    Terrible idea and not the area for high density apartments. It will be an eye sore on a nice street that is mainly large family homes. I hope this doesn’t get approved

    The residents of Oyster Bay chose to live in this suburb because it is traditionally an Australian suburb with one house on one block of land with ample room to maintain the existing tree canopy. It is the Council's duty and responsibility to maintain the 'dream' and the architectural character of Oyster Bay. As custodians of this land we have a duty of care to maintain as much native vegetation as possible.
    This proposed over development should be dismissed as contrary to the expectations of the community and any other decision is a betrayal of trust. There are many other opportunities for people to live in high density concrete jungles in the Shire. As the COVID pandemic has shown, survival is assured when people live with distance between them, so lets stick to the plan, one house on one block of land.

    This proposal would not fit the character of the local area and surrounding properties and should be promptly rejected.

    Oyster Bay does not have any units, let’s not start now. The only benefit is multiple rates to council.

    I absolutely object to this development. It is out of character for the street and the suburb. It is virtually all large family homes along that stretch and in Oyster Bay as a whole.

    Looks fine. Same as the one a couple of doors down. Retains established trees at rear of block and front, and utilises the land sensibly without adding unnecessary bulk at the street.
    This is a pretty busy road that suits this type of medium density more so than the quieter suburban streets.

  8. Julie Adamsom commented

    The slow & deliberate action of a once leafy, quiet, safe suburb. I lived for many years in this beautiful peaceful suburb. Residents must let Council know they wish to keep the suburb peaceful, quiet & keep the Trees.

    Higher density developments generally come with one car space, but often the owners have more than one car. With extra street parking could become a safety issue for the nearby school and residents. Also agree that aesthetically it won’t suit the area.

    The unfinished development a few doors down is already an eyesore and has led to flooding on the walkway. I also understand that the development is being sold as unfinished (which is a shame) but can common with any developments such as this.

    Therefore I don’t approve either

    Regarding @Ryans comment who I suspect is the developer. The one two doors down should never have been built. It has slipped through DA on the sly. It is an eye sore and Oyster Bay does not have or need flats.

    We certainly don't want them as the first thing you see when you enter the suburb. Just look how ugly and bad the ones up near the petrol station look. It cheapens the neighbourhood. I strongly object

    If people do a Search under Oyster Bay by the EPA the BAY is badly POLLUTED with HEAVY METALS. Definitely no swimming or Fishing. The more there is Development in Oyster Bay, the more TOXIC chemicals (used in Development of Buildings) only adds to the mess Oyster Bay has become. Sydney Harbour Waters have been cleaned up. Oyster Bay has been languishing for years & years in its POLLUTED condition. EPA, Council, State Government just turn a blind eye to the Heavy Metal Pollution..the Bay is almost dead in some areas. People/Locals killed off all the Mangroves that once were all around the Bay (Oyster Bay, Kareela, Como, Sylvania etc). The Mangroves acted as a Filtration System for the Pollution & a Nursery for small & vulnerable Crustaceans, Fish & Water Birds, all that remains is a very sick Bay. Gymea Bay, Lilli Pilli, Dolans Bay, CaringbH Siuth, Yowie Bay...these suburbs use to be magnificent. Eucalyptus, Bushland & Wildlife. Now the areas are lined with Multi Million Dollar sterile Houses. Native Trees & Wildlife have died...due to loss of habitat & food source....hardly anyone cares about the once beautiful areas along the George's & Port Hacking Rivers. I don't want our Shire to end up the way the Northern side of the George's River has become.....houses everywhere along the River so ugly.....expensive Real Estate but.....so horrible to see....progress comes with a terrible burden....mainly destruction!

    Response to GM comment...the Units opposite the Shell Station in George's River Rd JANNALI ...& the Units further up the street are NSW Government Housing.

    I am pleading with Council to stop the division of housing blocks of land in Oyster Bay, for higher density living. A past LEP protected the residents, what is going on? There is a pending development of a double block of land in Scylla Road to four town houses. These town houses if built will compound a drainage problem for everyone down hill.
    The science based intelligent comments made by residents who know the impact of increased human impact on this area know the environment here. A comprehensive view of the whole suburb needs to be assessed, not an individualistic view on the wants of the few, when weighed up with the health and rights of the whole community. Come on Australia ...... we want lifestyle in a natural and peaceful setting!
