    The owner / developer of 191 Pitt Street Redfern (the former Somerset Pub on he corner of Pitt Street and Phillip ) wants to build a 13 unit boardinghouse and estimate the cost to be $400 000!

    When did anyone build 13 units for 400K, let alone on a heritage listed site?

    The floor space ratio (if approved) will be 54% greater then what is allowed in the planning controls and 63% greater in regards to the height using South Sydney LEP.

    That is building 9.75 meters high where a 6 meter restriction is in the planning control.

    That is is 167 M2 extra on a 309 M2 site.

    That is 24 occupants on a 309 m2 site.

    Privacy and peacefulness for all us neighbours all gone.

    This is the second Development application in the same amount of years.

    Please have a look at the plans here and raise your voice to stop this overdevelopment;

  2. Please use your real full name if possible.

  1. We never display your street address. Why do you need my address?
