    Who is council representing when approving these obscene ‘development’ applications?

    Are they representing the developers or local residents?

    South Maroubra has enough social economic issues ...dumping a 40 bed boarding house in the middle of a depressed area of Maroubra is plain MADNESS!

    What hope do local residents have to improve the area when Council continue to support these ‘ghetto’ creating developments.

    South Maroubra has no hope of council continue approving these boarding house applications. No hope.

    That the developer can use a loophole in DCP because boarding houses are not listed in the DCP or defined by the RLEP, but these Medium Density Residential are:
    • Attached Dwellings
    • Multi Dwelling Housing
    • Residential Flat Buildings.
    and somehow say that there is a difference between his boarding house development and other multi dwelling housing is a complete joke. Boarding house developments should be added to that list! Do we really want people to be forced to reside in low ceiling height shoe boxes in a suburban residential environment? A 2.7m ceiling height should be respected in this development and not redacted to improve a developers bottom line in what is an already dubious development approval.

    Agree with previous comments.

    It’s just so soul destroying to see these proposals approved. Local residents will now have to live with it’s ramifications or leave.

    It’s just so so sad. South Maroubra going back to the basket case it used to be... community regression unfolding infront of our very eyes.

    Randwick Council and local planning authorities should be ashamed...it’s another kick in the teeth for local residents and local law enforcement who will have to put up with the inevitable mess.

    Residents need to band together...we deserve better than this.

    I agree with the above comments.

    Thankyou Stephen Jones for cutting through the convoluted planning process and highlighting the weaknesses which allow the developers to get away with murdering an area.

    This is the start of the downward decline - let one do it - sets a precedence - more will follow.

    The huge eyesores along Anzac parade around Matraville are fine examples of rotten development by mostly developers.
