The brick building on the left is a heritage house at 201 Macquarie Street. The proposed new building is at the rear. The land slopes steeply down to the rivulet.
The red line is the level at Macquarie Street, showing 4 storeys above the line. This is below the maximum height of 18 metres recommended by Leigh Woolley for this area.
Regardless of the above, we feel that there are reasons why it should not be approved, and we encourage you to make a submission rejecting this application; reasons below.
