    I thought the limit on this development was three stories. Also, I believe it has already been approved, so what is the point of lodging this now? I am strongly against it. It will create parking issues and look ugly in a street and suburb mostly full of beautiful federation houses. Please do not allow Hurlstone Park to become the next mini-Canterbury.

    A four level development will overshadow surrounding properties and look out of place in a street with predominately single and two level dwellings. What is the plan for parking? The position of of this site on the intersection/corner of the streets will make onsite parking entry and exit a potential traffic hazard. There seems to be no plans available on the Council website to view as yet, although the DA was lodged 21/5 ?

    I oppose this application. A boarding house is not suited to this pro dominantly family area.

    I agree with the comments above and also strongly oppose this application. This type of building and accommodation does not fit into this area, as previously mentioned we mainly have single and some two story dwellings in our area. What type of boarding house (42 rooms??) will this be? Dulwich Hill and Hurlstone Park are mainly populated by families and professionals. Furthermore, it will certainly create issues with parking, and the location of of this site on the intersection/corner of the streets will make onsite parking entry and exit a potential traffic hazard. I also agree that a four storey building will overshadow other properties. This boarding house must never be build please.

    This site is marked as a potential heritage conservation conservation area in the Sydney Metro precinct plan for Hurlstone Park.

    Please do not approve any out of character development at this location. Any development here should respect the local neighbourhood and be consistent with the local village atmosphere

    All, there is a DA that has already been approved for a three storey boarding house on this site. It was approved as per the Council minutes released a few weeks ago. Despite community opposition, Council approved it via electronic vote instead of at a public meeting.

    The developer now wants to try increasing the building from 3 to 4 stories. We can only oppose this latest DA. There is no point opposing the three stories. What’s done is done.

    It is already concerning that Council approved a three storey dwelling at this location, despite a good deal of local opposition. There were many reasons for not approving the original DA of three storeys, so for the developer to now ask for an additional storey is ridiculous.

    1) The DA that has been approved is already for three storeys - higher than all other dwellings in a residential street with single and two storey dwellings

    2) No satisfactory parking plan provided. Not enough spaces and an unsafe entry/exit on to a road that will have blindspots with the danger of resultant accidents

    3) This is a residential family street - a boarding house is not suited to this location

    As I said it is very disappointing that Council has for some reason approved a three storey dwelling, so I trust they will not make a bad situation worse by giving in to a developer who has been told a number of times that his DA is inappropriate and badly planned
