Stop the development of boarding house accomodation in family-friendly Botany
This petition had 92 supporters
A large scale boarding house development has been proposed by Parker Logan Property for construction on Daphne St, Botany. The current proposal is for a three storey, 75- room, property with attic and basement parking. Daphne St is in the heart of family-friendly Botany bordered by Botany Public School and Booralee Park playground. Boarding house accommodation is an inexpensive accommodation option for people who are often from transient and marginalised groups, for example, people who are chronically unemployed, have a mental illness, have problems with substance use or are ex-offenders.
Whilst there is a housing crisis in Sydney and it is critical that the most disadvantaged members of our society are not forced into homelessness, the large-scale development proposed by Parker Logan Property for Daphne St Botany is too large, and ill-suited to this location. There is only one other three storey plus attic building on the street and these are residential units. The 75-room proposal will bring 75 adults, statistically most likely to be male, into a family-oriented street. It potentially puts the children in the Botany community at risk. Bayside Council should prevent the large scale construction of boarding house accommodation in Botany.
