    This looks very nice, I am supportive of having some more much needed units go up here considering our shortage. I ride my bike down this street often and never see any cars, its still very quiet despite the increasing population. Rents have boomed in the past 2 years and more supply will ease prices according to the research. Being so proximal to a lot of places like belmore basin, cafes, schools, the city centre - it has high amenity and it is an appropriate place for higher density. It also has precedence with neighbouring buildings going up, so I would hope and expect something like this to be approved.

    I think this is a good idea - it’s good for Wollongong to continue to increase housing density. We need to embrace apartments if we want to live more sustainably. Plus more housing means housing is more affordable and this is a big issue for my generation. I think these kind of low- to mid-rise apartments are much more appealing than high-rises.

    I support this application, Wollongong needs more affordable housing options like this one, and this is a great location for getting around town by foot or bike

    I believe this proposed development will provide a benefit to the people of Wollongong by increasing housing supply, which is needed to help ameliorate the current short supply of dwellings and work toward improving housing affordability. The proximity to many of the city’s amenities make it a very desirable location to live, and so we should be approving developments that provide an increased availability of supply in such areas.

    I think we also should consider that every time houses and gardens are demolished the animals (eg, birds, lizards etc) are lost.
    We need to also maintain native trees and gardens to ensure we don't end up in a cement jungle. The health benefits of the natural environment are now well recognised.

    The street is a very narrow street and full of cars all of the time on both sides. Waste Service has a horrible time finding bins. There needs to be multiple garages for every Unit.
