In Marrickville NSW on “To demolish existing...” at 2 Station Street Marrickville NSW 2204:

I strongly oppose this development due to the likely traffic, parking and overcrowding impacts to the local area; and also have noted two DA non-compliance issues.

The DA parking space allocation appears to be non-compliant with the Marrickville Development Control Plan 2011 (MDCP 2011). I am quoting directly from the DA Traffic Report: "a total of 42 spaces are required for the proposed development to comply with Council’s current DCP. The development proposes to provide a total of 21 parking spaces (17 residential spaces and 4 commercial spaces)." Please note that this is only half the amount of parking required to comply with MDCP 2011.

The Floor Space Ratio (FSR) for the development is also non-compliant with Marrickville Council LEP planning map information. The FSR for the development is almost twice the council FSR limit of 3:1 at 5:68:1.

I find it extremely convenient for the developer that Marrickville Council has amended the maximum building height for the affected lots to 26m, the exact height of the proposed building. Generally, B2 Local Centre Marrickville LEP landing zoning deems a maximum building height of 20m for other nearby B2-zoned lots.

I also noticed that the developer has 'dedicated' 1 Leofrene Avenue to Marrickville Council as parkland space. I presume this means all Marrickville Council rate payers will have to foot the bill for park maintenance once the development has finished. It should be the responsibility of the building owners corporation to maintain all surrounding grounds/parkland included in the DA once the development has been completed.
