The humble petitioners hereby show that we have strong objections to the NCDC's approved Policy and Development Plan for Hackett, Section 17 Blocks 11 and 12, for the following reasons:

(1) The establishment of a 10 bedroom house or hostel will introduce into the Hackett suburb a type of accommodation not presently in the suburb.

(2) Whether operated publicly or by a voluntary group, or a private sub-lessee, such premises will bring into the suburb an itinerant element with the likelihood of-

(a) irresponsible and/or undesirable people creating increased security risks for commercial and private properties, especially the proposed town house to front Skeats Street;

(b) increased risk to the many school children travelling to and from local schools; and

(c) making the area a less desirable place to live and lowering property values.

(3) The proposed development will aggravate existing parking pressures in Hackett Place in that vehicle access to the development is provided to Hackett Place and will be likely to imperil pedestrians, shoppers and school children.

Your petitioners hereby pray that the N.C.D.C. be directed not to proceed with the proposed 10-bedroom house or hostel in this area.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
