    As previous concerns not an address that a childcare centre is needed. We have child care centres in all streets surrounding The Esplanade, number 4 is located very close to connelks point road for pick up and drop off would congest if cars are waiting for drive in. It will bring our street quality and value down and is not needed with so many others around that are also finding it hard and struggling to meet costs of running a childcare centre. 1 on resthaven just opened up this year. Very unhappy nearby resident I have been here for 37 years and would not expect my property value to decline nor our area that has enough amenities and already struggling with traffic and parking in our street.

    The proposed demolition and construction of a child care centre at 4 The Esplanade, South Hurstville, raises serious concerns about the existing traffic conditions in the area. The street is already burdened with a high volume of cars from the existing townhouses and houses, exacerbating the traffic congestion. The nearby Connells Point Road, a major thoroughfare, consistently faces blockages during peak times due to limited intersections servicing schools.

    Introducing a child care centre on a two-way street with insufficient capacity for two-way traffic, especially when one direction is blocked, poses significant safety risks. This predicament could force drivers into making illegal U-turns at intersections further up along the road, creating further chaos and potential hazards and plenty of noise pollution. Despite previous concerns raised with the council, the issues persist and appear to intensify with this proposed development. It is imperative to address these escalating problems and question the rationale behind subjecting residents to such unnecessary challenges.

    This is ridiculous, there has just been a massive new childcare Center built on resthaven road and now another one? Where are all these children coming from? Is there some sort of baby boom? I highly doubt it since the cost of living has risen so much over the past 20 years. This will be a disaster for the residents of the street.
