In Invermay TAS on “Visitor Accommodation -...” at 87 Lindsay Street Invermay TAS 7248:

Julie Lawson commented

I write regarding DA0660/2015, and wish to express my concerns about the visual impact of this development on the area. I have a house in Invermay which is currently tenanted, but which I intend to live in in the future.

The bulk and scale of this development seems to be out of proportion with the area. Whilst the silos are quite tall, the building increases the size of them and additionally adds bulk to the building envelope. It is an overdevelopment of a site, and is not suitable for the area, given that pretty much the whole of Launceston faces towards this building.

I have no problems with the traffic and parking matters, which seems to have occupied most of the development application paperwork.

While it would be beneficial to have new accommodation and business function options in Launceston, this can be achieved on a more low-rise scale than what is proposed.

Please don't let Launceston become overdeveloped like Sydney.

Thank you for your time.
