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

Petrea Fellows commented

I am writing to lodge my objection to the proposed development of 40 Bishop Street, Petersham- DA201900247. As a resident of 28 Morgan Street Petersham for some 12 years, I know that this development is most unsuited to the specific area proposed. It will have a negative effect on already crowded parking, which suffers from the effects of units built on adjacent Duchros Street. The trickle down effect of this parking shortage impacts Morgan Street and Bishop Street. Furthermore the amenities, increased population and noise will greatly effect the lifestyle of existing residents in this area. The proposed additional storey will also look in on many properties in this built up residential area and greatly infringe on the privacy of residents. Finally it should be noted that Bishop Street and neighbouring Jarvie Avenue are exceptionally narrow streets and already require cars driving down the street to pull over to allow oncoming traffic to pass. This new development will dramatically increase traffic to this area and effect the family friendly quiet pocket characteristic of this neighbourhood.
