In Kirrawee NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 11 Minerva Street Kirrawee NSW 2232:

Simon commented

Aside from similar concerns to those already expressed regarding a boarding house in this general location, I take issue with the following particulars of this application:
* there are 12 rooms (including 5 which show multiple beds on the architectural plans) but only 6 onsite car spaces. This is grossly inadequate. Minerva Street is a major point of access for Acacia Road/Princess Highway and the demand for on street parking from this development will create more congestion issues in a street that is already congested/plagued with traffic issues
* the design including details like balcony pillars is antiquated and not in keeping with the existing area (including new dual occupancy developments in the surrounding area). Frankly it will be an eye sore unless the facade design is significantly over-hauled to a modern standard.
* privacy issues for adjoining properties associated with the huge number of windows. Consistent with Councils policy for development, all windows should be frosted or a minimum sill height of 1.6m imposed due the the significant overlooking along the entire boundary on both sides of the property.
