    This DA is being done by the same developer who allowed the side of a house to fall off nearly killing the inhabitants. All his work should be scrutinised carefully as he clearly has little concern for safety standards. The idea of putting a pool into this tiny street is foolish. The traffic here is already impossible. There is no room for any workers trucks and deliveries will be a nightmare. There is no turning around here but trust me, people try. Why are they applying for a height increase ? They have already been knocked back. This DA should never have been allowed in the first place. I repeat : this D.A. should be scrutinised very very carefully and should NEVER have been ok’d in the first place.

    This development is located on a corner block with absolutely no vehicle access and nowhere to stop outside except for via Simpson Street which is a narrow residential street that already suffers from traffic and parking issues.
    It is not an ideal location for such a large development in the first place without adding extra height.
    A Family in the same street had their house collapse into the neighbouring development.
    There are too many approvals granted without looking carefully at the existing area/streetscape.
    Please take into account the already dense residential area before adding more traffic and congestion, particularly where there is little or unsafe access.

    This DA in its bulk and scale is not appropriate for this area and will cause traffic and parking issues in an area that has already limited parking. Furthermore, there has been a pedestrian death on the corner of Curlewis Street and Old South Head Road and this will cause more problems. This corner block with absolutely no vehicle access and nowhere to stop outside except for via Simpson Street which is a narrow residential street that already suffers from traffic and parking issues and will furthermore contribute to this issue.
    The excessive FSR should include the basement and again is outside the legal requirenment and should not be allowed.
    After the recent incident with the Developer, the council should be very careful and not grant this development as this Developer's building ethics should be under scrutiny after the recent dangerous workmanship and near death.
    There are too many approvals granted without looking carefully at the existing area/streetscape and does not blend in with the local area due to its bulk and scale.
    I would have also liked another officer to be delegated to this project as it could be a conflict of interest as it is the same officer that was responsible for the same builders DA just around the corner.
    Please take into account the already dense residential area before adding more traffic and congestion, particularly where there is little or unsafe access.
    Thank you.

    In the proposed plans, I note that the proposed "new street tree sites" on the corner of OSH Road and Curlewis Street will block the view/sightline of the traffic lights at this busy junction - there was a pedestrian death at that very spot in the last year - if the Council Planning officer could please come have a look.

    Council should consider a revision to the footpath plan and tree placement on the Curlewis Street side - One option would be to relocate some of the trees to the Simpson street footpath - trees are good, so removing/reducing the number of trees in this DA is not the right solution.

    Given the pedestrian death this year - I think it reasonable Council ask the Architect to come up with a better greenery solution for that intersection (Curlewis Street side). Combining the bike racks with garden beds/low-height shrubs could work as a solution.

    Thanks
