When the Atherton Gardens carpark on Brunswick was closed and fenced off it became clear that work was soon to commence on the new public housing project that had received planning approval last year. As the tram shelter on Brunswick St was located on an easement into the property, it also suddenly became obvious why it had been removed in December. It’s going to be fascinating to see how this progresses.

    I still don’t understand where all the tenants from next door are going to park their cars? This used to be a large carpark,
    Will they be knocking down the old style flats now.. they should ..
    THeir was a complete lack of consultation on this. Ah when it is Govt , no rules apply?
    Personally , i think it will be huge , and totally not in keeping with the street – again.

      There was public consultation about this. There is more information on my post from last year. The car parking previously available was more than was required. The old flats are not being removed.
