In Arncliffe NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 17 Belmore Street, Arncliffe NSW 2205:

James Norris commented

I am not against development -in many instances it is beneficial. The problem with the proposed development at 17 Belmore St. Arncliffe is that it is not a suitable development for this area.!!
The surrounding shops & business in the immediate area (Firth St./Arncliffe Station) are 2 storey early century buildings -I can remember when there was talk of restoring these older buildings as they do represent historical significance -in fact if done well this could be very beneficial to the suburb of Arncliffe (a bit of 'spit & polish' would do Arncliffe no harm). The proposed development is far too big for this narrow one way thoroughfare as correctly pointed out by 'James D'. Solely for this reason & the fact the proposed development will be 5 storeys + 3 levels basement parking means that any normal human being on the basis of common sense would deem this development to be unsuitable for the area! I also find questionable the goal of the developer; To me this looks like a cheap and nasty boarding house 'dressed up' with a commercial space & few apartments thrown into the mix. Also there are no documents to view. ie. designs, parking management plans, benefits to community etc I note that demolition has already begun on a Sunday -this follows the trend of past unfavorable developments that were plagued with issues from start to finish. Therefore for the above outlined reasons and in conjunction with fellow concerned residents I deem the current proposal at 17-19 Belmore Street Arncliffe should be rejected.
