    Why are 3 trees proposed to be removed? I see documentation for tree 1?
    i want to retain a leafy neighbourhood. Not just buildings. This will affect the whole streetscape.

  2. Julie commented

    I agree. Only 1 tree detailed, what of the other 2? Plans for replacements?
    Very disappointing yet again.

    Is it really necessary to remove 3 trees? I am a loss to know why people buy in Eastwood whose major attraction has always been its leafy treed nature if they want to knock down the trees. We need trees- they are aesthetically pleasing, provide shade, a habitat for our fauna and improve the quality of our air.

    I object to the removal of these 3 trees. There is only documentation providing the reason for the removal of one conifer. Pruning this tree should be all that is required to make space for a fence. There are now driveway surfaces which can be designed to accommodate tree roots and this option needs to be explored (eg see south side of Ryde Medical Centre at Ryedale Road, Eastwood).
    The removal of trees within the City of Parramatta Council area has become too easy. This popular trend needs to be stopped. The ease with which trees can be removed is also contrary to the Western Sydney Turn Down the Heat program the Council supports.
    The removal of these 3 trees will be significantly detrimental to the streetscape, the children's health, climate change, wildlife habitat and the local environment. There is nothing in the application to show that the trees are not in good health or to justify their removal.

    After a recent discussion with a Parramatta City planner I would recommend all objection are done via the council email contact: council@cityofparramatta.nsw.gov.au
    The planner made the comment that they tended to disregard comments from Planning Alerts or at least treat them all as a single objection . If everyone who objects sends an email to council they will be treated each as a single objection and if sufficient are received would require a decision at a public forum.

    Ok if this comment will be disregarded anyway, let me say that other councils treat planningalerts comments seriously, and log them as individual objections. Example: Bayside council in the south where I have another property. I use accurate email and street address and get replies by those communication channels. I am on Ryde side of Eastwood here, so go ahead ignore me.

  1. Have you made a donation or gift to a Councillor or Council employee? You may need to disclose this.

  2. Please use your real full name if possible.

  1. We never display your street address. Why do you need my address?
