    This property has an entire bank of vital shady habitat close to an already hot barren carpark. Is it possible to retain some or all of this.? What is the landscape plan for this development with regards to planting mature plants. How many of the existing plants are to be retained permanently and how will the the development affect their ability to survive. . How can this development contribute to improving the future of Umina Beach with regards to reducing the heat sink effect and other damage to the environment which may result as a side effect of new infrastructure. Please can there be assurances to consider and respect native landscaping features.

    Is there any way to maintain some of this vital habitat? These trees should be maintained in some way to offset heat island effect we have all experienced here on the Peninsula.

    A streetscape with trees contributes to a healthy community in so many ways. Is there any reason why the Peninsula should not be a leafy suburb? In the heat of the summer everyone tries to park in the shade and we try walk under the cover of shade. The shade provided by trees encourages people to come out to shop, recreate, and engage rather than hiding out in the AC until the heat of the day has passed. Is there any reason why our streetscapes cannot include more trees and greenspaces?

    Could the council please work with the developer to maintain some of the greenspace on this property?

    Whilst we sorely need more health facilities in the peninsula, we need our trees even more. Please do not approve the removal of any of these trees. The sound of chainsaws bring dread and are all too common. The peninsula is being destroyed with unsympathetic development. It has to stop!

    If this is to be a health facility, how good for our health would a shade tree be?
    Please maintain trees for the benefit of your patients. Make it a nice place to visit.
    We are losing too many trees for reasons such as keeping a place tidy. Trees are vital for health and well-being.

    I would feel welcomed and drawn to attend a health premises that included shade trees. Just as we are drawn to walk in a park with trees and comment about how beautiful a shopping centre is that includes green shade areas. Please maintain as many existing trees as possible and think about how you can include more green areas in your plans. It will show your potential clients that you care. Care about our community, our health and well-being not just making money. So many people on the Peninsular are missing the established trees that were once gracing our community. Please show us you care.
