In Maroubra NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 1038 Anzac Parade Maroubra NSW 2035:

Vincent Burke commented

I urge Randwick City Council to refuse the recent DA proposal (DA/144/2019) for a 40 room boarding house on the following grounds:

Privacy/ outlook
The 3 storey building will mean that residents of the proposed development can look directly into the surrounding private gardens, living rooms and bedrooms of 1030-1036 and the neighboring residential buildings. This will cause issues around privacy,security, noise, safety, violations of light easements in a neighborhood that already experiences regular incidents of anti social behavior stimulated by alcohol and drug abuse.
The proposed plan categorizes the existing tress on the site as being 'small'. This is a is a blatant lie, given some of them are 3 stories high and provide privacy and aesthetics which are in keeping with the South Maroubra area.

Noise/environmental impact on surrounding area
Construction on this scale will require large machinery, deep excavation which will generate huge amounts of dust & pollution and noise impacting the main demographic of young families/ retirees which reside in this area.

Parking, traffic and congestion
The plan to provide 20 spaces to residents of the boarding house vs potentially 80 people requiring parking plus the manager of the 'boarding house' is preposterous and will cause a huge over spill into the surrounding streets and roads. The area currently suffers from a lack of parking spaces due to the neighboring Des Renford leisure Centre. The neighborhood is not adequately prepared for this influx of up to 80 residents given inadequate transport facilities and parking restrictions currently in place.
