In Griffith NSW on “Change of use to boarding...” at 44 Marcus St, Griffith 2680 NSW:

Community member commented

The property 44 Marcus Street, Griffith has been and still is being used as a boarding house since purchased by the current owned in September 2016. The occupants are primarily international persons of Chinese background who are believed to be employed at Baiada Poultry, Hanwood NSW. The dwelling house is at times is occupied by up to 8-10 persons with the same amount of vehicles parked at the dwelling and curb side location at times. Shift work is often around midnight, with vehicles coming and going from the location making noise.

Advertisemens have been made on online site Gumtree where the beds and bedrooms m have been offered to be rented out for 3-6 month periods at a high fee. The house and gardens are often neglected and unkept, lowering the standards in the neighbourhood and deterring new home buyers. It may even contribute to lowering he areas real estate value. This current setup is a cashflow for the owner and has been operating as a halfway house without council approval. I oppose the application for the above mentioned reasons which I hope are considered.
