In Potts Point NSW on “Alterations to the existing...” at 32-34 Orwell Street Potts Point NSW 2011:

As a resident living in the building opposite The Roosevelt, I STRONGLY oppose this application.

I have lived in Gowrie Gate for 4 years, and have already had to move apartments in my building once due to noise issues when another late-trading bar opened a few years back ('Dear Saint Eloise').

While The Roosevelt is often noisy, with management NEVER bothering to move on their intoxicated patrons that linger outside and drunkenly shout, I have never complained because I don't want to be a grump. Besides, it's not quite at the level of noise as Dear Saint Eloise.

However, with the addition of music and extended hours for the restaurant, I believe this would change the dynamic entirely and it would be incredibly disruptive for myself and my neighbours (not to mention the homeless people who sleep there because it's close to the Wayside Chapel).

I understand the need for small bars and late-night trading. But we're not talking about Kings Cross here. This is the other side of the Cross, where a highly-dense residential area begins. Why should we have to have to cop this?
