The area which would be directly affected by this proposal is one of the most delightful parts of Hilton. Home owners have demonstrated their love and appreciation of the architecture with careful and costly renovations which respect the heritage significance of the houses. Moreover, both Snook and Oldham Crescents are streets with little traffic in which children play safely and happily. Recent home purchases have been made with this particular characteristic paramount. The community spirit of the street is due to several factors which the Fremantle council has actively promoted:  no high fences closing off houses and carefully controlled sub divisions which respect and enhance the Hilton community. Residents respect and abide by these regulations and by laws to continue to foster the community spirit of our garden suburb. The R20 requirements must be maintained for this beautiful and cherished area. 

The proposed development for transient residents would contravene most of what makes this part of Hilton unique and is in stark contrast to the above. We wish to maintain what the Fremantle Council itself has always tried to develop in Hilton.

Specific concerns about the proposed development include:

a.      the proposed height and scale of the development will significantly impact the adjoining residential properties in terms of loss of views and dominating poor aesthetic appearance

b.      the development is not sympathetic with Hilton’s well established  streetscape and not compatible with local character, bulk and scale of the area

c.      concerns regarding potential effect on property values by the proposed development

d.      the level of density proposed for the development is considered to be excessive, and as such it’s anticipated that the existing amenity of adjoining residential neighbours would potentially be negatively impacted in terms of traffic generation, noise and visual amenity

e.      due to the level of density proposed for the use there is significant potential for noise to be a contributing factor to impacting the adjoining residential properties

f.       this development should be considered for an area better suited to the proposed, where there is a greater and genuine need, where there is better access to services of the kind that are likely to be accessed for the tenants and where there are buildings similar in type, shape and bulk of the proposed development.
