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

Steven K commented

I strongly object to DA 382/2019
As the co-owner of a house on Wise Street and a Maroubra resident for the last 32 years, I have seen my fair share of developments around Maroubra Junction. This is my first objection to a Development Application within Randwick City.
My main concern is the amount of available parking spots around Wise Street. I see vehicles belonging to residents in the flats/apartments on Anzac Parade and Ferguson Street parked on Wise Street on a daily basis.
That includes the 'Rent My Car' minivans and the odd commercial truck that are a pain to navigate around.
I understand we all live in a capitalist society but I don't see why someone has to inject disharmony into a well established community which I considered as already 'space-deprived'.
As the proposal had said: Boarding House. Will I be seeing more garbage dumped outside the property as I see the constant dumping of rubbish outside the block of apartments on Ferguson Street as you approach Pacific Square?
I am not against 'Affordable Rental Housing' but I believe 41 Robey Street is not the proper place for a boarding house. I just don't know what is going through the brains of the developer. Is he/she trying to turn the boarding house into a tourist hot-spot? Or Is he/she trying to make a quick profit from the cheap accommodation?
Making a profit is not a problem but how you make that profit is open to discussion.
I strongly recommend the Planning Committee reject the development application.
