    This is not a suitable block for underground parking as drainage is a problem when getting unexpected rainfall as I built the house on this site in 1974 and my house flooded in that year there use to be creek there that was filled in and when unexpected downpour happens it is big problem for the immediate area plus houses lower down could be very undermined and flooded.

    IMPORTANT NOTE TO PERSONS MAKING SUBMISSIONS:

    COUNCIL OFFICERS HAVE IN THE PAST CLAIMED THAT SUBMISSIONS MADE VIA "PLANNING ALERTS" DO NOT IDENTIFY THE SPECIFIC DEVELOPMENT APPLICATION, AND SO ARE NOT CONSIDERED IN THEIR ASSESSMENT PROCESS.

    WHETHER THIS CLAIM IS CORRECT OR NOT, IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT A DUPLICATE SUBMISSION, INCLUDING THE DA REFERENCE, IS ALSO SENT TO COUNCIL VIA EMAIL TO council@cityofparramatta.nsw.gov.au

    DA/465/2020 - 56 CAROLINE CHISHOLME DR WINSTON HILLS
    We totally object to this development. A commercial establishment in the middle of a Residential area with special character is unimaginable and appalling. With brazen disregard and disrespect of the Parramatta LEP and the local community and neigborhood.
    1. There's a child care few metres away oppoisite the public school which caters to the needs of local comminity since decades.
    2. There are multiple home based child care operators in this area.
    3. Huge Early learning centres in Windsor Rd, Northmead.
    4. This supposes that this facility would seek children from other areas, causing traffic and parking congestion in the busy Caroline Chisholm Drive. 36 children plus staff equals 50 plus cars.
    5. Peace and quiet of the residential suburb will be lost.
    6. There are many vacant commercial properties across the road in seven hills which could be well utilised for such ventures
    We hope that the decision makers at the council would use common sense and good judgement to reject this attrocious development outright.

    I support this development. I live locally and there are limited spots in reputable childcare centres in Winston Hills. A 36 place childcare centre is certainly not a large centre. Winston Hills needs more childcare services and facilities to support local families. It can’t be considered a family friendly suburb without good childcare facilities.

  5. Wendy Gordon commented

    If this construction looks anything like the other one that was planned for Lanhams Rd I don’t think it suits the special character of our suburb

    The special character Area given to Winston Hills supports this residential area since the 1960's, To place this development in the middle of residential housing goes against the character of the area. One only has to look up Google to see how many other child minding centres there are surrounding Winston hills which completely negates this development to take place.which will bring with it parking, drop offs at peak periods of traffic already using Winston Hills as a rat run from adjoining suburbs. As a long term resident of Winston Hills I totally object to this unnecessary development

    We are definitely against this development !! We have lived on Caroline Chisholm drive for 20 years and the traffic has grown substantially...My concern is the danger of the cars in the morning and afternoon who attend the local primary school...I have seen cars turn off Homer street as they turn the corner they look up at Hillcrest to look for on coming traffic and then accelerate...to have a childcare facility one house from the corner with perhaps 50 cars Pulling in and out of a residential driveway could be extremely dangerous.!,,..I hope this danger will be enough concern to stop this development....

    To the attention of the Parramatta Council officer in charge.
    The on-site notice of this Development advising local residents and inviting them to express their opinion, has been hung in the letter box on site with an intention to conceal rather than reveal. The hanging ties has been metculously cut loose to make the board flutter in the wind and only the turned reverse blank side is visible to the passers by, with a view certainly to prevent more objections pouring in. May I request a council officer to visit the site to verify this fact. I believe that the mandatory notice period should be reset to zero for incorrect display. Hopethis plea does not end up falling on deaf ears at the council.. We have taken a picture for proof.
