123 Ray Road Epping NSW 2121
I strongly object to any proposal to build a 2 to 3-storey boarding house on any street zoned as residential precinct. In this case for 123 Ray Street, how could it be appropriate or justifiable for a boarding house development especially when the immediate neighbourhood are all single/double-storey residential dwellings? Firstly the lot size is of a standard lot no larger than the neighbouring lots. Surely we need to consider the substantial impact to the privacy of the surrounding neighbours if such boarding house were to be built. The peaceful, quiet and friendly neighbourhood will forever be lost following the arrival of a group of young and mostly short term visitors (be it locals or foreigners) in the neighbourhood. The increase of mainly young, transient and temporary house guests / tenants will also greatly affect the residences around them through higher traffic count, and car & noise pollution typically associated with over-crowdedness. I also question whether such a boarding house development is a wise project under the current COVID/pandemic concerns especially when overcrowding in confined areas has been attributed to the recent outbreak.
