    I approve & consent to the DA proposal, however, the site is a place of worship and should remain a religious facility only. It should not include a secondary business such as a Café/kiosk. There are numerous cafes in/around the Redfern area. These Café operators are paying rents to trade & it would be unfair/detrimental to their existing businesses should another Café open nearby. A lot of these existing Cafes appreciate & rely on parishioners dining in their Cafes during/after functions/events/masses being held at the Church. To open a Café/kiosk internally, you will take away business trade from existing Cafes to an in-house Café at the Church, all whilst these attendees have taken up valuable parking spaces in the entire area of Redfern. I think it's a matter of fairness that the Church focuses on religious activity, not incorporating other businesses in a holy place. What next, a car washing business on site?
