In Lewisham NSW on “To construct a 6 part 9...” at Longport Street Lewisham NSW 2049:

Kelly Wratten commented

9 storeys? The Council's 2011 Development Control Plan for the Lewisham Precinct is quite clear in that there is to be a 6 storey height limit. What is the purpose of having a DCP if it is to be ignored some 4 years later. It seems common place now for developers to submit plans that are outside these guidelines and for Council to approve. Voluntary Planning Agreements which equate to large sweetener payments are now the norm.

Why would consideration be given to a plan that clearly grossly exceeds this one point alone?

The area where this development is already a traffic nightmare, being right next to the rail line, where there is already oversized developments courtesy of Ashfield Council. The traffic situation has always been difficult but has been worsened by recent construction in the area.
