    Oh no .... not another Boarding House ! That makes six just in the immediate Kogarah Centre area . A new way to make developers more money .
    Seven floors... how many residents ? How much supervision of tenants? Who will live there ?
    The developers are the only people to be advantaged by these buildings .
    He will save a great deal of money by not having to pay the ‘ Open Space Contribution ‘
    To Council . Council loses.
    Saving on GST payable to Federal Government. Federal government loses.
    Saving on Land Tax payable to NSW state Government. NSW Government loses .
    The people who live there will be in tiny boxes . Future SLUMS.
    And who gains ? The developers/Owners .
    Not the community.

    Just how many "boarding houses" can Kogarah cope with? The sad reality would seem to be that these are in reality sub-standard undersized tiny bed sitters with no parking & well below the normally required floor space.

    The design does not comply with the new NSW law because the parking space should be 25 (with 1:0.5 ratio). Since there are already 2 boarding houses near by (1 on Gary St 1 on English St), it should be another location rather than putting them together, which leads to more local traffic, parking and even security issues. Kogarah is known for its community life and most of the residents are families, more boarding houses meaning more people just move in and out without considering the impact to our community. I strongly object this DA.
