Jayden D. commented

This DA for boarding house accommodation with short-term residents contribute to the 'backpacker' style boarders and fuel the noisy/alcohol/drug-fueled 'undesirables' stigma Maroubra residents so desperately wants to avoid or remove.
I want to qualify all the above comments concerning safety and increase in crime in concentrated mainly in Maroubra within Randwick, are government statistics from the 'Incidents of crime recorded by the NSW Police Force by Local Government Area'. This is a disturbing upward trend in various crimes that Randwick Council needs to take seriously and make active decisions to curb and reduce.....ie My young family with 2 small kids needs to feel safe, please don't add fuel to the fire and REJECT this DA proposal.

Facts and figures do not lie. Particularly worrying is the increase of 'Possession and/or use of other drugs Up 26.7% and Transport regulatory offence Up 41.8% is particular relevant now with more congestion and over development in Maroubra.
