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

Joao Correia commented

Petersham is a very unique suburb. It is diverse, eclectic and we residents of Jarvie Avenue are proud of its personality. It needs to be protected. This is a letter of objection, and a request that you deny the application regarding this proposed development, for the following reasons:
Jarvie Avenue and Bishop street are small streets where development proposals should be considered very carefully. I believe this development would ruin the character of the area and overwhelm it.
Jarvie Ave also has heritage listed conservation order on all the house facades the protection of this should be supported by the council.
Jarvie Avenue is a one lane streest and can not accommodate even small increases in traffic not to mention the increase noise and disturbance resulting from this development.
There is little parking available already for residents
We are also very concerned about the privacy for myself and the sounding residents.
The current infrastructure cannot cope with the existing residents.
We believe It will impact directly on us and our neighbours specifically in the forms of traffic, light pollution, noise pollution and a degradation of the area and its heritage.
We request the council work harder to motivate and encourage these developers to respect the area its residents and reject the boarding house development.
