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

Robynne Hayward commented

I sent this in reply to an email from the council apologising for the website not working -they said it was fixed on the 8th but even so the period for objections should be extended and they should ensure DA supporting docs are made available as soon as they are received.

I hope that the period for commenting or objecting to this horrendous DA will be extended to allow for the fact that no one has been able to see the supporting documents until a few days ago. This is totally unacceptable.
Please do not approve this DA. There are so many unleased shops already in Marrickville and Illawarra Rds, also the extended Metro, more retail space is not needed. The proposed height is totally out of character for the area, shadowing will make Wicks Park unappealing, traffic in the area is already out of control, and there are already too many future slum apartments in this area.
When will this Council start to consider the desires of the local population rather than the greed of developers who seem to have an unhealthy hold on the Inner West Council. It surely should be in the interest of council members to increase the appeal of the local environment in Marrickville rather than turn it into an unliveable congested and over-developed future ghetto.

I wish the council would consider the quality of the apartments they are approving. There are some very shoddy ones in the Sydenham area, such as one in unwins bridge rd where the slum landlord refused to fix the lift and the air conditioner, both of which stopped working shortly after the tenants moved in.
