    Hello, I am a resident in James Street, Surrey Hills. A proposed apartment development where Planning Permit Application has been posted on the property on the corner of 474 Whitehorse and James St’s Surrey Hills for a three storey block of 11 apartments is proposed.

    Last night a group of residents in the surrounding area met to discuss opposing the application. We have until 17 November to put in our objection to this application.

    A group of residents from the surrounding area will be meeting tomorrow (Saturday, 14 November at 10am at the site) to do a door knock and mail drop to alert the residents in area of this planning application.

    Our concern is the growing number of apartments either currently underway or being proposed along Whitehorse Road and the change to our neighbourhood along with the traffic management along Whitehorse Road.

    We seek the support from the Save Our Suburbs and seek advice and guidance from SOS as to ways to successfully oppose this worrying change to our the our area.

    In the meeting last night it was discussed as to how SOS can be of any assistance and I was asked to look into the opportunity of having either a representative from SOS or advice as we would are planning to stage a protest at the site highlighting the impact of what these proposed apartments are having on our area. The increased traffic, pedestrian safety and the lack of interest on the impact of building projects of 11 apartments where once stood a family home is having on our beautiful area.

    Can you help us? or give us advice?

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Yours sincerely,

    Anna Marulli
