In East Perth WA on “Proposed change of use to...” at 98-100 Brown Street East Perth WA 6004:

Janice Calcei commented

We have been owners in Brown St since 2000. Contrary to what one of the respondents has said above, not all property owners in Brown St were notified of this development. Most information was received by word of mouth and community email only a few days ago.

Our concerns are similar to those expressed above:
1. In the past we have been notified by the Council of proposed change in the area but this has not been the case with the plans for 98 -100 Brown St. This would be a significant change in what is now mainly a residential street and it deserves wider community consultation. The communication seems to have been ad hoc with some residents/owners being contacted but not others. How was this decided?
2. Parking has always been very restricted in this street. Finding enough parking for residents and visitors at nights and weekends has become more and more difficult.
3. The blend of fairly low key commercial activity and residential premises that we bought into has worked well, busy during the week but quiet on the weekends. As many respondents have already suggested, there are other locations already developed and more suited to hospitality activity.
4. It doesn't seem to make commercial sense for a hospitality business to set up in a largely residential location. Are there plans to rezone and redevelop other sites near this location?
