Having moved to Forestdale in 2018 for the lifestyle of space and community we are bitterly disappointed at this application to change the shops into offices. It’s truly a sad sad day as we have waited for shops to open and then this! The only reason the shops have remained vacant is due to the rent being too high considerably higher than it was previously when the shops were tenanted. I believe this change would be a blow to the commmunity as there is no hub for us to meet and all Forestdale residents would support shops if they were able to establish themselves and afford the lease. This application is incredibly upsetting and should be dismissed, the lease rates assessed as I believe they are inflated to make sure no shop owners are able to afford to establish a business here therefore the lessor can do what he likes. Disgraceful. Money over people basically.
