    For the current configuration makeup of surrounding buildings this is beyond belief. There has been absolutely NO attempt to blend into the area. 8 two story units, limited parking onsite for tenants who all usually have two cars of the now larger size (ratio for parking for each unit has not changed even though there is evidence for a si8gnificant change from simple inspection and tenant survey) The garages are too small, no fire doors even though often used for storage rather than parking. Green areas . removed trees should be replaced with an equal number of LOCAL native trees (as opposed to native trees) . no community area adequate to host 6 or more people. Driveways narrow - dangerous to maneuvre in especially with no a day large vehicles (no passing areas).

    AND thats only the start of the huge concerns involved in such a large concentration.

    NO SUITABLE FOR FAMILIES, SENIORS, THOSE WITH DISABILITIES.

    NOT ONE UNIT IS SUITABLE FOR THOSE WITH DISABILITIES

    ETC ETC ETC A JUNK DEVELOPMENT WHICH WILL LOOK DEPLORABLE IN 10 YEARS TIME. GHETTO WORLD (THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME CONFIGURED MOSTLY THE SAME - REMEMBER GOVERNMENT UNIT BLOCKS - SAME SCENARIO AND SAME EVENTS TO OCCUR IN THE FUTURE - HASNT ANYONE LEARNED ANY THING ?! FRPM THE PAST .

    This IS a good example why R3 ZONING NEEDS TO BE REPEALED FOR OAK FLATS AREA. NOT SUITABLE DEVELOPMENT - ROADS TOO NARROW, INFRASTURE NOT DESIGNED TO COPE WITH ADDITIONAL DRAINAGE AND PEOPLE.

    COUNCIL NEEDS TO CARRYOUT A RANDOM SURVEY OF AROUND 30 UNITS IN THE 2529 AREA WHERE THERE ARE 4 OR MORE UNITS IN A CLUSTER/BLOCK , OF TENANTS AFTER HOURS AND DURING THE DAY, TO GET THERE VIEWS OF WHAT IS RIGHT AND WRONG WITH THEIR UNIT BLOCK, THEIR BUG BEARS ABOUT THE BLOCK AND OF COURSE WHAT THEY FOUND AS BEING AND ADVANTAGE OF LIVING AND/OR OWNING ONE OF THESE JUNK UNITS. THE FEEDBACK WOULD BE VERY USEFUL GUIDE FOR WHAT IS REALLY NEEDED IN FUTURE APPLICATIONS.

    ALL FRONT UNITS SHOULD BE SINGLE STOREY TO BLEND INTO THE STREET SCAPE AND HAVE COURT YARDS AT REAR WITH GARDEN AREA AT THE FRONT WITH A LOW (SAY MAX 1M) NOISE BARRIER TYPE WALL AT FRONT BOUNDARY

  4. Keith L LOPUSZYNSKI commented

    FENCE HIGH AT FRONT BOUNDARY AND EITHER SIDE, TO BE SET BACK TO THE FRONT SETBACK OF ADJOINING (NEIGHBOURS) BUILDING (EXCLUDING PRIVACY AND SOUND BARRIERS), SHOULD BE NO HIGHER THAN 1.2M. (NO SLOPING UP ALLOWANCE TO REMAINDER OF THE FENCE.) THUS, AVOID PRISON WALL AFFECT.

    This is getting beyond ridiculous. The congestion on the roads with the increase in traffic is reaching breaking point. Not to mention the very negative impact on the native fauna with the removal of the tress and no trees replaced.

    Streets are becoming extremely dangerous.
    Far to many car's parked on street's now even caravans that these properties that can't accommodate car's let alone vans.
    Hardly any footpaths in these area's so whilst these properties are being built utes trucks etc clogging our street's and nature strips forcing people to walk on the road literally dodging traffic in and out of parked utes and trucks.
    There seems to be no traffic control whilst delivery of frames and concrete etc and council doesn't seem to police these issues either.

    Trying to get out of your own driveway everyday is a dangerous task because of the congestion of builders vehicles, because of no footpaths bringing children home from school is an absolute dangerous task with so much building going on at one time, I think council should really start policing these issues or again do we wait till someone is injured again
