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

C.Stewart commented

We oppose the development of a 10 room boarding house at 40 Bishop Street because it is not in keeping with the scope of housing already present (these were also council guidelines we had to abide by when renovating our home), impact privacy by creating lines of sight into neighbours homes and backyards from the second story and increase already at-capacity street parking pressure. We already have residents parking in Bishop Street from other streets due to over development and inadequate on site parking. Council may have forgotten that Marrickville Oval is an amenity also attracting parking problems to Bishop Street as participants and spectators seek parking in surrounding streets during games and training 7 days a week.
This development application is an overuse of the site which degrades the charm and quality of 2 streets by overcrowding people, cars and impacting factors such as garbage collection. Approving the size and scope of this development and it's use will change this street permanently.
