In Erskineville NSW on “PAN-76964Alterations to...” at 1-3 Swanson Street Erskineville NSW 2043:

I would like to object to this development application. The building already exceeds the allowable FSR; I don't see why exceeding it further to encourage further "gaming" (read: gambling) activities is in the public interest.

The application states: "The proposed development involves additional floor area added to the gaming room and does not generate additional patron capacity but rather allows for improved amenity with greater spacing between the gaming machines."

How could additional space dedicated to gaming activities NOT result in additional patron capacity in the gaming area? The reason the pub would undertake this effort is this is to extract more money from more patrons. That is not in the public interest, it is quite the opposite.
