This DA must be a joke right?? How on earth can 40 boarding houses fit onto that land space? And how are they allowed to demolish a historical building (over 100 yrs old). How will this small area's infrastructure accommodate such a concentrated population increase without a serious traffic incident/fatality?

Why are the developers not exploiting the property in a positive way, leveraging the significant character potential of this area instead?

I suggest the council seriously rethink what they will permit for this application, considering the potential for a beautiful cafe/antique/boutique precinct. Arncliffe is perfectly placed given the federation style construction across the suburb. It would both increase revenue to the area as well as raise land value. This corner of Arncliffe is crying out for historically-sympathetic development.

I am a resident of Belmore St and strongly object to this appalling development application. Can the Council not show some respect and gumption like their northern counterparts (e.g., Kuring-Gai Council)? Or does the Southside only want to attract lower socio-economic residents and remain a "poor cousin".

It's time for our Council to step up and plan what is possible with such beautiful architecture simply sitting there. Because once it has gone, there is no return.
