Byron Residents Group are urging concerned residents to have their say over a massive hotel next to Mercato on Jonson Street and submissions have just been extended for a week.
They say some key points to consider for a submission on Development Application (10.2018.650.1) include ‘the gross floor area is 2,000sqm, greater than allowed for the zone’.
‘The height increases of up to 2.5m in some parts of the development are not justified, particularly in conjunction with the increase in floor area. The traffic report substantially underestimates the amount of traffic that the development will generate and its impacts on the surrounding area. There are insufficient car spaces for the site – only 32 per cent of what is actually needed’.
‘The dewatering report for the site excavations is totally inadequate. The proposed end discharge point for this water is into a coastal wetland. The overall bulk and scale is not appropriate to the surrounding streetscape. A development of this size is not in the public interest’.
While it will be determined by the NSW planning panel, headed by former National Party MP Garry West, Council are collecting submissions. They can be emailed to [email protected]
