In Arncliffe NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 30 Firth Street, Arncliffe NSW 2205:

R Ramzan commented

I object to this proposed development as it is not in keeping with the heritage character of the existing building façade nor considers the surrounding heritage buildings.

The BAYSIDE WEST PRECINCTS 2036 plan published by NSW Department of Planning and Environment | August 2018 states that Design Excellence will be a consideration for new developments: "The rezoning of Arncliffe and Banksia Precincts will include a design excellence provision to ensure new buildings achieve the highest standard of architectural, urban and landscape design. All new buildings will be assessed against design excellence principles, buildings over 3 storeys will be subject to review by an independent design review panel, and all buildings over 12 storeys will undergo a design competition process. Council’s DCP will also include further design guidance"

Can Council please advise if this proposed development will be assessed as stated?

There is no consideration of the historical significance of the street front of the site itself or the heritage listed sites in its direct vicinity including:
- Arncliffe Post Office (Lot 1, DP 1000369 is listed as a heritage site of local significance)
-Arncliffe Railway Station Group (Part Lot 1, DP 1033288 is listed as a heritage site of state significance)

The Rockdale Local Environmental Plan 2011 states that heritage concerns are to be listed in any proposal where development occurs on land that is located in the vicinity of heritage listed sites.

There is nothing in the current application that considers the local heritage as required by Rockdale Local Environmental Plan 2011'to conserve the environmental heritage of Rockdale'.
