Stop with the student accommodation.

I don't feel the UNI are being good neighbours to the private residents
that are in between the proposed development. It really looks like a
good way to de-value there properties. I know I wouldn't like going
from a nice sunny backyard to having a 3 storey development on both
sides. Especially property 120. Nice work let's put a rooftop terrace
overlooking for noise and reducing your privacy. I feel they should be
asked to cut backorreduce the height of this proposal at the
neighbouring properties. I also feel 2 stories high would be more
appropriate and in keeping with the terraces nearby.

I feel the proposal is inappropriate and would completely alter and
degrade the heritage integrity of the precinct. In addition the public
road at the rear of the properties would effectively be captured by
the university for its private use and profit.

The addition of another 300 student residents would increase pressure
on congestion of roads and local amenity and will exacerbate a problem
that will become apparent when the student accommodation on the Sydney
University Regiment site is operational.

There will be significant additional noise, parking problems and
pollution associated with the significant change in residential
density in the area.

One can only feel the utmost sympathy for the owners of few privately
held residences within the site that will be dramatically and
negatively impacted by this over-development proposal.

The university could easily build over its sporting fields or utilise
the green space in front of the Fisher Library, which would have
little negative impact on the local residents of Darlington, if there
is a dire need for on campus student accommodation.

Ausgrid notes that Appendix P to the EIS identifies that the proponent
has made an application for connection to Ausgrid for the new
development and that their design accommodates removal of existing
Ausgrid infrastructure and installation of new connections.

Ausgrid has no further submission.

Could not agree more. I live in a very close proximity to the university
and have never been consulted about their developments. In addition
The Sydney University's seems to be moving into the business of major
accommodation developers so not sure why they should apply for any
waivers.
