Dear Members and the wider community

Our peak hour protest on Wed 5th June. The travesty of our State planning regulations has allowed the approval of this seven storey development in Council’s designated five storey zone. Five magnificent trees will be sacrificed.

To add insult to injury, the original Application included two basement car- parking levels, the lower of which impinged on the water table.

The developer then submitted a so-called ‘variation’ to the Application involving major alterations to the original plan, a removal of the second basement and an extension of the first basement in an attempt to accommodate the shortfall in car parks.

However there will still be a deficiency in car parks of at least 12 places.
We are now faced with an overblown development, the destruction of long established trees and intolerable car parking problems in narrow adjacent streets.

How can this be allowed to happen?

Warren Jones AO. President
