Planning application at 367 Cotham Road Kew VIC 3101

I am extremely concerned abut the proposed development at 367 Cotham Rd, Kew on the corner of Bradford Ave, opposite the Traffic School. (PP16/00548)
The building, consisting of 31 units over 4 storeys plus 2 levels of underground parking is too high at 12.64 metres. With its visual bulk it would be an unwanted addition to the streetscape at the highest point in Kew. It would set a precedent for new 4 storey development along Cotham Rd.
The development should be reduced to 3 storeys and the third storey should be stepped back further so that it appears less bulky. This would also reduce overlooking for the several properties that abutt the development.
The building design and materials both need to respect the neighbourhood character of 1 and 2 storey period homes. Black fluted concrete is not in keeping with this area.
Our local amenity is under threat.
I have found useful information about objecting to this development on a flyer. Email Oppose367Cotham@gmail.com for a flyer or further information.
