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

M.McCartney commented

I object to this DA for the following reasons: The bulk and scale is inappropriate for this location. The 14 cars entering and exiting the building onto a main artery road is unsafe and I would be surprised if Transport for NSW would allow this. The height is not compliant with the building controls nor is it in character with surrounding buildings. This large building will have a negative impact on the solar access for neighbouring properties. The box like design of the building will form a large heat bank which will contribute significantly to urban heating and its aesthetics are not in the public interest. There is insufficient open communal space for 44 people and I doubt a Social Impact Statement (not available on the website), if completed, would demonstrate there to be social merit in this DA. The deep soil space and set backs are inadequate to allow for tree planting to give screening, mitigate traffic noise and to contribute towards the City of Ryde's tree canopy. Please reject this DA.
