    I object to this DA. There are already too many vacant retail spaces available for rent or purchase in Epping and this business could occupy one of these without the need to convert a residential apartment into a shop. Approval of this DA could set a precedent. The DA does not record and demonstrate the zoning for this site permits a business.
    The DA does not address commercial space requirements for increased ceiling heights, off street parking, signage, and privacy for other residents. Nor does it show its impact on the nearby Heritage Items eg Epping Uniting Church.
    The waste management for the business (bio waste, sharps) within a strata residential apartment block seems unclear.
    While it may not be within the scope of the DA this also raises questions with regards to the strata insurance, increased wear and tear to common property and safety. Will the property owner need to pay a higher levy?

    I fully support this DA. Epping needs more commercial/retail spaces in order for it to grow into its role of being a strategic hub.

    All those who oppose or hinder Epping's development and growth towards being a strategic hub.... they can move to another suburb.

    It's not clear if the strata management committee have approved this. The council planners would be wasting their time assessing unless the body corporate have given their approval.

    The Epping Chamber of Commerce has calculated that 50,000 m2 of office/commercial space have been destroyed by rezoning forced upon Hornsby Council by the State Government (Cambridge St, Langston Pl, Beecroft Rd). This cannot be compensated by turning individual flats into businesses. It is a wrong approach
