The reality of what’s happening to our neighbourhoods is evident in the following data. In the space of just 9 weeks, there have been planning applications for well over 600 dwellings. Given the current zoning and council’s pro-development stance, combined with VCAT’s endorsements, we estimate that probably 95% of these applications will be rubber stamped. We also suspect that councillors don’t have a clue as to most of these applications!

Featured below are just those multi-unit proposals. We ignore the countless double storey attached that is rampant throughout all areas.

1170 Dandenong Road, Carnegie – 3 storey – 27 units

15 Belsize Avenue, Carnegie – 4 storey – 52 units

93 Truganini Road, Carnegie – 3 storey – 28 units

PS; TO RUB MORE SALT INTO THE WOUNDS HERE IS THE LATEST APPLICATION BY THE MRC FOR THE RACECOURSE!

Use of land for a place of assembly (Outdoor Cinema)

So, what was supposed to be used for racing has now become another money making venture for the MRC. What was supposed to create no noise, will now be blaring out movies at all times presumably of night and day. What was supposed to be the end of the MRC’s manoeuvring according to some councillors is still well and truly alive. And naturally residents are still being kept in the dark as to what occurred at the VCAT mediation regarding the objection to council’s miniscule conditions on balconies and parking for the C60.  We’ve learnt that the VCAT member has made an order! When will council divulge whether they’ve caved in again or not?
