To whom it may concern,
 
I am writing to voice my support for the proposed Nightingale Village in Duckett, West & Hope Street. I believe that the approval of the proposed development will enable Moreland City Council to demonstrate to its existing and future residents that it prioritises fossil-fuel free,community-driven development.
 
The Moreland Planning Scheme and best practice planning seek to ensure that as our communities change and evolve we are able to address the needs of both the current and future residents. I believe that this proposal appropriately responds to the existing site context and will result in significant improvement. As a resident of (Brunswick/Moreland), I would like to see more apartments that provide communal spaces, focus on the facilitation of building communities and use materials that will age well within the existing site context.
 
I support the proposed car share arrangement. I support the notion that addressing congestion will not occur if we continue to incentivise driving by providing car parking, I support the Nightingale ambition of seeing a complete shift in transport modes over the coming decade.
 
I support the current yield as a means to provide 20% housing to be sold to Community Housing Providers. I believe we should be encouraging and supporting other developments to continue with this. I support the Nightingale model of providing housing at cost and believe that should be an important consideration in Moreland support the planning permit proposal.
 
I believe that this development will make a positive contribution to the eclectic and diverse environment of Brunswick. I encourage Moreland City Council to support this development.

Sincerely,
