In Perth WA on “Proposed Demolition of...” at 159 Claisebrook Road, Perth, WA, 6000:

Matthew Price commented

To whom it may concern:

Whilst I am not directly opposed to the redevelopment, as the Director of PerthWeb Pty Ltd which owns the block/building next door at 5 Coolgardie Terrace I do have some concerns that the developer and the Council need to consider.

During construction of the new commercial & residential development on the corner of Coolgardie Tce & Lord St, access to Coolgardie Terrace has been a major problem. Frequently the builders hinder access to the Terrace (also blocking Summers St with deliveries frequently) and there is usually no street parking to be found for at least 200m around our property, affecting us and other businesses nearby. The levels of dust and waste have also frequently been quite high, with littering even by builders eating their lunches having been an issue. I did let the Council know about this last issue however, and that seems to have improved.

Obviously with another development in the same Terrace, the Council will need to address traffic and parking issues to avoid further disruption to businesses in the area.

There are also some issues in relation to the construction itself I am concerned about. The current building sits right on the shared property border with our property, meaning one wall is right next to our car parking area and emergency exit lane, and this wall also sits within centimetres of our building wall elsewhere. Hence I am concerned about possible lack of access to our emergency exit lane, and damage due to problems like vibration and subsidence issues along this border. The building also has an asbestos roof which will require careful management in removal. Finally given the proximity of development, dust and noise are likely to be an issue and I would like to know what plans are in place to manage this issue.

Thankyou for your time.
