Juniper Hall DA

11 July 2016

I share community concern about overdevelopment of the heritage Juniper Hall site at 248-250 Oxford Street Paddington. Development application 222/2016 proposes welcome restoration of Juniper Hall for use as art gallery, retail, offices and home. However the large two-storey gallery and shops with roof terrace and connecting bridge on the northern side is too big. Proposed excavation and underground shops on the southern (Oxford Street) side will impact on the heritage building and garden, removing it from the adjacent civic space and public access. Comments close Thursday 14 July. Details HERE.
