The Swanson Hotel – not too late to object

The City of Sydney will still accept submissions until 20 April.

Address your submission to:

Alistair Smith, ASmith1@cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au.

If you wish to object, you must include in your submission:

Key points to raise:

Height:

  • The applicant acknowledges that the proposed development exceeds the maximum height in the Sydney DCP 2012 and the allowable height under the LEP 2012. No justification for this is non-compliance is provided.
  • As a community we are seriously concerned about the precedent that any breach of controls would set for future developments in the area.

Heritage:

  • Currently, the hotel is listed in the City’s LEP as a contributory building
  • According to City of Sydney guidelines: ‘Alterations and additions should not significantly alter the appearance of principal and significant façades of a contributory building, except to remove detracting elements.’ The current proposal clearly constitutes a major alteration to a principal and significant façade.
  • This is even more importance since the hotel still maintains its original façade and its appearance has not been changed since its first operation in 1939.
