In Marrickville NSW on “To hold a cross cultural...” at 142 Addison Road Marrickville NSW 2204:

Luke Marinovich commented

I am a resident of Addison Road, and wish to object to this DA. I support and enjoy the Sunday markets, but consider that an additional event every Saturday for two years would be an unreasonable inconvenience to local residents. I take issue with several statements in the DA:

1. Contrary to the DA’s statements downplaying this issue, the proposed event would have an adverse impact on traffic and parking around the Community Centre, and this is a significant burden for the community.
2. The Community Centre is serviced by only one bus route, and in the words of the application, “two train stations, Newtown and Stanmore, are a half hour walk away”. The DA does not reflect the reality that public transport options are not utilised by most people travelling to the centre, hence the abundance of cars on Sundays.
3. Our home is by no means the closest to the Centre, but we can clearly hear performances from the Hall when they occur. I believe that the application underestimates the acoustic impact on local residents.
