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

Dennis Rodrigues commented

I strongly oppose this development application as it would have a huge negative impact on the neighboring properties and the community.
The change from a residential home to a commercial boarding house does not fit in with the existing streetscape.
The plans do not seem to comply with council basic guidelines, there is no setback of the first floor wall from the boundary line on the south side of the building, what happened to having a setback of 900mm/1200mm from the boundary on extensions?
The addition of the first floor raises concerns as this will impede on the privacy of the surrounding neighbours backyards.
Street parking is already an issue in the area and to include a boarding house with 10 rooms and only 4 on site car spaces will increase the current problem.

I cannot understand how council has allowed it to get to this stage!
