This is wanton destruction of a liveable neighbourhood.
The street is almost entirely single storey dwellings, just a couple at 2 storey. To allow six 3 storey dwellings, on the high side of the street will completely dominate and impact surrounding houses.
The street is narrow, and because it curves, has poor visibility. The level of traffic has already led to installation of traffic calming devices. To further allow a reduction in car parking will increase traffic and congestion considerably, impacting liveability, safety, and access for all.
It's pretty clear that this development is about maximising profit, not about creating a liveable environment. Every effort must be made to ensure that the development shifts focus to create a people-first environment.
