This is beyond a joke. I live on this street, and it is already overflowing with cars. It's a nightmare to get into our driveway with the units next door to this application. The cynic in me says that the applicants are trying to push through a 5 storey development so starting way above at 7 storeys in order to 'compromise'.

I will be doing a letterbox drop of the area tomorrow, and ensuring ALL locals are aware of this application. There are 103 carparks cited for 73 dwellings; with stackers. How many of the residents of this development will actually use the stackers? Case studies in other built up areas have shown they do not work and residents choose to avoid them. There is no supermarket within close walking distance, and all residents WILL own cars.

There are no other comparable developments in this area, with the max height being 3 storeys. This should not be allowed.

John, can you please arrange a public meeting for this proposed development.

From Mel Wu to local councillor John Kavanagh
