Harold’s Bridge Court LRD observation

In the context of a site subject to numerous constraints and with significant considerations at play – including history, heritage and the proximity of protected structures, along with the sensitivity of its built environment and the canal as a conservation area, this is a revised proposal that remains out of scale and visually incongruous relative to the local environment and the existing built form. More concerningly, it requires the demolition of more than 50 dwellings (‘in good condition generally’), 48 of which were constructed less than 30 years ago, and which 200 occupants call home. Read my full submission on why this proposal runs contrary to our city’s climate objectives and the objectives of our Development Plan here.
