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

Rollo commented

Developers and supporters can pretend to keep their heads in the sand dreaming this development will bring only students to the area. The reality is boarding houses are where drug addicts, schizophrenics and released prisoners can get temporary accommodation while on the waiting list for social housing, not being suitable to rent privately or through other means if affordable housing, and boarding house owners don't exactly have the best reputation for running such properties. As long as the money keeps coming in, they won't care who's in there and what they're doing. A 10 room 2 level boarding house does not belong in very small and quiet suburban streets such as Jarvie Ave and Bishop St. The previous owners of this property would be rolling in their graves in shame and anger if they knew what the plans were for the home they lived in for a near half century.
