    I am concerned that 14 floors is too high for this area. It is out of keeping with close by buildings, and will not be in sync with the local area.

    There is a significant lack of parking for the proposed residence and supporting activity.

    I do not support this application.

    The proposed development is is at least twice and often three times the height other buildings in the vicinity. A 14 storey building on this main road will significantly alter the character of the area in a negative way, bringing the dehumanising feel of CBD skyscrapers to Darlington.

    I also reject the applicant's assertion that the "physical loss of St Michael’s College building will have no heritage impact". A sympathetic redevelopment of the site, incorporating reuse of the existing building as has been done to a number of other local sites recently, would retain the heritage aspects of the building and be more in keeping with the area.

    Thanks for considering my submission.
