In Chippendale NSW on “S96(2) Extend trading hours...” at 21-21A Shepherd Street Chippendale NSW 2008:

Jarrod commented


As a resident of Shepherd Street and owner of two residential houses there, I strongly object to this proposal. Shepherd Street is currently a quiet residential street (with the exception of pubs on intersections with George Street and Cleveland St).

As it stands, from where I live (in-between 55 and 32 Shepherd St) I can already hear noise from bars up until 10-11pm or so, after which there is usually a flood of patrons leaving the premise and walking directly past my front door (and bedroom). As it stands, I can't get to sleep because of noise until the local bars close.

The problem with the 2am closing time is that the challenge I experience (inability to sleep until bars close and patrons go home) will now be extended until the early hours of the morning. This is unacceptable as far as I'm concerned.

I do not mind development on Shepherd St provided that it does not lead to disturbances until such an early hour. A 10 or 11pm closing is fine but a 2am closing is too extreme.

This proposal will destroy the mood of what is currently a beautiful residential street. Please do not allow noise after 10 or 11am on a weekday (and perhaps 12 or 1am on a Saturday).

Kind Regards,
