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

Ashleigh commented

I am strongly against with this proposal.

As per previous comments, to have 10 room boarding house in this quiet area is ridiculous. When boarding/ affordable accommodation is already available throughout Petersham/ Marrickville (or is in progress of being built). Multiple affordable studios are empty and seeking tenants.

I live close to this property and watch the garbage trucks struggle to make it down Jarvie Ave. Adding additional cars parked on the street (due to lack of parking for number of boarders) will make this a nightmare. There is not enough available street parking on bishop street for current residents.

The additional first floor with communal rear balcony facing Javie Ave and being close to the rear of homes on Morgan Street is unacceptable. This will cause excess noise disturb neighbors. Especially when they is no manager on site to control what is actually happening in the communal areas.

I purchased my home in this area of petersham due to no multi dwellings, no huge high rises, for the original character houses of which Jarvie Ave is listed as a Heritage Conservation Area. We should be protecting our quiet character streets not rushing to develop them as soon as properties with larger blocks become available. There are not many areas/ streets like ours still left.
There are enough run down areas or industrial properties inner west which can be used for future multiple residences.

This development will decrease the value of my property and all others at the northern end of both Jarvie Ave, Bishop St and Morgan St.

To bring this loger accommodation to our street for 10 separate individuals will be impacting more than 10 already existing family homes.

I am more than happy to discuss my concerns further with Marrickville Council.
