Unwanted development in Leichhardt
A new development plan for 22 and 30-40 George St, Leichhardt, seeks to amend the Leichhardt Local Environment Plan 2000 and some local residents are less than happy. This construction, which is being handled by the NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure, is situated on a plot of land that is 1.46 hectares. The proposal would see the site rezoned for mixed use and medium density residential. The majority of complaints from locals are against the proposed size, as eight storeys would overshadow residential area and cause invasion of privacy, but also parking and traffic conditions would change and residents feel that they were only offered very limited consultation time.
Leichhardt Council has made a submission regarding the proposal, which can be viewed at www.leichhardt.nsw.gov.au.
