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

Justin Simon commented

Strongly support this development. The attitude of some of the responses being sent against this is really troubling, whether it’s saying all residents will be “schizophrenics and drug addicts”, or that “there is already plenty of affordable housing in other suburbs. Stay away from our area and go ruin another.” The Inner West should be a lot more tolerant of difference and people in need.

Further, the entitlement people in one of the best serviced public transport LGAs in the city seem to think they have to street parking is wrong. If you want a dedicated parking space, move to one of the many places that come with one, otherwise accept it’s a roll of the dice and certainly don’t block developments for poorer people who’ll disproportionately be using public transport.
