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

Lara Miller commented

I strongly oppose this development application of 40 Bishop Street Petersham, into a 10 room boarding house.

I live in a property on Bishop Street with no on-site parking and experience the lack of parking on Bishop Street on a daily basis. The street is already so congested that I often end up having to park far away from my property on neighbouring streets as there is no parking available on Bishop Street. It is ridiculous to consider the addition of a 10 room boarding house on what is already a heavily congested area for parking.

In addition to this, I strongly agree with the other residents that this would increase traffic on the street in general and destroy the residential feel of the street.

The property will also be overlooking neighbouring family homes, which is a complete invasion of privacy.

In addition, the higher volume of bins on the street on collection days would further congest parking and likely increase the pest problem which is already a big problem in the area.

Please don’t ruin our street with this ridiculous development. I am strongly opposed.
