Dear Abby and John

I wish to register my strong opposition to the proposal to redevelop the Ashmore estate.

All of Erskineville's charm and popularity amongst inner west residents is a result of the village feel and small community atmosphere. This proposed redevelopment will complete destroy what our residents have worked so hard to build.

In particular, the drain on existing services, local traffic chaos, significantly more congestion on Mitchell Rd, completely insufficient parking, and even more congestion on our already ridiculously-overcrowded trains, will all negatively impact erskineville and its residents.  And for what gain?? Just making property developers and real estate agents richer......

I urge council to reconsider, and then strongly oppose, this proposal.

Please support your residents and property owners!

I look forward to your response.
