Halt high-density construction without community consultation in Lightsview now!

This petition had 159 supporters

The members of the Lightsview Community, wish to express our concerns regarding the trajectory of high-density residential developments and their negative impact on our privacy, use and enjoyment of our homes. We seek an immediate halt on apartment construction to conduct community consultation and return to reasonable planning guidelines regarding overlooking and overshadowing considerations as they pertain to current and future developments, as well as demanding stronger controls on the impact of ongoing construction in the area.

The impacts on light, airflow, privacy, parking, security, emergency services access, traffic, waste management, health & safety, and amenities for existing and future residents appear to have been all but ignored in the planning and execution of the later stages of the Lightsview development. 

We demand in-depth community consultation and consideration regarding these issues before any further high-density development occurs in Lightsview. To date, responses from Deputy Premier and Member for Enfield, John Rau, and PEET Project Director, Alan Miller, have been utterly unsatisfactory, delaying meetings and refusing to engage meaningfully with the numerous, serious concerns of residents.

By supporting this petition, you add your voice to the growing number of residents seeking to protect their health, safety, security and quality of life from the near-sighted greed and opportunism of government and developers, who seek to profit at the expense of owners and residents of a community on track to become a ghetto.
