Here is another example of what is happening to our suburbs. Truganini Road, similar to Bent Street has multiple zonings ranging from Residential Growth, General Residential and Neighbourhood Residential. Whilst this is admittedly a Road Zone, with a tramline along certain sections, the amount of development is entirely inappropriate for the location. It would also appear that the right hand at council has no idea what the left hand is doing. For example: several years ago residents living along the road were granted a ‘parking dispensation’ – namely that because of the trams, they were granted permission to park on their nature strips as a safety measure. Since then, many have received fines and this has necessitated them going down to council, producing the official letter and having the fine removed.

Now with the rampant development along the road and the continual waiving of car parking the issue of trams, pedestrians and cars all mixing and trying to get out of their driveways is a real safety issue. Needless to say, council has yet to address this issue.

Once again the online planning register is devoid of sufficient detail to accurately ascertain the number of dwellings that will be erected on this road. The item for 86 Truganini simply states ‘construction of two or more dwellings’. Given this is zoned GRZ2 we are not very optimistic that this means 2 dwellings – especially when there is the demand for a reduction in car parking.

Thus, our conservative total for Truganini is at least 141 new dwellings post zones.
