The meeting on 16th considered proposals by
- the Anglican church for eight ‘supportive housing’ units on St Luke’s Church site, Newdegate Street (Block 1 Section 30 Deakin)
- Provectus for a 90 bed residential aged care accommodation, 12 assisted living units, plus 40 seniors respite places on the Art Gallery site, 38 Grey Street (Block 13 Section 49 Deakin)
The meeting was attended by 83 people. Most were Deakin residents.
In general, there was support for the St Luke’s development, although there were concerns about the possible sub lease arrangements.
On the other hand, there was angst about the Grey Street development. Questions were asked about increased traffic, pedestrian safety, off site parking, underestimation of parking impact, increased noise (especially for those in the Ambassador apartments), building design, local shadowing, over-scale and inappropriate development for the site.
