A quiet and prosperous suburb on the beach has been shocked by the news that The Block is going to film there, while older residents fear that the show will & # 39; ruin their neighborhood & # 39 ;.
Channel Nine is set in the 2020 season of the Brighton show in Melbourne, after MicJoy Pty Ltd, a network owned company, purchased a $ 14.96 million site in April.
According to Domain, a permit to move five houses to the Melbourne site, will be processed at Bayside Council later this year.
If approved, filming is expected to start in February, with neighbors already fearing the massive renovation and TV production ruining & # 39; their quiet street & # 39 ;.
Mrs. Landes, whose 36-year-old unit is separated from the site by an old fence, told Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday that it is likely to block the tiny bit of sun that gets her home.

& # 39; My unit is already very cold and it will block the sun, & # 39; she said, while the site is currently being cut off from the public with a black wooden gate.
She added: & # 39; I will miss the sunsets too and they will make so much noise. Wherever they build, there will be noise, but what can you do about it? & # 39;
Mrs. Landes, who moved to the rented unit in 1983, claimed that a neighbor is already planning to sell her house before the renovation works begin.
& # 39; My girlfriend said she will put her house on the corner before it all starts, & # 39; said Mrs. Landes, explaining that the neighbor was already planning to move in the near future, but now the process is speeding up.

Change: & # 39; My unit is already very cold and it will block all sun, & # 39; she said, adding, & i'll miss the sunsets too and they'll make so much noise … but what can you do about it? & # 39;
Big plans: the $ 14.96 plot is surrounded by small units and houses
A second neighbor, who asked to remain anonymous, said that The Block & # 39; would change their quiet street forever & # 39; and they had known about the plans for months.
On the Daily Mail Australia photos & # 39; s, the site that is currently overgrown with old building materials seems to be cleaning up.
Nursing home Andrina was located at the address until 2014, before it was demolished with developers who wanted to build 13 luxury mansions.
After these plans were finally canceled and the site left empty for years, Nine & # 39; s MicJoy Pty Ltd purchased the site in April 2019.

High expectations: according to Domain, the application mentions & # 39; moving five houses to the site and contains details about building a two-story extension at the back & # 39;
According to Domain, the application of the company & # 39; mentions moving five houses to the site & # 39; – comparable to the 2017 season of the show in Elsternwick.
& # 39; The houses to be relocated to the land of Brighton will, according to the permit from the 1930s to 1960s, be single-storey residential housing, & # 39; reports the location.
The publication also claims that the application contains & # 39; details about building a two-story extension at the back of the houses & # 39 ;.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel Nine for comments.
