I totally disagree with the construction of a ‘ Boarding House ‘ on this location . As units and apartment buildings are failing to sell developers seem to be looking to another way of making money .
A boarding house is supposed to provide budget accommodation for people on a lower income . Supposedly . Mostly these rooms are let out at $400 per week ! This is unaffordable for people on pensions and low incomes . A two bedroom apartment can be rented for a little more .
The token of a ‘ live in manager ‘ Is not viable . Will the manager be supervising residents 24/7 . I think not . And with so many proposed occupants who will make sure there is no anti social behaviour, noise and other problems with a multi room boarding house .
Another major problem will be garbage disposal. How many bins and where will they be located ?
I foresee great problems ahead for this Tiny charming area of Carlton,should this development proceed .
