Planning application at 367 Cotham Road Kew VIC 3101
Oct. 22, 2016, 12:52 a.m.
This development at 367 Cotham Rd, Kew on the corner of Bradford Ave, near the Traffic School is an overdevelopment of the site (31 apartments, 6 levels including 2 underground).
The building is too high (12.6 metres) and the 4th storey makes the building too bulky and dominant on the crest of a hill that is the highest point in Kew. The design and materials used are not sympathetic to the existing neighbourhood character. With 75 car spaces there will be additional traffic jams adjacent to a busy pedestrian crossing.
The 4th storey needs to be eliminated and the number of units reduced. The exterior needs to be better articulated and the materials changed, e.g., no black cladding.
I am happy to provide more details and additional concerns as well as other suggested changes. I can be contacted via the Bradford Ave Resident Group via email at Oppose367Cotham@gmail.com
