    I hope that 17 rooms is not too many given there are no local services nearby for potential tenants. The impact on existing residents who have purchased homes could be detrimental if density of new development is too high. You could end up with 17 units housing only ex criminals, those with mental health issues and the elderly. Existing residents and the elderly could be vulnerable to verbal and physical attack as is the case with my elderly mother in a similar residence in a Seven Hills location. I would recommend lowering number of rooms to 12 for lease and the council issuing some restrictions about the diversity of tennants to the development business owners to meet to ensure the local culture of the immediate area remains similar to existing. Thank you.

    This is a very thought out development. There is a severe lack of studio/1 bedroom units in Rooty Hill. From my understanding maybe 1 or 2 in the unit complex on the next corner from the development but that is it. There are plenty 2 bedroom properties for rent but no 1 bedrooms. Seeing that 46% of people living in Rooty Hill are childless i think there is a huge market for something like this. Especially with its positioning:
    250m from Rooty Hill Train Station and main street of shops
    Bus stop directly infront of the development
    700m to Rooty Hill RSL
    1.4km to Mount Druitt Hospital
    1.4km to Mount Druitt TAFE
    The development has basement parking that exceeds the required spots along with a lift for ease of access mainly for elderly couples.
    Not to mention that with government planning guidelines anything within 800m of a train station is a potential future high rise site. So therefore this fits in perfectly with the surrounds and future outlook of the area.
