    Nobody likes what is happening in Murrumbeena! Dictator Dan's sky rail is ruining the area totally. The shopkeepers are friendly and wonderful but the whole suburb and those on either side are being destroyed!(Comment received through social media chatter)

    Put the rail underground as "promised!!???"(Comment received through social media chatter)
  • Admin Commented City Futures over 3 years ago
    I'd like to see the scraping of SKYRAIL(Comment received through social media chatter)
  • Admin Commented City Futures over 3 years ago
    if we have to have that revolting sky rail keep the graffiti away. and for everyone asking about hotels , Murrumbeena is a dry area so I am sure there would have to be a law past...(Comment received through social media chatter)

    Lived in the area for 48 years and Neerim road definitely needs an overall its old, dull and nothing is there..., that Foodworks is revolting it needs an overall. We need more restaurants, cafes to be more cosmopolitan and make it a night time destination not just for day time after all some people work so only have the nighttime. And absolutely definitely need a pub or a good bar....no tab or pokies thanks.(Comment received through social media chatter)

    Best area I've lived in, keep graffiti under control, don't care if there isn't a good "pub" in the area, people will then complain there are dunks making noises around their street, plenty of good ones 1 suburb away. Keep multi storey development, dense living under control. Overall I think it's fantastic and hope we don't wreck it by trying to change things for the sake of change.(Comment received through social media chatter)

    Car parks at these shops!
  • Admin Commented City Futures over 3 years ago
    I agree that area needs a pub/bar and a heritage overlay to stop further apartment developments.(Comment received through social media chatter)
  • Admin Commented City Futures over 3 years ago
    Definitely need a bar/pub. Major opening for an alternative to the pokie ridden/tab screen filled pubs of the south east. Craft brewery/craft beer seller?(Comment received through social media chatter)

      Hahaha I LOVE THE PARKS!! MAKE ME A LOCAL(Comment received through social media chatter)
  • Admin Commented City Futures over 3 years ago
    I lived in Donvale/Doncaster East for quite a while before moving to Murrumbeena, I love living here but it really does lack a pub, more trees and maybe some work on the very boring park.(Comment received through social media chatter)
  • Admin Commented City Futures over 3 years ago
    Ensure there are more heritage overlays on some of the old beautiful homes that are getting knocked down for monstrosities. The character of the suburb is slowly dying.(Comment received through social media chatter)
  • Admin Commented City Futures over 3 years ago
    I'd like to see a good bakery, not a chain. And replanting of trees please.(Comment received through social media chatter)

    I'm concerned about child safety in streets around Murrumbeena Primary school with increase in traffic. Hobart Rd and Weeroona Rd are zoned for multi-story development. 31 Weeroona Rd has appealed to VCAT. Neighbours objected & council rejected 18 apartment with 29 cars & stacker. HELP - there are plenty more developers salivating over large blocks with old homes in the school zone.Comment received through social media chatter)

    We need a pub or a wine bar! With outdoor seating during summer.(Comment received through social media chatter)
  • Admin Commented City Futures over 3 years ago
    Great cafes but lacking a pub.(Comment received through social media chatter)
  • Admin Commented City Futures over 3 years ago
    Child friendly cafes. Nature boy and iron Henry are great.(Comment received through social media chatter)
  • Admin Commented City Futures over 3 years ago
    I love that Hobart Rd and Ardyne St don't join up. Please don't let this happen, you will be turning a small street with a primary school in the middle of it into a busy rat run.(Comment received through social media chatter)

    Maple and Moss is a great florist and has lovely little gift ideas.(Comment received through social media chatter)

    Council should push Vicroads to re-align Neerim Rd to the south side of the new station, then the north side can become a 'village' type shopping precinct for local traffic only. If the street was made one-way the parking could be re-arranged to a diagonal type design that would greatly increase the number of spaces.

    Need a bigger supermarket(Comment received through social media chatter)

    The level crossing, keep the level crossing, it's so much fun.(Comment received through social media chatter)

    I used to love Murrumbeena - but this councils apathy against the Skyrail project will see it destroyed for ever.(Comment received through social media chatter)
  • Admin Commented City Futures over 3 years ago
    Too late to ask us what we love about our suburb. This Andrews government made sure we had no say. How is it possible that no impact studies or business plans were required when you tear down historically significant railway stations and 250 year old trees just to push your election agenda of removing level crossings.(Comment received through social media chatter)
  • Admin Commented City Futures over 3 years ago
    Whatever it was we loved about our local shopping strip...it can never be the same...you cut down our trees, changed the skyline and are changing our traffic flow....all too late for such a question...and in any case...council is not listening!(Comment received through social media chatter)
  • Admin Commented City Futures over 3 years ago
    I love the trees that used to tower in unexpected places but you are systematically chopping them down.(Comment received through social media chatter)
  • Admin Commented City Futures over 3 years ago
    There is currently very little good about Murrumbeena except for a good Indian restaurant and a great baker. Would love to see some open public space beneath the rails and some planned development.(Comment received through social media chatter)
  • Admin Commented City Futures over 3 years ago
    No Skyrail would be a good start. Too little too late City of Glen Eira. We needed you and you went missing.(Comment received through social media chatter)
  • Admin Commented City Futures over 3 years ago
    We need some decent places for dinner - some licensed restaurants. A sunny beer garden would be awesome.(Comment received through social media chatter)
  • Admin Commented City Futures over 3 years ago
    Many nice cafes but lacking good restaurants for dinner option IMO.(Comment received through social media chatter)
