I am a resident of Beavers Rd and have just noticed a planing application notice placed on what is currently a mechanics business near the corner of Beavers Road and High St, Northcote. [map]
According to the application notice, the site is to be developed into 2 six story blocks containing 95 apartments and an unspecified number of shops/retail.
A significant amount of this frontage will be on Beavers Rd.
While I don’t object to the site being developed, the scale of it would seem to be a little large, particularly the 6 story height in what is a residential street.
Objections need to be in by the 30th of July 2011. I intend to object, as will many of our neighbors, but felt that the DADA might also be interested in looking over this.
