Protect Plenty Road from Over-Development

This petition had 129 supporters

The people who live on and adjacent to Plenty Road have been abandoned by Darebin Council.

On Monday the 21st of September, 2015, Amendment C137 was carried at council meeting to increase mandatory height limits for new developments along Plenty Road from three and four stories to six.

The motion is against the wishes of nearby residents who, if nothing is
done, will have to live with the negative impact of taller buildings overshadowing their homes and backyards, more traffic in their streets, more rubbish, pollution and noise.  They will loose the family homes and shops of yesteryear that are today's business incubators and artist spaces, to become the high rise slums of tomorrow.

The only people who benefit from higher density are developers and their buddies who don't live in the community and won't suffer the loss of their neighbourhood, reduced access to sunlight, loss of back yard privacy, increased conflict over public spaces (street parking, illegal parking on footpaths and nature strips, footpaths with long lines of bins, pedestrian lane way access) or pay the costs of repairing the near 100 year old crumbling infrastructure.

Sign the petition and urge Richard Wynne, the Planning Minister, to send Amendment C137 back to Darebin Council so that they can use their vote to represent the residents and tenants of Darebin rather than the visiting developers.
