    The previous houses provided the street with character and, more importantly, history of the Hornsby shire’s notable residents. It is a shame that the council does not value the history and character of our community. Furthermore, the development will ultimately add more concrete to the urban landscape despite its attempt at compensatory green landscaping. Therefore, the urban heat island effects will make the area hotter and increase the negative impacts of climate change. Living in the bushland shire, an increase in high density apartment buildings that make a cumulative contribution to increasing the temperature of the area is a matter of serious concern. I believe that further high density developments in our area should, at the very least, commit to solar power generation, passive building technologies and ultimately improve any existing thermal stress that occurs as a result of the current built environment. That is, unless the development positively contributes to the ways in which the bushland shire combats and reduces the effects of climate change, then the high density development does not have my support. The current development proposal and its plans do not commit to combating and protecting our homes and neighbourhood from the impacts of global warming and therefore, in its current iteration does not have my support.
