    SUBMISSION FOR Application Number: DA-2013/167
    Property Address: 2 Frederick Street, Rockdale, NSW 2216

    I object to this proposed development on the following grounds:
    * Increased noise and vehicle traffic. This section of Rockdale already "severely" lacks parking facilities for local residents.
    * Nearby residential apartments already under construction in Rockdale which will already add to worsening traffic conditions, parking, noise and littering.
    * Places of worship are abundant in the area (for various denominations) including adjacent suburbs, there is no requirement to construct additional places of worship. This particular space would be better utilised to cater for all residents regardless of religion/denomination
    * Operating hours between 5.30 am until 9.30 pm, 7 days a week is completely unwarranted & unreasonable and will impede on the quality of life of nearby residents. It's difficult to fathom why these proposed operating hours are so long. Which nearby resident wants to be disturbed at the early hour of 5.30am up until 9.30pm? whether its vehicles parking, doors slamming, horns tooting, people conversing etc not to mention the added problem of parking throughout the entire operating hours.
    * Motorists may also breach the use of the proposed driveway/carpark area as a shortcut to bypass traffic lights resulting in traffic accidents.
    * Increased traffic and loitering, specifically during religious gatherings etc.

    I have chosen to conceal my identity and address. I pass this particular section of Rockdale on a daily basis as part of my work commute and live nearby.

    Kind Regards

    Being a resident of a nearby house, I am not very happy about this new development.
    I don’t think the area is in need of any public place of worship. There are several places of worship already available in the suburb or in the adjacent suburbs.
    I believe the development will create further unnecessary traffic to the area. There is already limited parking space around the station.
    I think the opening hours are completely unreasonable. Why does the place needs to be open so early in the morning to so very late at night? This will create noise when residents of the nearby houses are asleep!
    I also feel that it might lead to more people hanging around the Rockdale station. I already feel unsafe walking home from the station when I finish work late. I believe it will worsen the problem.
