UPDATE – 26/01/2017
The BHCA Group has advised that the glitch, first reported on 9/1/2017, in Council’s system that records email objections has yet to be fixed and not all email objections have been, or are being, recorded correctly in Council’s system.
As a result some residents who have lodged, or are currently lodging, objections to the 19 storey development in Kooyong Road, are not being notified of the Glen Eira Planning Conference to be held on Thursday, 2/2/2017 at 6.30 p.m. at the GE Town Hall.
As per the below posting, any resident who has lodged an email objection with Council to this, or any other, development proposal should verify that they have received an auto reply to their objection. If an auto reply has not been received, please re-submit your objection.
ORIGINAL POSTING – 16/1/2017
GERA has recently received the below email from the BHCA Group who are opposing the proposed Bethlehem Hospital 19 Story development in Kooyong Road, Caulfield South.
The email is important and self explanatory – residents who have submitted objections to Council via email for this, or any other, development or planning scheme amendment should be aware of this “glitch”. Residents who have not received an auto reply to an emailed objection should re-submit that objection.
IMPORTANT ~ COUNCIL STUFF-UP WITH OBJECTION EMAILS
COUNCIL EMAIL SYSTEM HAS A GLITCH
It has come to our attention that a number of your objection emails have not been registered with Glen Eira council due to an inexplainable glitch in their email system. All objectors should have received an auto reply confirmation email from council.
If you have not received your confirmation you are not in the system and will not be notified of the community consultation meeting with the applicant and council expected to be in early February.
If you have not received confirmation of your objection email please resend it and make sure you receive an auto reply confirmation email. Don’t forget to copy firstname.lastname@example.org
NOT TO LATE TO LODGE YOUR OBJECTION
Despite the council glitch outlined above, there has been an outstanding response from all of you. We do notice however that the majority of registered objectors are naturally near the hospital or in nearby streets.
If you believe you won’t be affected because you don’t live that close, perhaps the attached winter shadow diagrams may cause you to reconsider. Winter shadows will cast to the other side of Nepean Highway in the morning and past the Brighton cemetery in the afternoon.
THAT’S YOUR WINTER SUN ~ MORNING & AFTERNOON.
Understanding how far the proposed tower casts a shadow, then it follows that overlooking of backyards is not limited to just the adjoining properties but covers hundred of metres over many streets in all directions both day and night.
If that doesn’t capture your interest then recognise that the tower will turn into a illuminated beacon at night that will light up your backyards and dominate the night sky for kilometres in all directions.
If your happy with all of the above do nothing. Alternatively this maybe your last chance to lodge you objection with council. Send your objection to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
Include the following information in your objection.
