I came across this op-ed today in The Age. In it, Clay Lucas discusses Bent Street and the the quality of housing being built in and around, not only Glen Eira, but Melbourne. Dodgy builders erecting structures that are so poor in quality, they will probably need to be pulled down in the future.
I have already had a number of people tell me that they live in these new apartment buildings. What they see, after only a couple of years, are leaky roofs, crumbling walls, cement rendering on the outside crumbling and windows and doors that no longer close properly. Why would anybody want to spend over $500,000 on a one bedroom apartment and be left with hefty body corporate expenses in the future to fix this mess?
Take a look at Bent Street, Bentleigh and see for yourself. Most residents in Glen Eira, and in many other suburbs across Melbourne have had enough.
Have your say and object to C143 amendment before it is too late.
Save mckinnon village
We are concerned residents who live on McKinnon Road, near McKinnon Village. This website was set up to object to the C143 ammendment to 88-100 McKinnon Road, McKinnon. If this, and the DDO overlay for four storeys goes ahead, it will be a catastrophe.
