    I object to this proposed development. We already have a saturation of units/townhouses etc in this area - we do not need any more. Please leave it as a green space - as I am sure it was intended when the development first began. We have a school next door and we do not need the increase of traffic numbers this would generate. There is a whole building of aged care units being constructed in Tuggeranong ie 10 minutes, at most, from where their development is proposed.... enough is enough

    I live close by to O'Halloren Circuit in Kambah and have been witness to the many developments which have occurred on or close by to O'Halloren Circuit in Kambah in recent years. The Namadgi Super School, the Marigold Retirement Village, a shopping centre (comprising an IGA supermarket, service station (with Bakery), Veterinary surgery, Cafe, Pharmacy, Pizza outlet and a Gym). Nearby has been the development of Jenke Circuit (Jenke Park) with a 117 placement child care centre, Hungry Jacks food outlet, Electricial supplier store and another Gym. This is in addition to the long established long term storage facilities, indoor sports centre, doctors and dentists practices already there. All this development has made O'Halloren Circuit a busy street and no longer feels like a residential street (it's a busy thoroughfare). Further development will only add to traffic problems and reduce the values of existing houses, townhouses and units as people will not want to buy in such a busy area. People may want to buy units close to town centres so they can access the amenities, that is not the decision people made when buying on O'Halloren Circuit (before all the development). Whilst the amenities close to O'Halloren Circuit are convenient, current home owners did not buy their properties with knowledge of all the development that alters the area from quite residential street to a shopping and school precinct.

    There has been too much development in the area of O'Halloren Circuit (towards Drakeford Drive). This latest 4 storey development should not go ahead in a residential street, enough is enough for our once quiet street. This 4 story development would create a "wall" of apartments which would create an eyesore on the landscape. Where else in Kambah are 4 story buildings? Were the residents of the Marigold retirement village informed of this development before they purchased? It will effect the look and feel of the area for those in these recently completed villas. The four story apartments are identified as Stage 4 of the development of Marigold Retirement Units. Why do they have to be so different to the remainder of the development which are single story villas?

    As well as traffic issues, concerns for existing residents are:
    Loss of Outlook
    Loss of Privacy due to high 4 story development proposed
    Shadowing, loss of solar efficiency
    Reduced house prices due to over development of street
    Cars parking along O'Halloren Circuit because development does not have enough car spaces for visitors to the new apartments.

    There is too much Urban infill in Canberra suburbs, leave some green spaces to be enjoyed.
