    Please ensure no authority to block little Chelmsford st at any time of the day is given. This is the main road of access for south Albermarle st and building works on Hardimans St have a tendency to block access.
    Additionally, please ensure that strict building work site times are adheared to; including delivery of skips and materials as these are commonly delivered outside of these hours causing significant disruption to our family friendsly neighbourhood.
    The application does not stipulate whether this is to split the dwelling or provide additional space for the existing address. This should be clarified. Will the main mode of accessing the address remain via Hardimans st?

    Thanks B
    I will keep an eye on the application. It hasn't been advertised yet so it's early days.

    Replying to B Harcourt's message above (cc. Councillor Leppert per original message).

    Hey neighbour,

    Hopefully I can help out with a few answers to your questions. We also love the family feel of our pocket of Kensington too and want it to stay that way. The application is to provide some additional space to our existing home, so that our young family can stay in this great area long term. We will be keeping a healthy-sized backyard (at least by Kensington standards!) so there should be plenty of room on site for builders to do their thing without too much disturbance to the neighbourhood.

    Totally understand the concerns about noise outside of the work site times, and we would hate to think our reno has been a headache for our neighbours. If you'd like to know a bit more about what we're planning, feel free to drop a note with your phone number in our mailbox so we can chat, or just knock on the door and say hello!

    Best regards,
    Steve & Family
