    I have owned a home in Walton Street for many years. I purchased this home because of the character of the street, and loved how quiet it was, as it is a dead end street.During the past 4 years, the number of residences in the street has doubled!! We have four 3 bedroom townhouses that has not had adequate car accommodation since it was built. Difficult for the tenants to get in and out of their garages, so most of them park in the street. I notice in the DA that it refers to "two lane bitumen access off Walton Street". If someone parks on one side of the street and another car, or god forbid a small truck is parked on the other, no vehicle can pass at all!! Walton Street is a very old, narrow street.
    Four years ago we had 4 dwellings on the Southern side of the street and on the northern side we had 3 dwellings. As of February 2019, we have 10 dwellings with another proposed three dwellings with this application!!! The number of vehicles has increased by 10 permanent garages, plus visiting cars from rental properties that come at all hours of the day and night. Walton Street is all of 100 metres long or thereabouts and half of the northern side is the side of the Ambassador Motel. Where is our green space. The homes are not set 6 metres back from the street.....our homes are about 4 metres back at best, and every vehicle sounds like it is driving into your bedroom!! I and my fellow Walton Street neighbours will be making a lot of noise about this and I hope the community will join with us. Seriously, this is quite absurd!
