STATEMENT OF GROUNDS

HAMPTON NEIGHBOURHOOD ASSOCIATION INC,  Reg A0061728S 

5A RAILWAY CRESCENT, 2-6 WILLIS STREET & 1-25 KOOLKUNA LANE, HAMPTON VIC 3188

VCAT REFERENCE NO. P1479/2017 

1.              The proposal is contrary to the urban form and or structure to be achieved under Design and Development Overlay – Schedule 12 [DDO12].

2.              There is no justification for the exceedance of the preferred maximum heights under DDO Precinct A1 and E1.

3.              The proposal would present as excessive visual bulk an unacceptable outlook when viewed from surrounding areas.

4.              The proposal fails to provide appropriate spatial separation and meaningful visual breaks in what would be effectively a continuous mass.

5.              The proposal would unacceptably impact on the amenity of surrounding residential areas particularly including Willis Street, Willis Lane, Orlando Street and Railway Crescent, Hampton by reason of visual bulk and loss of outlook, contrary to the legitimate expectations derived from DDO12.

6.              The proposal would unacceptably impact on vehicular and pedestrian movements including bus movements and parking around Hampton with a parking shortfall of 43 spaces and in particular movement to and from Willis Street, Willis Lane, Railway Crescent and Orlando Street, Hampton.

7.              The proposal would fail to provide a diversity in dwelling types.

8.              By reason of excessive bulk and height the proposal would fail to create high quality public open space with good solar access.

9.              The proposal includes significant loss of high value vegetation and soft landscape without replacement

10.              The proposal fails to adequately address the Hampton Street and Orlando St/Railway Crescent Heritage overlays.

11.              Extension of commuter car park at rear of Orlando Street residencies reduces security and safe enjoyment of these properties and subjects them to noise and light pollution, especially at night.

12.              It is in direct conflict with many aspects of the vision, strategy, design objectives and built form outcomes for the Willis Street precinct, as articulated in Bayside Planning Schemes.

13.              It is strongly opposed by the local community
