In Leichhardt NSW on “Residential redevelopment...” at 40-76 William Street Leichhardt NSW 2040:

Connie Tirabosco commented

My husband and I have recently moved into the area (William Street) and have been struck by the traffic congestion and the limited opportunities for street parking at virtually any time of the day. Access to the City West Link is slow for many hours each day, even though we are only one street away. We are concerned that a development of the size proposed on the Metro Storage site will severely exacerbate the current traffic problems as well as the already limited parking in the surrounding streets.

The construction of 186 units is an extraordinarily large number for this site. The amount of excavation to build at least 2 floors of underground parking will be significant and have a direct impact on adjoining properties to the site. If, as indicated on the drawings currently submitted, the William Street roadway is designated a flood affected area, then Council must exercise great care before approving a huge development which could expose residents to flooding in the case of extreme weather events.

In addition, depending on the height of the development, it will affect the light and general amenity of the adjoining residences.

We urge Council not to approve a development of the scale proposed.
