Please find below Hobsons Bay Council’s town planner’s report stating their grounds for refusing the developers application.
The Good: Council seem to be clear on why the design and scale of this building is not appropriate for our neighbourhood and the Timber Yard site. Largely reiterating their in-fill guidelines and highlighting how detrimental it is to our existing neighbourhood character.
Not so good: Unfortunately Council don’t support our concerns regarding the difficulties current residents face parking in the surrounding area, and the adverse impact this development would have.
The Bad: The developer having seen this report still feels justified in their design proposal to peruse it, and is challenging Councils decision at VCAT.
Please read this report and if you feel you can contribute feedback to us, to help Council uphold their refusal, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
