In Alexandria NSW on “Stage 1 development...” at 163-173 McEvoy Street Alexandria NSW 2015:

ALEX PEARSON commented

I write with reference to proposal D/2017/238 for the creation of 145 units + commercial premises on McEvoy Street, Alexandria.

As long term residents of the area {12+ years}, we understand the concept of creating a new city centre in Green Square, but please ask council to try and retain the original charm, look and community feel in the surrounding suburbs including Alexandria. This particular part of Alexandria is a peaceful and relatively quiet area and the continual addition of mass produced and cheaply made apartments is going to change the area negatively. Having to deal with the billion dollar lemon aka Westconnex is already depressing enough without more people being put into tacky apartments.

The size and scale of this DA is grossly unnecessary and a greedy grab by developers to sell as many units as possible and make a fortune without considering families that already live in the area.

I strongly object to the size and scale of this proposal and ask you consider the lives of people who live in the area.
