    I am strongly against this DA as it will put enormous pressure on traffic and parking need to the already busy and congested Hurstville area. Also, as a resident living nearby, I am strongly concerned about the noise it will make from 3 am to 9 pm.

    It is a very bad idea and not in favour of local resident.

    Regards

    South Hurstville and surrounding suburbs are very sophisticated residential area, we have lots of lovely young kids running around and also a lot of respectful senior citizens living in these areas. Other than the very busy king George road, we are enjoying our safety, quietness and peace.We can't afford the heavy traffic due to the new constructions of the mosque,which is expected to facilitate over 30,000 people! Who is going to pay for the cost if some aged people could not get on the ambulance in pressures time because of our residence roads been blocked by the terrible traffic? How can we relax if our kids have no more playing spaces in front of our House due to double parking? How about the noise? would you like to cope with the noise start from 3 am while you still in sleep till night time? I would definitely say no!

    Please, please, please listen to the Australian people and do not build a mosque. I don't feel it is beneficial to the people who live here and will create more division. My vote hopefully will make you see sense in this matter.

    There is no good for the neighborhood around, as the it deteriorate the traffic condition and the noise will severely affect the people living around.
    I am strongly against this building plan. please take the local dwellers' opinion seriously.

    I am writing to express my objection against the above named development applicaion.

    I live in South Hurstville and on behalf of my family I would vote against the DA because of the following reasons:

    1. It will increase the traffic signficantly, which will cause great inconvenience to the local residence.

    2. The building will be 10 meters high, which will overshadow the surrouding dwellings

    3. There could be a large amount of visitors on the daily basis, which will affect the lifestyle of local residents

    If Council is insensitive to existing RATE PAYERS and decides to allow another jihad recruitment centre, make SURE no external speakers are allowed. NO noise should be heard from the boundary of the property.

    The council should insist on each apartment to have minimum 2 carparking spaces and further allowance for visitor carparks prior to issuing any permits of this nature. Please consider the impact on the street and the ripple on effects to the rest of the suburb from issuing permits of this nature. Carparking will overflow on to the street and will add to the congestion already present in this area. This will in one way or the other impact on house values in this area as it progressively becomes an urban slum.
    Is this the character of residence we wish to have for this suburb ? Personally I don't. I hope the council sees some sense into issuing building permits and ensures minimum mandatory carparks and other requirements are met so as to not impact on the neighborhood.

    Yu Feng commented

    The proposed structure will causes terrible traffic condition in the local area. Besides, the small amount of street parking places is not compatible with the large capacity of the structure. It will also cause significant disturbance to the life of local residents due to the noise generated seven days a week.

    Overall, I am strongly against this building plan, I hope that Kogarah council could listen to our voices and reject the proposal.

    From the documents submitted to council:

    Noise Assesment 150661-01L-DD Rev01 indicates that approximately 260 worshippers / students will be on site on Friday at 1pm.

    Traffic Assesment 15.418 indicates that 76 worshippers / students will be onsite on Fridays at 1pm.

    Obviously the real impact on traffic to the local area has been underestimated significantly. The traffic assesment should be reviewed and corrected according to the true number of worshippers / students that will be on site.

    Paul Gavin commented

    My understanding is that this is only one property being turned into eight properties. The problem of parking will be exacerbated by the steep nature of the property and people will be inclined to park on the narrow street rather than use the steep narrow driveway of the proposal. Additionally, the three storey proposal will reduce the amenity for neighbours in single storey properties. In addition, the proposed three storey buildings are on the east-west flight path for Essendon Airport which has some very large aeroplanes landing there. Even international flights regularly land at Essendon Airport.

