In Maroubra NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 41 Robey Street Maroubra NSW 2035:

Sam commented

I would like to object to the DA 382/2019 for the proposal of a Boarding House on 41 Robey Street Maroubra, for the following reasons:

1. Building a Boarding House at this location is not in character with other buildings in the neighbourhood. All the properties along Robey Street and Ferguson Street (from Maroubra road to Beauchamp Road) is predominately all single story houses with the odd double storey house, and 2-3 high density properties on Robey Street near Maroubra Road at the Junction.
2. Onsite parking: The development proposes 31 boarding rooms, but only 7 parking spaces for vehicles!! If I am correct, the SEPP standards say that .5 car space needs to be provides for every room, for every proposed DA Boarding House. This means they need to provide a total of 16 car spaces for this development to be compliant with the SEPP standards. Yes, the developers have made provision for 1 GoGet car share space, but what is if the majority of residents want to have their own car. Where will they all park? 7 car spaces will not be enough!
3. The developers have not done a traffic and parking survey for Robey Street and Ferguson Street.
4. Parking is already limited on Robey Street, Ferguson Street and Wise Street and would not be able to accommodate the extra amount of cars from this development due to their lack of car spaces provided for 31 boarding rooms.

In summary, the Boarding house is completely out of character with the surrounding area, for its purpose and it does not meet the SEPP standards for car spaces for 31 boarding rooms, not to mention limited car spaces on Robey Street and Ferguson Street.
