    I object to this for the following reasons:

    1. The proposal is inconsistent with the aims set out in clause 1.2(2) of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012 as the proposal does not enhance the amenity and quality of life for local communities, nor does it achieve a high quality form by ensuring that new development exhibits design excellence and reflects the existing or desired future character of the subject locality.
    2. The proposal does not comply with Clause 4.3 (Height of Building) of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012. This non-compliance results in an increase to the bulk and scale of the building which will be visible from nearby properties and the public which will have a detrimental impact on neighbouring amenity and on the character of the heritage conservation area.
    3. The Clause 4.6 request relating to Clause 4.3 (Height of Building) of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012 is not supported. The variation of the standard would result in a built form that does not reflect the desired future character of the locality and does not comply with the relevant objectives of the height standard.
    4. The proposal fails to comply with Clause 5.10 (Heritage Conservation) of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012. The proposal is not sympathetic to the character of the conservation area and it will have adverse visual impacts to the streetscape.
    5. The proposal does not satisfy the requirements for design excellence set out in Clause 6.21 of the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012. The proposal will alter the form and bulk of the building and will result in adverse amenity and visual impacts to the neighbouring buildings, streetscape and heritage conservation area.
    6. Contrary to the provisions in Section 4.1.3.6 and 4.1.8 of the Sydney Development Control Plan 2012, the roof terrace and enlargement of the first floor rear decks will have adverse visual and acoustic impacts on adjacent properties.
    7. Contrary to Section 4.1.8 of the Sydney Development Control Plan 2012, the enlargement of the upper ground floor does not contribute to the building design quality or respect the visual and acoustic privacy of neighbours.
    8. The rear roof extension is contrary to the provisions in Section 4.1.5.5 of the Sydney Development Control Plan 2012 in that it is not setback at least 200mm from the rear wall, does not have a single bank of double hung or casement windows, and has a rear awning of more than 300mm in length.

    9. In view of the above, the proposal is considered not to be in the public interest and is contrary to Section 79C(1) (e) of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979. The proposal will have adverse amenity impacts to the residents of the neighbouring building and will create an undesirable precedent. The proposal will diminish the overall effect and efficacy of the development standard on the site and the surrounding area.

    I am sick to death of building noise. I have just had 6 months of it from other neighbours.
