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

Peter Franc commented

I object to the alteration and additions to existing dwelling including first floor and change of use to a 10 room boarding house with associated parking at rear at 40 Bishop Street PETERSHAM NSW 2049.

As a newly arrived resident with a growing family, both Bishop and Jarvie Streets have a unique character which would be irreversibly changed with the proposed development. Care should be taken to preserve the culture of the area and let it naturally develop, rather than forcing drastic change into the middle.

Beyond the issues of limited parking, cultural fit and overdevelopment, affordable housing is already established in the surrounding streets, and the development of the Petersham RSL and apartments in the surrounding streets will already stress the infrastructure.
