Developers are being constantly let destroy the local neighbourhood character: tearing down the trees and gardens, building with cheap materials that do not blend with the adjacent buildings, not providing adequate onsite parking, leaving the exisiting buildings to become derelict, not maintaining the area whilst they build these offensive appearing massive boxes, taking far too long to erect the new buildings. All this development is achieving is slums for 10-15yrs time....poor quality builds making fast money for greedy folks who have no concern for our local area.

Hello Bridget
While I can understand your comments, I do not think this development is actually seeking to do these things.

I believe that Council's preliminary assessment has determined that in fact there is no requirement for a reduction in parking because the proposal meets the statutory requirement. The online register has been updated to reflect this.

The application is quite limited in what it is seeking and is therefore classified as a VicSmart application.
