In Marrickville NSW on “Demolition of all existing...” at 182 Victoria Road Marrickville NSW 2204:

Claire Croumbie-Brown commented

This is a serious over development which will have a seriously adverse impact on the local area.
The first issue is that Marrickville cannot support 2350 sq metres of retail space. There are empty shops peppered along Marrickville Rd. Retail needs to be consolidated on Marrickville Rd and supported to develop. To disperse the retail area of Marrickville to Victoria Rd will be destructive to Marrickville and also make the traffic on Victoria Rd very problematic.
The second issue is the amount of traffic that this oversized development with a minimum of 270 cars would impose on the local area. Sydenham Rd and Victoria Rd are already under significant pressure with traffic stacked up like a car park during peak hours and Saturdays.
The third issue is that this moves small local industry away from the area. This is unhealthy for Marrickville.
Finally where are the details on this development.
