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

Dino Angelini commented

I’m writing to strongly oppose the development application of a 10-room boarding house at 40 Bishop Street Petersham.
The development would have a hugely negative impact on the infrastructure, in the forms of traffic, light pollution, noise pollution and a degradation of the area and its heritage. AS well as this, I have strong issue with the following listed items quoted from the statement of environmental effects. The development:
- Maintains the existing urban character
- Will not result in noise levels inappropriate to a residential area
- Does not require a social impact statement as the proposed development has capacity for less than 20 residents (Quoting 19 residents)
- Will have a positive social impact for the Petersham community
- Design retains the built character of the area and will not impact on the existing residential uses
- Onsite carparking at a rate of 1 per caretaker and 0.25 spaces per boarding room is anywhere near adequate
- Will have a positive impact on the public domain as the proposal is consistent with the character of the area
