This is your and our community and it is in our interest to have a say in what happens to it. We know everyone has busy lives but unfortunately, this (letter writing to City of City planners and councillors) is the most effective means available to us to object to these plans, and unless we all take the time to voice our concerns, the DAs will be approved and our lives will be significantly impacted. There is a two-step process that has been successful in the past…
Write individual objections on each of the separate DA’s to Council.Let the Councillors know how you feel! ( email addresses here).
In your objections you should state in your own words how you feel about the developments and why you believe the developments should be rejected. Add some of the issues from the reports available on this website from a Legal, Heritage and Planning standpoint.
Professional advice has been obtained from planning professionals to draft and lodge on the residents behalf a professional and well articulated response which would be in the best interests of all the residents. The complete list of points will be completed soon. To that end when you are providing your written objections to the development of 24 & 26 Pitt Street and/or to 52 – 54 Pitt Street it would be relevant to mention, amongst other things, the following:
a) The developments are not sensitive to Heritage;
b)The developments will adversely impact on your amenities (i.e. parking, noise privacy etc);, traffic (foot, car, bike, motorbike) and rubbish.
c)The developments will significantly increase congestion to the area (i.e. increase residential density, decrease standard of living from a Amenity point of view.
d)these D.A.s propose gross over development and not appropriate in a Heritage Overlay Area.
Each letter should also be emailed to the following:
- John McInerney email@example.com
- Di Tornai firstname.lastname@example.org
- Shayne Mallard email@example.com
- Meredith Burgmann firstname.lastname@example.org
- Irene Doutney email@example.com
- Chris Harris firstname.lastname@example.org
- Clover Moore email@example.com
- Marcelle Hoff firstname.lastname@example.org
- Phillip Black email@example.com
- Robert Kok firstname.lastname@example.org
- Mark Solomon email@example.com
Please Remember: A separate letter/email should be drafted for each individual development application (i.e. 1 for 24 Pitt St, 1 for 26 Pitt St, 1 for 52 -54 Pitt St etc)
Your letter of objections must be submitted by the relevant date. Also, be sure to add DA Number and make it bold and underlined otherwise your objections will not be considered by the council.
Please send a copy of your letter to firstname.lastname@example.org or to simply notify that your letters have been sent hard or soft copy to simplify this process and ensure our number count is correct. We will also be printing your letters and delivering them by hand for a receipt. If you have written letters of objection for these past development applications (DAs) – thank you very much. It is thanks to our strong and unified community objection that council has listened to us in the past. However, these new and amended DAs need to be addressed.
The Council will not take into account previous correspondence, and these new issues need to be raised. We need everyone to continue this strong letter writing campaign. It was the overwhelming response to councillors that escalated the attention to our concerns If you have any questions relating to these applications or you require any further information then please do not hesitate to contact email@example.com
