 Anonymous said... Does anyone know what is going on at 498 Burke Road? This is a property on the corner of Burke Rd and Cochran Avenue. The original property was demolished and a large hole was dug, deep enough for about 3 floors. Recently a wall has been put up on the Burke Road frontage and some graffiti has gone up with 1 saying the words "Shame". Local residents have mentioned seeing a number of bikie characters hanging around the development site. This is very concerning as there has been some major development going on at this site and a number of things seem suspicious. Does anyone in BRAG have any information on this site?

 Anonymous said... I'll be very surprised if a brothel appeared in a Residential Zone 1 area of Camberwell. However it is a little suspect that bikie looking characters are hanging around the site. An alternative possibility is that this development is going to be outside the norm of a large single dwelling home and as a result it has had a hard time fighting local residential 'anti-development' groups (possible ones from the Sunnyside estate?). Perhaps due to this, the owner of the site has had to resort to some 'security'... In any case, its very unlikely that there will be a brothel there, at least not openly... More likely, multi-residential development or at worst, a bikie hangout?? Perhaps this question is better solved with someone with hard evidence commenting on this question. Does anyone have documents around the council planning permit for this site? December 26, 2007 9:22 PM
