    Could Parramatta City Council please check the cause of the recent demise of the 7-8 Turpentine trees on this property. Council should condition that the same number of replacement Turpentine tree are to be planted as part of a landscape plan whether or not this DA is approved. They can obviously fit onto the site as they were there until recently.

    That being said the works required to this beautiful heritage home to make it compliant with the requirements of the NSW Education and Child Care SEPP are incompatible with the heritage values of the building, the locality and of Parramatta City Council. This DA should be refused.

    I am very concerned about the death of a number of Turpentine trees on this site at 25 Ray Road Epping, which is the subject of DA/19/2020 to convert the heritage-listed home to a childcare facility with 50 places. Before this DA can proceed, Council should appoint an independent arborist to investigate the death of the trees and mandate replacement trees immediately - at the owner's cost.

    Given the significant loss of heritage in the Parramatta Local Government Area, any further loss or "adaptation" to commercial premises is unacceptable in what is largely a residential area, and I therefore object to this DA.
