Do you know of the proposal to build…
4 x THREE STOREY BLOCKS OF FLATS
(BUILT OF CEMENT SHEET AND PAINTED BLACK)
CONTAINING 46 DWELLINGS
At the site of the old timber yard, 6 Paine Street Newport.
The proposal is by an out-of-town developer.
Key factors to consider:
- Three storey buildings plus roof top decking areas.
- Uncomplimentary design and construction in contrast to Heritage Overlay requirements and unsympathetic to surrounding building styles.
- Higher and more massive than anything in the area. Minimal and zero building set-back from the footpaths.
- Inadequate on-site parking provisions, the developer proposes residents and visitors to park in your street instead, including surrounding the Armstrong Reserve public park.
- This development presumes to be allowed to not comply with planning and building rules/laws/regulations that all of us have to comply with.
- As it is already difficult to exit Paine and Wilkins Streets into Melbourne Road during peak hours, it is likely new residents will choose alternate routes via Bunbury St and North Road, increasing traffic in Crawford, Latrobe, Effingham, and Bunbury.
