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

Leonie Walker commented

I too object to this proposed development for all the reasons that have already been put forward. On all sides of the proposed development there are residential apartments with no available buffer zone from the inevitable noise and busyness of people coming and going, not to mention the noise pollution and litter/odour type pollution that would be generated from a bar/restaurant/entertainment environment, and late into the nights. Where are people going to park? Already parking is limited and often problematic for residents in the street. As already noted, Brown St and surrounding streets are narrow and in peak periods the area can already become congested. As already noted, the current mix of commercial and residential co-exist without negative impact, allowing the residents quality of life and quiet after work hours and on weekends.
It is of great concern that only a few local residents had been made aware of this proposed development or of the re-zoning of the address in question to allow for such a development. Why is this so? Also of great concern is the possibility that there has been a lack of due process and a possible conflict of interest with one of the planning committee members having some connection to the proposed development. There appears to be a lack of transparency combined with a disregard of the interest of the local residents.
