AS one of many who attended the special electors’ meeting at Melville council on August 5 regarding the development of 94 Kitchener Road, I show my support for the Striker Balance group of residents.
I am surprised that such an enormous structure could be considered for this established suburb of mostly single-storey family houses.
The application breaches both height and plot ratio R-codes; will cause loss of privacy for many homes as well as loss of amenity to the whole area.
The original development application was for a two-storey residential/commercial mix.
There were no objections to this application and to me it would offer a building that would be conducive to the area and meet the building codes supposed to rule and protect the area against developments such as the one now proposed.
I can only hope the elected council members will support the people who elected them in refusing this application and encourage the Development Assessment Panel to do the same.
