Five storey building would cast a large shadow over street unless it was stepped back like the adjacent building (which sets the precedent).
What parking would be provided for the 50 dwellings? two spots per dwelling?
What size would the dwellings be, small 1 bedroom or a variety of sizes? This is not a student housing area and my preference would be for two bedroom dwelling suitable for young couples or older residents hoping to stay in the area.
As this is an area close to a primary school and shopping strip has there been consideration of the change in traffic flow in and around the building? There is also two places of worship nearby that use the parking adjacent to the proposed building, would this still be available?
