    Not happy myself about all the extra traffic and not being notified also. We will now have an intersection right out the front of our house to contend with every day. Environmental impact and street appeal will be affected too. I like our quiet street and now we will be forced to live on a busy road all because someone wants to make $ mega bucks $ from the sale of 24 blocks of land regardless of what anyone thinks. 😡👎🏻

    Our community has not been notified of this development perhaps because the owner of this property is a Councillor with Lake Macquarie Council. It will certainly impact us in regards to increase traffic flow therefore safety for children, increase noise, removing natural habitat for wildlife and the environmental effect for the area.
    There is no access to sewer on that side of road. Not happy for our quiet community.

    Where do I start. The community of Victoria Street has not been notified at all. The street is very peaceful and this will be very disruptive. It also is a safety issue, for the large amount of children that play & roam freely. Also the fact that the owner of 45 is a council man himself with young children seems a little corrupt as he should be aware of the notification issue of the surrounding community. I'm very disappointed

    This may interest a few people in the local neighbourhood.

    Victoria st is beautiful as is and does not need this! A 24 lot subdivision would completely destroy the homes to so many native species. And cause havoc and impact everybody in the street. It would be an absolute shame if this gets through, and I’m sure it will considering the owner is apart of the council. I don’t even live in the street I just think it’s so unnecessary and the people behind it only have one thing in mind… 💵
    I think if the people in the street actually knew what was happening you would have a lot more complaints not everybody gets or looks at the planning alert emails.

    I am not opposed to some sort of development here as long it is done without ridding too many trees and keeping with the rest of the area, but above all, with complete transparency from the owner and developer. Who happens to be a lake macquarie councillor who intends to run for Lake Macquarie mayor on December 4th. This has been in the planning stages for quite a while but has only come to light in the last month when Montgomery homes starting advertising and selling house and land packages before the DA was submitted. They have already sold several lots, Well before any of the residents were even aware, some still dont know. The offical letter from the council only started to arrive a couple of days ago and we didn't even recieve one and we live opposite. How is this allowed to happen without any community input?

    I am writing to object to the proposal for 45 Victoria Street, Teralba to turn 1 lot into 24 lot subdivisions.

    I object on the following grounds:

    INCREASE IN TRAFFIC
    The development will bring potentially 48 additional cars on this street plus the trucks required during the building period.
    Families who live on the street chose to live there because it is a quiet street and their children can safely ride their bikes and can safely play.
    According to reports and according to the submission by Mrs Morley-Davies trucks will need to back out over the bridge, which makes it unsafe, particularly considering it is a street where children play and ride their bikes.
    As there is no access to sewer on that side of the road, this would require additional works and traffic.

    IMPACT ON THE LOCAL RESIDENTS
    The property was purchased with the knowledge that the property was not sub-divided.
    I not that Michael Lockwood felt that the value of his property and other properties would be reduced as a consequence of such a development. Those who live in the area live there because it is a quiet street so the appeal of other properties would be reduced.
    This development would cause the transition from a quiet street to a busy road.
    Victoria Street is obviously a local community and this development would greatly diminish the ambience for current residents.

    FLOODING
    Mrs Morley-Davies (a long-time resident) stated in her submission that there has been flooding 5 times during the fifty years she has lived there. There is also already significant erosion in the area and this would be exacerbated by the development.

    SAFETY
    There are insufficient exits in case of a bush fire so residents lives would be at risk.

    REMOVAL OF TREES
    105 trees is a very significant loss to the area, and there is significant wildlife that depend on those trees. Species that can be found on the property according to submissions and comments include rosellas, lorikeets, magpies (who all nest on this property) as well as sea eagles and Ospreys, which are both considered threatened species. Removal of these trees will reduce the habitat corridor for native animals.

    I note that Ms Victoria Morley-Davies (who grew up in the area and her family has lived there for 50 years) was also concerned that koalas rely on the habitat.

    PREVIOUSLY REJECTED
    I believe that a submission I previously read stated a similar sub-division by a previous owner was rejected. If this is the case and this DA is approved then it is very important that Council publicly state what changes have occurred to support approval for this very similar application.

    As a local resident I am very grateful for the opportunity to comment and thank you for this opportunity.

    As previously stated , and a long term resident, has any reports been done on the flood impact? We have letters dating back to 2003 asking council to look into the the extent of diversion and filling on the downstream of the creek .Does the access to the property have a suitable method of disposal of water directed to the creek without affecting adjoining land in 1:10 ari storms ? Is a bridge required to access this land as water flows pretty hard in Good downpours . With all the extra houses proposed, and assuming all have rain tanks that will be full eventually, every time there is a solid few days of rain the excess water will be like a 1-100 year flood more often now ..is the adjoining properties responsible for the up keep of this extra water now or is it the developers who are creating this extra problem there concern? All for housing to go ahead , but nobody’s actually asked the residents of Victoria street the actual impact this is going to cause now and down the track …
