We are asking you to consider whether you are able to make a short objection/submission regarding this DA. You could include that:

  • The proposed building would spoil the character of this historic area of federation shops.
  • 3 storey building frontage at Illawarra Rd is too high and would dominate the surrounding 2 storey buildings.
  • Set back of only 6 metres from Illawarra Road for the higher storeys is not enough.
  • The proposed design and decoration of the building does not match that of federation shop fronts along Illawarra Road.

You can email your objection/submission ASAP to Council at council@innerwest.nsw.gov.au and quote DA201900421.
