    Dear Bayside Council. This development is surrounded by residential properties who suffer enough from the noise, pollution and traffic from industrial related activities. Please limit this and further industrial activities in this area to 7am-4pm weekdays and zero hours of weekend opening. This property has a number of trucks coming and going belonging to the property, visitors buying and collecting timber, other services such as waste collection and loud timber equipment. A number of properties along this stretch have very loud roller doors which open very early in the morning and disturb the sleep of surrounding residents. Please refuse and allow residential properties to co-exist with industry.

    To General Manager of Bayside Council: regarding DA-2001/10382/B:

    Residential properties and light industry can cohabitate without greatly impacting on one another, if a balance is maintained.

    Converting the hours of operation to 5.30am to 6.00pm (12 ½ hours per day) Monday to Friday and 7am to 4.00pm (9 hours) Saturday or 71 ½ hours per week under the current development application “will impact” all residents within the surrounding area by destroying said balance. The number of Bayside residents impacted is not limited to those living opposite or next to said site. Residents will experience increased noise, increased trucking movements through Bayside with deliveries occurring in the early hours of the morning, the loading and unloading of said trucks, garbage collections, the reversing warning beeping of trucks and forklifts and the opening and closing of roller stutters etc. All of these activities should not commence until after 7.00am.

    Due to the close proximity to residential properties, all industrial sites hours of operations should be amended to the earliest starting time as 7.00 am to finish at 4.30pm (9 ½ hours) Monday to Friday and 7.30am to 12.30pm Saturday (4 hours) which converts to a 51 ½ hours per week, thus maintaining a balance for between Bayside residents and light industry.

    Based on the impact the increased hours of operations of Frank’s Fencing will have to local Bayside residents quality of life council should "reject" all aspects of this DA application.

    To Whom it may concern,

    I am writing to you regarding DA-2001/10382/B.

    The buisness at this address is not adhering to their current DA conditions already opening at 5.30am occuring only last Friday 29th Nov despite council issuing a formal written warning. 

    Council can not extend the trading hours of this business as they are in a shared residential area and the noise created by equipment such as nail guns, forklift, trucks and the constant semi trailer deliveries is already causing great disruption to residents and their quality of life. We are being woken almost daily by the noise of trucks and roller doors.

    Furthermore lifting or modifying DA conditions would also allow for increased truck movement on Botany road and this posses a danger to not just the immediate residents but all of Botany. We have seen so many times recently the loss of innocent people's lives by heavy vehicles in residential areas.

    Also with regards to the acoustic reports provided they are over 18 years old and are out dated and no longer actually reflective of what is happening in Botany in 2019. This report needs to be updated to be reflective of the current conditions in Botany.

    It is for the above reasons that we urge council to not support this appilcation.
