Development Proposal – All Saints Church

One Response to Development Proposal – All Saints Church

  1. Elizabeth Dean says:

    Elizabeth Dean(9 Carter Street) has suggested the issues that residents may feel moved to comment on.

    The broader community issues include:
    - Lack of community consultation and notification.
    - Increased demand for already limited on street parking (note they have no intention of adding parking onsite).
    - Increased traffic congestion in an area that is already impacted significantly Mon-Fri by school, and on Saturday by the Japanese School.
    - Removal of 14 of the 17 trees on site including significant trees and threatened species.
    - Demolition and addition to a heritage listed building with very little consideration of the Burra Charter.
    - Changing the street scape considerably in a conservation area.
    - Building use

    For properties in the immediate vicinity in addition to the above, there may be concerns such as:
    - Audio Privacy
    - Visual Privacy
    - Solar Access issues
    - Stormwater drainage
    - Reflectivity
    - Form, Massing and Scale
    - Quality Built Form (with consideration for surrounding area)
    - Colours and Materials
    - Landscaping
