As a council, and community, we need to decide if what we really want is for Brisbane Street and the rest of Old Berwick to become a series of high density units and townhouses. As a resident and owner of one home and rental home, I can confirm that we and other neighbourhood residents want the high density to stop. It's ridiculous that developers from Dandenong and other areas can divide up the properties to these small sizes and take away character and the feeling of community from the town and local residents. High density belongs elsewhere not in a town area which is reknowned for it's character and English style architecture, plantings and heritage. It's unique in Melbourne and the area, we urge to to reconsider developments of this scale. Think beyond rates, or you'll have ratepayer flashback to consider. Residents have the right to say what character the area should maintain. Protect this jewel of a town.

Hi (you didn't put your name to the email) regulations for planning in all areas just not Berwick (and I live in the Berwick area you talk about) are set by the State Government not Council, we only enforce the regulations If we don't approve an application that meets all these guidelines set by the state government then a developer will take it straight to VCAT for them to approve If your so concerned ,happy to meet with you or your neighbours at your home or mine or at the council offices or give me a call to arrange 0400 043 523 thanks Mick
