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

Nicole Grant commented

I am writing to address the proposed DA for a 10 room boarding house at 40 Bishop St Petersham.
This proposal allows for 19 residents (max of 2 in each room) at this location. The main issue in the area with these additional people will be a lack of parking and increased traffic.

Parking: There are only 4 car spaces allocated in the proposal. Parking is already an issue in Bishop St and the additional tenants will increase this problem. There is also limited parking in Jarvie Ave.

Traffic: Jarvie St, is a very narrow st and additional traffic will make it more difficult for residents to navigate the street.

In addition to these issues which will directly affect the local residents, Petersham already has 38 registered boarding houses (http://parkspr.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au/BoardingHouse.aspx). Where is the evidence that we need more?

I am opposed to this application and hope that Marrickville council take the concerns of the residents seriously.
