    Retreat street is very small street. Opposite is an apartment block with balcony over look to Retreat street. Glenroy hotel already has an outdoor area which is the courtyard with really small amount of customer. Never see them full before. Adding outdoor on Retreat street will create noise and interrupt privacy if residents. I disagree with this application.

    I live on the apartment block across from Glenroy Hotel on Retreat St.

    I wholly object this proposal due to the following reason:

    1. Increase of noise level coming from the hotel, the beer garden have already created enough noise as it is
    2. The danger of having intoxicated patron of the hotel loitering around the entrance to the apartment parking area.
    3. Street parking in this area is very rare, this area is already home to several gyms and cafes and taking away the several parking spots currently available will just create more inconvenience to car owners without a designated parking space in their building.

    Thanks

    I think the application should be granted. I am a resident in the area, although not immediately effected by any potential noise. I am supportive of more opportunities for Al fresco dining and drinking. The proposed hours appear to be sensible and the application would increase the amenity of the neighbourhood.

    Hi ,
    I don't think this is required . The existing outdoor dining space is seldom full . I think in this instance it will be outdoor drinking space and will negatively effect those living on the quieter side. Also there does need to be some consideration given to the parking . Yes all the business have done it tough but some of these areas that are being allocated are being used only for a few hours a day and in some instances on many days not used at all . I go to this pub a bit and it has more than its fair share of intoxicated people leaving onto Botany road . Not sure it's fair to residents to add to that . It's a balancing act and on balance should be rejected .

    I am in the same situation as the comment below and agree wholeheartedly. The application should not go ahead:

    I object to this application due to the potential increase in level of noise, privacy concern for residents in the apartment building, and space in a small street.
