  1. Joe Levitt commented

    This area is already too densely populated with the Ashmore precinct. This is a family neighbourhood and a boarding house is not appropriate here. We very strongly object to this application.

  2. Josh Edmunds commented

    Given there are no other affordable housing options in the Ashmore estate, this is a welcome addition. Close to transport, no car parking, it makes sense.

  3. Isabel M commented

    It is odd that the name of the client is not mentioned.
    Who is paying for the development. I think this is important in considering the DA.
    The area does need more affordable housing options to retain diversity and the mix of people that makes this such a vibrant neighbourhood. But it is odd that the client not named.

  4. Brady M commented

    This application is inappropriate for the area and more specifically Goddard Street. The area has already seen a dramatic increase in dwellings over the last several years and the addition of 37 boarding rooms is not suited to a small residential street with families in an already overcrowded area. As a resident we are strongly opposed to this application.
