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

Clare Darroch commented

We have confirmed with the inner west council today, that this headline was an error: it is an application for a 10 room boarding house.

I object to the development application of a 10 room Boarding House at 40 Bishop st, Petersham.

We are a quiet community street, with the majority of residents being young families or elderly and long term residents.
This street has been peaceful for a long time, and welcoming to families that choose to live here. Another boarding house will completely change this for all residents in the area. We are already home to a number of affordable housing options in the surrounding streets and believe that the balance is good without need for further change.
There is not capacity for a 10 room boarding house due to impact on the street with parking, rubbish, and noise pollution, as per the previous objections.
This is a family street and community. The development and it’s use must fit in with the street, as is the case for all renovation applications that have had to adhere to these rules in the past.
I am strongly opposed to this development application.
