    I am concerned that this development proposal will set a new precedent for Charles street of a 3 story non-residential complex which is too large. I am also concerned that there will be further negatives impacts of increased demand for on street parking which is already difficult for resident to find at times due to the number of taxis that congregate around the centre. Finally I am concerned that the noise level will increase, particularly in the evenings with people talking loudly as the come and go to the centre. The majority of residencies on Charles street have main bedrooms right at the front of properties.

    My worry is that this development will likely exacerbate an already difficult parking situation on Charles street and the adjacent streets. It currently is frequently difficult to find a spot. I refer you to a parking study carried out in Erskineville in 2012, that suggests the mosque is at least partly responsible for the difficulty.
    I would object also to the scale and context of the development in that a sizeable 3 story non residential building that fronts onto the pathway is not the precedent that I would like to see set in what is otherwise a 1-2 story, quiet residential street.
    Thank you
