Multi-level Carpark proposed for Heathmont

Please see below for an email directed to Heathmont Bushcare. If anyone has an interest in the matter and would like to contact Alex, I have included his contact details below.

Hello,
I am writing to gauge the opinion of Heathmont Bushcare of the proposed Heathmont multi-level car park.
I have a number of concerns regarding the proposal, namely: – a multi-level carpark was never part of the Heathmont village master plan, which was approved with community consultation- a multi-level construction in such a prominent location would have significant visual impact, and detract from the village style character of Heathmont- the requirement for the removal of a number of established, native trees on the site which are an extension of the FC Rodgers reserve (the home of many rare native species of plants).- traffic flow at the Campbell street/Canterbury road intersection, which is problematic already.- the purchase of the land by council in early 2020 to facilitate the development, to the tune of >$4m, indicating that the development is a ‘done deal’ already.
Another resident and I are putting together a campaign to request adequate community consultation. I have (just tonight) started an online petition.
We are keen to hear your feedback and whether you’d be willing to support this campaign.

Kind regards,

Alex Kingsbury