    This is a residential area and the construction of the mosque will bring absolute change to the community and seriously affecting the residents nearby. 1. It is a busy area already closing to Hurstville and the increased amount of people accessing this area would deteriorate the traffic condition and cause dangers to the seniors and kids. Parking would be not possible on the streets due to non spots available. 2. The mosque will bring large amount of people from other areas which is a big security concern to the residents due to big number of people from other areas accessing the local area. 3 The noise and pollution caused by worshipping would totally ruin the life of the residents nearby. 4. The possible conflict and behavioural issue raised by the construction of the mosque would affect the peace of the residential community.( Eg: Residents complaining about the noise and being affected not resolved could be escalated to bigger issues).

  12. In Fitzroy VIC on “Part demolition and...” at 239-243 Johnston St Fitzroy VIC 3065:

    Graham Hill commented

    The historic theatre should be preserved and used appropriately.

    An 11 storey building would be totally out of character for the location (a height in excess of 2-3 storeys would be inappropriate).

    Proposals like this, Banco on Smith, 166 Gertrude (ex Manfax) etc, show no regard for the unique Fitzroy & Collingwood streetscapes and will rapidly destroy the very special character that draws people to live and visit here.

    the traffic of the area is already bad. Not many local goes to the mosque. it will cause so much noise and traffic. why not build a mosque in those area who have large population of Muslim

    I fully oppose this Masjid application. A Masjid is owned by Allah and can never be sold or demolished. By denying this application you are not denying people their right to worship as they can do this in a Musalla. (not owned by Allah).
    A Masjid is not just a "church" this is the centre of their ideology and its an ideology that is not a good fit for a democratic nation such as Australia.
    Currently there is 38 mosque proposals in australia in NSW and this many already built in NSW https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.708769922569516.1073741833.670842106362298&type=3
    I fully support every muslims right to pray in a musalla but Australia has a right to not support the islamic ideology and the mosque which is at the centre of it.

    Mike Young commented

    Building a Mosque in South Hurstville is either absurd or insidious as such proposal either completely ignores the demographic of the surrounding area or intentionally attempt to invading the cultural diversity of this area. I strongly disagree and recommend the applicants to submit their application to a more appropriate area with high Muslims population density.

    We do not think that constructing a place of worship at 849 King Georges Road, South Hurstville is a good idea.

    This location is very close to the intersection of Connells Point Road and King Georges Road (A3) and the intersection of Price High Way (A1) and King Georges Rd (A3). As you may know, many apartments/townhouses have been built recently around the neighbourhood. We are worried that any new church (or mosque, or temple etc.) of this nature might make existing heavy traffic condition even worse. Unless it could provide hundreds of new parking spaces, the proposed building will simply use up all streets parking around it. Moreover, it is close (< 1km) to the major parks in Kogarah council, Carss Bush Park and Poulton Parks (peters). It is also close to Hurstville South Public School (around 1km).

    We really need a peaceful and safe living environment!

    I'm a Catholic and I'm against the plan as it is not in line with my belief. It will also create anxiety to my children as they all go to Catholic schools. Besides the personal reason, Hurstville area is already very crowded and even hard to find parking during week days. A mosque is going to bring more crowd and traffic to the area. There are at least 3 high-rises being built at the moment and will bring at least another 2-3000 people to the area. Besides, I can't image how a Chinese dominated suburb could get along with Muslim society.

    Hurstville is getting too crowded and complicated these days, we can't afford to have this huge building in our residential area, noisy, even worse traffic and also potential safety issue. We definitely say NO to this project.

    I strongly against this proposal. South Hurstville and nearby suburbs are peaceful and quiet residential area. The traffic of Conells Point Road, King Georges Road and The Mall are busy enough especially during school peak hours. How many people in South Hurstville have benefit from this proposal? People attend this Mosque are mostly from other suburbs. It's not worth to approve this proposal to harm the benefits and harmony of local residents.

    Monica Cicele commented

    My commuity are very curious that why only quite a few residents received this proposal with giving such a shorter notice. Especially in this holiday season, lots people go to holiday. They may not have a chance to say "no" to this project before it get approved. Consider the amount of muslim people in our area, is it on your top priority to build it using tax payers money? Of course this will attacts muslim from other suburbs. And of course the traffic jam on the road will get worse than never. And the noise pollution within construction work and from the prayers everyday will cause health issue to local residents. In the long run, we cannot see it will bring better community for us.

