We have a winner – 12 storey’s now 6.

Residents 2, developers  get real..

… We won!!! a reduction from 8 to 6 levels that we asked for, and we would like to thank you for your assistance and input to make it possible.

APPLICATION CONCERNING: 300 Toorak Road, SOUTH YARRA VIC 3141

This was the second time the developers went to VCAT. The first time, VCAT rejected the application for a 12 storey development, and suggested reducing it by 4 or 5 storey’s; and this time VCAT approved it but reducing the height from 8 to 6 levels

…One thing that the Council’s solicitor said to us, most of the time when he is defending for the Council at the VCAT hearings, although the residents are in contact outside the hearing, they don’t attend them to show support and indicate to the tribunal how keen they are about the proceedings, where as the developers would have a large team for the entire duration. We were fortunate enough to have a few residents each making a presentation, as well as some of the others being present throughout the hearing, so much so that we always outnumber them.

…we found previous decisions to be very useful for similar cases.

Fingers crossed for your decision. ( Curlew Court)

Cheers

Anne & Bing
