In Petersham NSW on “Alteration and additions to...” at 40 Bishop Street Petersham NSW 2049:

Dr Neville Dawson commented

This development is too ludicrous for words. A once family large block to support 100 people is ridiculous. Jarvie Ave is a small, beautiful street and garbage bins alone in that street or along Bishop St will block up the existing small footpath for safe, comfortable walking and for residence of Jarvie Ave. The street infrastructure is just not capable of coping with this plan. There are heritage conservation orders on house facades in Jarvie Ave and any good council should not ignore these orders. The architectural vista and harmony of this suburban family street must be maintained at all cost. I’m sure not all 100 people live alone and the numbers could be almost doubled.
Parking is already congested in the area and this stupid over planning will only add to the existing problem. Will dogs and cats be permitted in the development? I hope not as there are many families in these streets street with family pets. More will not be welcomed by all existing owners in Bishop and Morgan Street.
I strongly appose this planning application on these and other grounds mentioned by other that I have read. Considerations including matter of health due to overcrowding of such a family block of land in the area must also be a priority. Basically I think this is a very poor idea and I strongly object to it.
