The impact of over development can be widespread. A decision in Glen Waverley will impact people businesses and properties way past its 3150 postcode.
I believe many decisions that have been made by your current council, led by Cr Lake, ignore consequences.
Community members have laboured tirelessly to present submissions to Council detailing their concerns – only to be ignored. This contemptuous disregard of ratepayers’ opinions must stop.
Consequences of planning decisions that have, and will in the future, result in over-populating finite space include, but are not limited to:
Infrastructure:- Traffic travel times /congestion / accidents/ parking; transport capacities including Public and commercial; logistics; routes; road maintenance; emergency services
Utilities:- Resources such as water; stormwater ; sewage ; waste; power
Environment:- Aesthetics and liveability; air quality / pollution; biodiversity
Public amenities:- Access to nearest neighbourhood schools; sporting fields and open space
Health:- Mental and general health; social inclusion
Economic Activity:- Property values; trading
Criminal Activities:– Policing
The following slideshow is one that I believe describes the situation in Glen Waverley.
