Re proposed development Reference Number D/2017/238.

6 stories will not be sympathetic to this area of Alexandria, already being gutted by the governments Westconnex development. Too high, causing lack of privacy and over shadowing for neighbours, not enough services to accomodate the increased number of people, unless someone is going to upgrade sewerage/eater/ more regular street cleaning (haha, like that happens now)/buses/internet services. And despite the limited car spaces available, I can assure you the people with no car spaces will have cars and they will be parking them wherever they can, including in my driveway, in my neighbours driveway, on the street, which is about to become a clearway for a good part of the day.

I am also going to quote Katrina's comments, she succinctly voiced some of my concerns as well, so thank you Katrina.

"I am concerned that the Traffic Management report has not taken into consideration the impact of Westconnex which will bring the M4 and M5 link across this direct area from Sydney Park through Euston Road and King street.

I also note that there is no retail parking space and that the premises change from industrial to residential will push most of the new residential traffic volume (expected to be in excess of 300 additional people) to peak hrs. where previously this space was utilized to a lesser degree and within business hrs. only.

Both of these factors will mean that this proposal will create significant demand on resources such as road traffic, public transport management and parking which are currently utilizing 1.5 lanes of traffic to distribute over 20,000 vehicles P.A (Per RMS data - Euston Road / McEvoy Street). I propose that this volume of residential increase requires additional traffic management planning and further consideration.

Lastly I would like to understand what the intention is with regard to solar / light access, sound and boundary line fencing, there is limited reference to this within the documentation lodged and as part of the buildings and common space appear to rest directly against fence lines this will impact on the privacy, quality and quiet enjoyment of surrounding residents.".

Thank you for taking the time to read my submission.
