    I live a across the road from this property, its a small narrow court, with lots of small children. We don't get much traffic as its off the main roads, its a very narrow street with barely enough room for two cars to pass next to each other, let alone the limited street parking for residents let alone guests. We certainly don't need/want more traffic, beside the safety concerns and limitations on space issues. Almost every house in the court has small children who walk to school which is only a couple of blocks away.My drive way is opposite this house , having this property subdivided is completely unprecedented in this area, all blocks in the court and surrounding properties are family blocks and all have yards and save access. Adding more traffic and congestion is not necessary and unsafe . There are lots of larger and more accessible properties which could be subdivided, a small residential block in a small quiet narrow court is not appropriate and is nonsensical.

    I would like to object to this proposal, this is a very small yard for a second dwelling to be built here. The houses in this area all have good size backyards, it will stand out and look out of place as the back yard is on the side of the property and can be seen from the road. This will devalue the rest of the properties in the court. l look out my lounge room straight at the house, it will be like looking out at squashed in units that won’t match ( as the house was built 27 years ago)
    The court is very narrow, there is no room for extra cars or visitors to park now, especially in front of number 1 as it is on a curve in the road, and will create traffic issues getting in and out of the court.
    The court has a lot of young children who play out in the court, having another dwelling will bring more traffic into the court.
    It is not appropriate for a second dwelling to be built in this location.
