    I object to DA/58/2020 2 Woodvale Avenue, North Epping. Most of the trees and vegetation were cleared from this site using the 10/50 clearing code prior to the lodging of the DA. However, there is nothing in this DA to show the secondary dwelling will meet the AS 3959 Construction of buildings in bushfire prone areas or its Bushfire Attack Level and compliance with this.
    There is no arborist report to show tree protection for the adjoining street trees remaining including an indigenous tree on which the new building will impact on the root zone and tree canopy.
    There is no record of the deep soil space (for tree planting) to be provided or compliance with this DCP requirement.
    There is no record of the area for landscaping which will be provided. The architect plans indicate the DA will not provide a min of 50% of the landscape area behind the building line to the primary road front in accordance with the DCP. The new building will fill most of this front yard area.
    Near the building corners the setbacks and their compliance with the DCP are unclear and they do not appear to meet minimum requirements.
    The Site Area list which records floor areas (for buildings and open space) does not tally to the site's total of 803sqms - making the floor areas to be provided unclear.
    The large alfresco area at the south side of the secondary dwelling has potential to impact on the neighbour's privacy given its close proximity to the side boundary.
    No details of excavation are given although this is a rocky, sloping site. What will be the environmental impact of this? How will the drainage be managed?
    This development is not in the keeping of the character of this locality and does not demonstrate being in the public interest. It would also appear that more information is required before an assessment can be undertaken.

    It appears that this DA is not sympathetic to the streetscape or local suburban houses. I request more information to be provided to explain how the landscaping and deep soil allowance will be maintained to be compliant with expectations for subdivisions.
