Re: D/2017/617
We are owners of 16 Jesmond Street, Surry Hills and we strongly object to the development application proposing 14 private roof top terraces on the Henry building at St Margaret’s, 431-433 Bourke Street, Surry Hills, and we totally support the case put forward by our neighbour, Jason Wedesweiler, at 18 Jesmond Street (refer their objections, and ours, regarding D/2017/617).
Our objection rests on the very obvious fact that the purpose of roof terraces is for people to enjoy, socialise, dine, barbecue and party, and the noise that will be generated by such activities from 14 rooftop terraces will be grossly intrusive.

Noise is already an issue from the balconies of Jasper and Alba buildings, however these balconies are small (holding from 8-14 people approx. with no outdoor amenity) so people usually move inside or go out if they are a large group. With roof terraces accommodating a larger number of people with BBQ’s, sinks, space for refrigeration, people could stay there all day/night.

We sincerely hope you will heed our plea to preserve the amenity of our neighbourhood by opposing this application.

Yours sincerely,

Stephen and Helen FitzGerald
