    Five stories is too high. We have a nice low rise development policy that keeps Bondi the nice low key suburb it should be. I object to that height. It is not in keeping with the surrounds. Do not allow developers to grab every square inch of space at the expense of overdevelopment and loss of views and sunlight for everyone else around them.

    Five stories is way to high for Bondi, we don’t want to turn into the Gold Coast. This sets an ugly precedent for more and higher height DAs in future.

    We need to save Bondi from all these horrendous development applications. In this time of Covid, and moving forward, we need space not more development!

    Good to see the facade is being retained. The building is quite run down now so this looks like an improvement IMO. Would be good if the date featured on the building facade can be retained as well.

    I object to this DA. This is gross overdevelopment of the site. 5 stories is too high and sets a precedent for future developments in the area with inherent issues of overshadowing , increased parking/ traffic issue etc etc

    I agree with previous comments -

    I object to this development due to the excessive height of 5 storeys. This development should be capped at maximum 3 storeys high to ensure we do not overdevelop the area and do not set the prescedent for future developments to be 5 storeys high. A development this high will create issues of shadowing for other surrounding properties and the general area, traffic and parking issues in an already challenged area.

    I object to the development of 5 floors; 3 is the acceptable standard in this area. The continued excessive manipulation of the codes and standard of height with development in this area is derogatory to the culture and identity that makes this suburb unique. I hope that maintaining the 3 level standard will preserve the quality of living for residents that have dedicated years to this beautiful part of the world.

    NO NO NO !!!
    Enough of oversized developments!
    Enough of out of character developments!
    Enough of more traffic!
    Enough of less parking spots!
    Enough of fee / contribution waivers!
    Enough of favouring developers over residents!
    The council is meant to act in residents best interests, not its own! This is our community, our home, our backyard ... listen to us!
    ENOUGH ENOUGH ENOUGH !!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is far too high and will be clearly in breach of both height and plot density rules. Let’s not allow this dangerous precedent. Also let us not reward an outrageous opening bid with a “compromise” to an already excessive four levels. Three is the rule.
