    There's already a Woolworths close by. Better to have boutiques /restaurants and improve the image of Bondi. Hall street is making good progress with some high quality places. Let's not ruin it.

  2. Jack Lowenstein commented

    This does not seem appropriate. There is already an adequate supply of supermarkets in the area, and this proposal does add any variety or quality to the existing offerings.
    In addition, unlike Harris Farm or the existing Woolworth metro it does not come with additional parking.

  3. Andrew commented

    Woolworths already has a metro less than 500m away. 500m up Hall St is an IGA and a Harris Farm.

    This metro will lead to mass congestion along the Hall St corridor as well as the Gould St.
    These streets already have VERY POOR TRAFFIC FLOW.

    This is not a suitable application. This is Woolworths getting GREEDY

    Let's see how long it takes the country's biggest conglomerate to 'grease the right palms' at Waverly council and push this one through...

    Objection: The proposed delivery schedule of twice daily deliveries isn’t problematic but the size of the truck is, the propose route doesn’t take into consideration the residence and the traffic congestion not to mention the width of the roads, currently anything over 8m takes some manoeuvring on the intersection where O’Brien street meets Wellington and this is already a highly congested part of Bondi, and the traffic impact from the 3 apartments blocks (1 approved and 2 awaiting approval) is yet to be seen.

    I'm lodging objection to another big chain supermarket in Bondi Beach. There is a Woolworths Metro less than 500m away on Campbell parade, IGA 500m in Hall St and also a Harris Farm, not to mention the proximity of Bondi Junction..
    Bondi residents and visitors do not need another supermarket.

    Approval will lead to further unmanageable traffic congestion along Hall and Gould Streets due to the flow of delivery trucks and traffic to the store. This also compounds risks for the safety of pedestrian traffic.

    An additional supermarket has no street or other appeal, and has a major impact on the amenity of Bondi as a growing community and local tourist destination - and a significant harm to the vitality and viability of the existing Bondi hub. Wouldn't it be best to give approve the sites for a wide range of independent shops?

    There is also issue with rubbish disposal as supermarkets create huge amounts of waste (packaging, etc).

    The newly built shops are more suitable to other commercial activities.

    I hope council will take note of the concerns of local people for their environment and look for other more suitable opportunities, and less damaging uses for these sites.

    I think it’s totally unnecessary to have a Woolworths Metro on Hall Street when another one is so close by on Campbell Parade. You can get any groceries from there, or go to the IGA, Harris Farm or butcher on Hall Street. Hall Street is already really congested now and this will make it worse

  7. Andrew Hoppe commented

    This “metro market” is a supermarket - lets not kid ourselves. As mentioned previously we already have 2 supermarkets in Hall St, with one on Campbell Pde less than 500 m away.

    There will be deliveries all day long to stock the store which create traffic congestion in a street which already difficult to drive up with heavy car and delivery traffic.

    Do we need another conglomerate or chain in Bondi - it reduces the local appeal and differentiation of Bondi as a local village atmosphere and offering for residences and tourists alike.

  8. Nicolette Boaz commented

    If Bondi wants to keep its village feel , we need to keep these monopolies from taking over.
    Hall St is NOT a huge major road and cannot deal with the loading and unloading which will necessarily come with a supermarket. This is an unwanted and unwarranted development. The locals don’t want it. This should not be approved. Enough is enough.

    The area is well serviced by small to medium format supermarkets, with a Woolworths Metro close by on Campbell Parade, several convenience stores on Hall Street and Campbell Parade, an IGA on Hall Street and Harris Farm on Hall Street. This proposal is clearly being driven by a desire for street frontage/brand recognition rather than demand for another small to medium format supermarket in the immediate precinct. Prime street frontage in a local street like Hall Street should be prioritised for independent shops/cafes/restaurants or independent leisure/cultural uses, which will contribute to the local culture and community, and amenity of the local area. Hall Street and the adjacent Gould Street have a long history of these types of uses, and we need to continue to encourage diverse uses in Bondi, rather than allowing big brands to take over a vibrant local street purely for their own benefit (brand recognition). Please take this seriously.

    I agree with everyone’s comments. Note Mosman Local Planning with huge community support recently stopped Woolworths going into Mosman Village due environ concerns, inadequate parking, adverse safety of pedestrians and contrary to public interest. All the same issues facing a proposed Hall St development

  12. William commented

    I object to this proposal, this is taking away the opportunity for 3 smaller businesses to trade in the neighbourhood which far greater contributes to the local economy. In addition whilst Council can impose a time for deliveries I have experienced supermarket trucks turning up as early as 0500am making a racket and noise disturbance to sleeping residents nearby. Ditto the other objections on pre-existing supermarkets in the immediate vicinity, traffic and delivery/parking concerns.
