    The size and nature of any within a 7(c2) conservation and scenic protection zoning must be compatible with the objectives of that zoning ... ie scenic protection.

    Development in this zoning is restricted so that it does not adversely affect the aesthetic and scenic value of the land, the setting ane already established residences.

    Objections to this development include:

    the size and scale of the development

    the impact of noise pollution (neighbours)

    traffic congestion at the junction of Reads Rd and the Central Coast Hwy
    parents of kids this age tend to drop them off / pick them up

    safety of pedestrians - especially young children

    inappropriate type and scale of development in this restricted zoning

    based on current childcare ratios, such a centre as proposed will require around 24 to 40 staff members, depending on their client age mix. most staff will travel by car. most children will be dropped off and collected by car. so on weekday mornings, one could expect anything from 120 to 160 vehicles entering Reads Road, and up to 120 exiting; in the afternoons, up to 120 entering, and 160 leaving. given the size and location of the street, just off the "Central Coast Highway", together with the need to proceed further along and either use Pitt Street, or the Tumbi Road roundabout to travel in other than a northerly direction away from Reads Road, the traffic consequences of such a large development are adverse.
    i also concur with Mr Roberts' comments re zone usage and other aspects of amenity.

    the size and scale of the development does not suit this residential area.

    (not upgrades to intersection has been shown, this would be needed)

    Reads Rd Development.

    I believe that the size and function of this proposal is not in keeping with its location. The development seems excessive for its purpose and raises questions as to whether there is any other long term intention for the Centre's use.
