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

Linda Currie commented

Hi. I am against the proposed building of a boarding house at 41 Robey Street, Maroubra. I visit/stay in Wise Street on a regular basis and have done for over 20 years...I have an independent veiw as i am a non resident. I have friends and family who live in close proximity to this proposed site. This boarding house will be totally out of character because many surrounding houses are protected by Council and Law as heritage listed. This will dramatically change the feel and uniqueness of this neighbourhood visually. It is such a shame to build a modern, intrusive, large structure, amoungst these period homes. It would be devastating to look back with regret, which could have been avoided by building in a more suitable area from the start. Public are aware of all the problems associated with a boarding house, do you need this in
this unique area?. This needs substantial thought and consideration...prevention is better than cure surely.?..listen to the locals, observe and " take all blinkers off"...so the outcome and future is optimum and not just convenient, ideally be prevented and re-evaluated for another more suitable area . There should be no proposed boarding house without adequate carparking in an area that is already struggling for existing home owners to park anywhere near their homes. This in itself is a huge issue...and would never be considered with such little insight surely? Linda
