    Re Application No : DA 0381/19. PRoperty 70 Warrangi st Turramurra

    I wish to record my objection to this proposed development. The building of five dwellings on a property of this size in this quiet residential street will change the character of the area, and set a dangerous precedent.

    Re Application No : DA 0381/19. PRoperty 70 Warrangi st Turramurra

    I wish to record my objection to this proposed development.

    State Environmental Planning Policy (Housing for Seniors or People With a Disability) 2004 (the SEPP)

    Clause 26 – Location and access to facilities; and
    Clause 38 – Accessibility:

    DA0381/19 Amendment to foot_path_plans additional information - Detailed Plan Alignment Detail Plan Page 2 of 22 and also Page 14 of 22.

    The new pathway is being proposed along the existing grass verge/nature strip on the along the northern stretch of Warrangi Street and the corner of Warrangi Street and Bobbin Head Road. There is currently no footpath along this part of Warrangi Street. The street is characterised by attractive grass verges/nature strips which are occasionally interspersed by modest driveways allowing vehicular access to the single-family dwelling houses, which also characterise the area.

    Whilst there may be a bus stop located on Boomerang Street which provides access to these services in Turramurra centre, the fact that a completely new pathway needs to be constructed to allow sufficient accessibility to the bus stop should be the first sign that a development for seniors housing is being proposed in an inappropriate location.

    This proposed footpath is not unlike installing a pedestrian crossing on the road and leading children to cross at these points. No car would have clear visibility of a pedestrian crossing to be able to stop in time. You would just not expect anyone to cross at those points. Similarly, no pedestrian would be able to safely see a car coming at either of these crossing points to allow safe passage.

    The foot path leads senior and people with living with a disability as well as anyone uses this footpath on Warrangi Street to cross the road twice, then creates and exaggerated curvy footpath design to meet the gradient rules to get to the Bus stop on Boomerang Street. Furthermore a beautiful tree of good vigour removed from the corner of Warrangi Street and Bobbin Head Road in the process.

    The proposed development of five individual senior living homes is entirely out of context with the both the neighbourhood and the wider area, and also fails to respond to the streetscape character or complement the surrounding dwellings. The neighbourhood and the wider area are characterised by large, detached, single-family dwelling homes on large plots. The development would be unique in the local area and detrimental to local streetscape character, through both the incongruous design and location of the proposed homes, and the introduction of the footpath as referred to above.

    This DA should be rejected on its failure to provide "quality of access" (quality of route to its nearest suitable destination) Page 13 of the SEPP 2004
