In Eastwood NSW on “New four storey boarding...” at 598A Blaxland Rd Eastwood NSW 2122:

Barbara Buining commented

I wish to strongly object to the above proposal. This area is already medium density with a large number of home units, which in the past have been restricted to no higher than 3 stories. Just because it is classified as a boarding house, doesn't mean that most residents could have vehicles that will require on street parking.
I already see between 2 to 5 small commercial vans parking in my immediate low density area, often close to driveways which block vision for residents, and pose a danger to traffic when parked close to intersections. These vans are not owned by residents and are often parked for lengthy periods day and night. I have seen owners/drivers dropped off and picked up by friends afters parking.
The approve such density housing on a busy road near what is already a very busy intersection in peak hour is madness and will only add to the congestion of our already suburban streets and available public transport.
