If you want to know what is currently occupying the minds of our team of talented architects, town planners, lawyers, communicators, cultural advocates and community activists then you've come to the hot spot for what is happening in Paddington right now:
White City... continuing developments
A development application for demolition of existing buildings and construction of a tennis and recreation facility was lodged with Woollahra Council in early 2008. For details of the plans go to www.woollahra.nsw.gov.au, go to bottom of this page, click on White City.
The Paddington Society and Local Community Groups convened a Public Meeting on Wednesday June 4th, 2008 6.30pm Paddington Bowling Club, Quarry Street.
The Society presented its concerns are about:
• Size/Scale/Footprint: Proposed is a gross floor area of 17,000 sq metre spread over a larger area. The current club house is less than 3,000 sq metres.
• Traffic & Parking: All traffic will feed through the Alma Street entrance via Lawson Street, Glenmore Road, Goodhope Street, Neild Avenue and surrounds. Proposed are 256 car spaces. The existing site has approximately 50 car spaces.
• Height: Proposed is a three and four story building. The current club house is two stories.
• General amenity due to intensification of/and type of use. We need to understand the impacts to do with noise, light, and other amenity indicators.
