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

I oppose this overdevelopment to the existing properties. I have been an inner west resident for nearly 15 years, and the recent years of over development of the area is becoming too much for the existing residents of the area. The new property development will not create affordable housing.The current over stuffing of more people into the small area of the inner west with congested the roads, where we once had 2 lanes of to travel thru, its now common place to have a single lane of traffic for each direction, hampering constant traffic flow.

As it currently stands the existing inner west council cannot adequately provide for the current constituents and its infrastructure. Roads cannot be expanded as there is no room. The inner west has always been hospitable to those who move into the neighbourhood, but the closeness of the neighbourhood is slowing eroding due to the over-commercialisation of the area. The inner west is at capacity as it is in 2018.
