My constituency question is to the Minister for Planning, and it relates to some height limits that are affecting the community of Bentleigh.
There has been great concern amongst members of the community for quite some time, and I know that there is a structural plan out at the moment seeking feedback in relation to the concerns that the community have.
In March of this year the government, with the local member in the Assembly, Nick Staikos, said that new planning controls would protect Bentleigh and Carnegie. There was an article just recently in relation to the height limit being ineffective and those concerns again being raised by the community.
My question is: can the minister confirm that there will be no more apartment towers of five storeys or higher in the area of Bentleigh?
