the south. To the east, traffic is through a shared single road, The Crescent, where cars have to queue up to take turns to drive across the pedestrianised Stock Route. Adding any more apartments will compound the problem, creating chaos. To approve this proposal would be a folly of the highest order. Come out of your city offices, stop approving "developments" on paper-based applications, and see for yourselves what it is you are being asked to rubber stamp!
