    I cannot believe that this development is even being considered! The lack of appropriate, reliable public transport as well as the incredible existing traffic problems make this even more difficult for existing rate paying residents and ridiculous!

    As a local resident who uses Old Sth Hd Rd on numerous occasions per week this DA has chosen a very bad choice of location for a Snrs residence!!

    Old Sth Hd Rd at this location is VERY dangerous at most times of the ordinary day and particularly dangerous at school start & finish hours. The Cnr location will create a more dangerous situation especially considering the 2 layers of underground parking planned....did the 'planner' consider how the cars will enter safely ??? and the impact that will have on Old Sth Hd Rd traffic and pedestrians ...which is a very BUSY Rd with blind spots driving Nth.

    The photos (2856344.PDF) included on the Application by Batessmart are an inaccurate depiction of Old Sth Hd Rd at that Cnr ...the 'wide angled' lens used to take the photo of the Cnr location gives a false impression of the narrow & Busy nature of this location.

    The Construction phase of the proposed development will force Old Sth Hd Rd to close numerous times and thus traffic will be halted and/or, drivers will be forced to take New Sth Hd Rd which is already an extremely busy Rd (read Car park) on most school days 7.30-9.30am & 2.30-4.30pm.

    Waverley Council need to ask the Developer to relocate this planned Retirement Village to a safer more appropriate location.

    The roads are already so congested and this HUGE development of 31 units will add at least 31 more cars to the road. Even now we can have a queue of 6 cars trying to enter OSH Road from Diamond Bay Road!!!
    I agree with Lea Bellamy - how can such a development even be considered!!
    THIS AREA IS ALREADY FULL

    This mega-structure would be the nail in the coffin of the residential character of the neighbourhood. It would more than double the number of residents with already insufficient parking, exacerbating the horrendous traffic along OSH Road. It’s almost as if the developer has put forward the most egregious possible proposal in order to force a compromise at some other mega structure that shouldn’t be allowed. Please send them back to the drawing board with a more reasonable proposal to start from.

    This development would completely disturb the residential character of the neighbourhood. It would more than double the number of residents with already insufficient parking, exacerbating the horrendous traffic along OSH Road. It will put unnecessary pressure on public transport and congestion in the area. THis proposal is very unreasonable and doesnt fit wtihin the current suburban and neighbourhood landscape.
