Heights in residentials streets remains our No.1 concern.
The guidelines in the new structure plan do nothing to limit the heights in residential streets to 9 metres (as was inferred in the recent community workshop). In fact 4 storeys or above may be approved. Save Ivanhoe are meeting with Council to get clarification on the proposed guidelines.
Our concerns have been outlined in our letter to Council dated 20 May 2012. We are yet to receive a response to our queries.
We will keep you informed when we have further information.
On that note look out for your copy of this week's Heidelberg Leader. It contains an article regarding height limits in residential streets. You can have your say at the end of the article.
