    Dear General Manager
    I support the Calderwood Golf Course Tourist Development DA0541/2016 for the following reasons:
    1) The proposal has a visual appearance and scale suitable to the location.
    2) A variety of accommodation is proposed supported by other facilities which will benefit the attractiveness of the proposal in the tourism market.
    3) New employment opportunities will become available should the development proceed.

    The following concerns are raised in relation to the proposal which could be addressed by appropriate conditions should the application be approved:
    a) Ensuring that the effluent disposal system will protect the water quality of Marshall Mount Creek, Macquarie Rivulet and Lake Illawarra for their continued recreational purposes including swimming and fishing.
    b) Ensuring that no sediment leaves the construction site protecting downstream waterways and Lake Illawarra.
    c) Ensuring that the golf course and the associated accommodation and facilities are available to the local community and not restricted.

    My final concern is that the Statement of Environmental Effects purports not to include the whole of Lot 6 as part of the site north of Marshall Mount Creek is within Wollongong City Council. Should the application be approved however then it will apply to the whole of the land and therefore the Development Application and its supporting documentation should recognise this and identify the future use of the lands north of Marshall Mount Creek. As these lands are steep and well vegetated and partly zoned E2 Environmental Conservation and RU2 Rural Landscape the intensification of uses on the whole of Lot 6 is an appropriate time to consider the future conservation and enhancement of these steep and vegetated lands. In this regard I request that Shellharbour City Council in consultation with Wollongong City Council and the Applicant/Owner support a condition of Consent, should the subject application be approved, which requires the conservation and enhancement of the lands on the North side of Marshall Mount Creek in perpetuity. Such an approach would benefit the amenity and landscape of the subject tourism development and the future urban area community. In addition such an approach would provide an opportunity to extend a vegetation and wildlife corridor further east from the Illawarra Escarpment.

    Thank you for the opportunity to comment on this exciting proposal and raise concerns which I seek to be addressed by appropriate conditions.

    Yours sincerely
    Andrew Knowlson
