A $13 million unit block planned for Aberdeen Street has attracted the ire of the local Business Improvement Group Northbridge and the nearby The Deen (formerly the Aberdeen).
BIG N and the Deen objected to the 68-unit block worried it’ll kill licensed venues nearby when new residents inevitably complain about noise and behaviour. Their submission to Perth city council says the Deen relies on late-night trade through to 2am three nights a week.
“The renewal of these extended trading permit[s] will be threatened by the residential development of the surrounding sites,” a PCC summary of the objection states. It says the dense unit block “will be impacted on by noise and behaviour issues connected with the hotel leading to objections”. Regardless, the planning committee recommended approval.