    I we strongly against this project, and hope the govenment can reconsider this issue.

  24. In Pascoe Vale VIC on “Construction of eight...” at 5 Bellevue Terrace, Pascoe Vale VIC 3044:

    Caroline Mazurkiewicz commented

    I regularly turn right into Bellevue Terrace from Gaffney Street. I have noticed in recent times that, due to the number of cars parked on the street, the traffic in Gaffney Street is held up as cars heading towards each other in Bellevue Terrace enable the passing of parked cars. Considering that the plan is for two current dwellings to be replaced by 8 triple storey dwellings with limited parking, this traffic situation will only become worse. The right hand turn from Gaffney Street into Bellevue Terrace is a difficult turn as it is due to oncoming traffic and low visibility over the crest of the hill. Bellevue Terrace is a narrow street, difficult to move through with increased cars already parking on the street.
    Please consider the density of developments and the impact on long term residents. We have great difficulty exiting our driveway as our street has recently seen 3 houses turned into 13 double storey dwellings, many of which have two cars with parking available for less than one car per dwelling. This is not sustainable and definitely impacts the quality of life for residents of Pascoe Vale. Surely there must be a limit to the number of multi-dwelling developments in any one street. Please consider the impact on ratepayers.

  25. In Marrickville NSW on “To carry out alterations...” at 410 Marrickville Road Marrickville NSW 2204:

    Rebecca Parish commented

    I believe the proposed development will negatively affect local residents, particularly with regard to reduced on-street parking and safety concerns posed by increased traffic in nearby residential streets.
    The development does not comply with minimum parking requirements (12 spaces required, with only 4 proposed). The traffic management plan suggests street parking nearby offers an acceptable alternative. I do not support this, as there are very few parking spaces on David Street - the closest road to the centre. The traffic management plan supports that there is limited parking on David St, but includes Anderton St as a viable option. Parking on Anderton Street would involve crossing the very busy Marrickville Rd to access the centre. This is not a safe or convenient option for parents with small children. It is far more likely parents will try to park in David St (or possibly Robert St), resulting in negative impacts on residents including loss of on-street parking and the potential dangers posed by increased traffic at peak drop-off and pick-up times. David St has many young resident children, in addition to regular pedestrian traffic to the local medical centres (many elderly), so increased traffic would be particularly dangerous.
    While public transport in the area is good, it is not my experience that parents use public transport to drop children to local day care centres. I therefore do not think it is correct to assume the Centre's inadequate on-site parking can be ameliorated by public transport. The development will certainly have a negative impact on local residents in terms of noise, reduced residential parking and increased traffic posing safety risks.
    I would appreciate the above be considered when assessing this application.

    This DA application should not be accepted. The extra traffic will pose great and unnecessary hazards to little children from schools and kindergartens in the surrounding areas. St George area is already notorious for out of control traffic!

    Anne Skelly commented

    I would love to see the Lyric Theatre saved. It would make such a great concert hall, music venue, dance hall or community hall. Buildings like this one, once gone, can never be replaced. The development of this old theatre into eight stories of apartments is just depressing. Johnston Street is lined with largely two story buildings from the Victorian era. This proposed development will loom over the other buildings and create a precedent for more such developments. We need to look at the long term benefits to the community, rather than the short term benefits to property developers.

    Why doesn't this old theatre have a Heritage Order?

    This development, if it goes ahead, will create further stress on an already crowded inner city. Traffic is already at very stressful and time consuming levels (I write as someone who travels up and down Johnston Street six or seven days a week). For this reason, there should be no reduction in car parking to this site.

    As regards the proposed liquor store on the site, Smith Street already has a new, large liquor shop attached to the new Coles Store. With chronic alcoholics along Smith Street and the propensity for violence that alcohol brings, we do not need another shop selling liquor.

    Please save this great building and its history. I don't want another cheap, ugly block of flats in this area.
