In Rozelle NSW on “Conversion of existing...” at 50-58 Evans Street Rozelle NSW 2039:

Keith Goodman commented

I am not necessarily for or against this development but I would like to express this observation as a resident of 20 years: This development will lead to NO hardware shops in Balmain/Rozelle forcing residents and trademan to either shop online or travel by car or public transport to Glebe, Haberfield or Alexanderia for hardware supplies. NB: Council, rightly or wrongly, blocked the Bunnings development in Mullens st White Bay which is now in the Land & Environment court for review. If council approves this development but rejects the Bunnings development forcing residents and tradesman into cars or public transport to purchase hardware supplies doesn't this go against Councils Environmental and sustainable city policies? This also suggests that council does not really have an over arching planning strategy based on percentage of residential, commercial and open space zoning that comes under its duristriction but rather reviews each development application on a piece by piece process?
