    This is too big - the whole nature of the area is changing because of the increasing number of higher rise developments which are making the area into a very high density neighbourhood indeed. The amenities of the area are not increasing to match the population growth. Nor has sufficient been done to work out how to reduce the impact of so many people living closely together eg the small of a BBQ is often held to be desirable - getting the smell day after day after day is not! Same with parties and other noise producing events - the frequency rises until it is too intrusive. Parking already causes arguments in the area!

    Another oversize development for the area.

    Parking requirements should NOT be relaxed, parking is already bad here and whatever you might hope, too many Australians want to own cars. Or add a No-Car covenant.

    The right size for this is about four proper apartments, not seven micro slums

    The existing buildings have very little aesthetic or historic appeal, or at least that's what it seems like from street level. As with the majority of such proposed developments it is the quality of the replacement that is the issue. Maybe the site could support 7 dwellings that have a high environmental overlay and utilise good architectural design. This costs money which most developers are reluctant to spend. It would be bad to see yet another cheap, unsustainable development where energy use levels etc are high due to bad design. And definitely a reduction of parking requirements should not be allowed. Council should not go easy on this.
