Members Statement - Brighton East Development


Thursday, 3 September 2020

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton):

Many residents have written to me with concerns about the proposed development at 97–103 Thomas Street, Brighton East—the former Lees nursery site.

As David wrote to me: ‘Developers are cashing in and targeting Bayside and neighbouring suburbs due to the demand for housing’.

Maree has written: ‘We are highly anxious about the proposed development’.

And Lee wrote: ‘Our neighbourhood is concerned about the potential inappropriate development of our quiet street’.

Our community continues to be a target for development, in spite of many expressing their overwhelming concerns and objections to proposals such as this development.
