This property, lovingly restored, is the original farm house in the area, surrounded by beautiful mature trees and a truly green landscape. To be replaced by a concrete jungle that is not respectful of existing neighborhood character. These developments force the neighbors out of the area, as they did not choose to live next to high density living with all its ramifications. This will have a snowball destructing effect as more residents sell up and move out., resulting in loss of our large, heritage homes to be replaced by more and more boxes.
In Boroondara's Council Precinct 74 Planning Permit Analysis, the council reported that there had been no notable change in the number or type of planning permit
applications received since the introduction of the new residential zones. This is because the large family homes don't come up on the market often. But, as every large block comes on the market now, as was the case with 16 Boston Road, they are quickly snapped up by the developers as they know we are part of the 15 % developers can target in our city because of the zoning classification the council has assigned us.
