In Chatswood NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 18 Freeman Road, Chatswood NSW 2067.:

Fang Hu commented

I am a resident of 16 Freeman Road. I am strongly against this application. I hope the applicant can answer the below questions:

Why does the applicant plan to build this boarding house in our quiet residential area? IMO, it is so wired. Not only to people who live here, but also to students who may move in.

How much does the applicant care about our community? Have they evaluated the impacts to our community? Or, have they done any survey to the people who live here?

Why does the applicant think we may need another small boarding house after we have already got 12-level big boarding house nearby train station?

How can this building project benefit Chatswood residents, in particular the residents who live on Freeman and Eddy road?

We know all people who live in our current neighborhood cherish our peaceful community and environment. Any reason makes the applicant believe students (in particular international students) will care about our community as us?

For building a boarding house in residential area, my biggest concern is who are going to manage students' behavior outside of house? We know that normally boarding house rules only focuses on managing students' in-house behavior.

Who are going to take the liability to resolve the conflicts between residents and students in future? I believe there will be many conflicts coming later if this application is approved.
