    Debbie Wileman commented

    Re the proposal to build a community Facility Revesby Heights-
    I appose this proposal. If the site is going to be a community centre it should be used as a council community centre for ALL residents of Canterbury Bankstown not just for a particular race or religion. The area is 'Heroes Hill' and it should be kept that way in their honour. Our small village atmosphere will change and will not cope with any more traffic in the area. The parking is already a nightmare with all the development happening. We have a new residential and restaurant site in progress now opposite the proposed facility that will increase the burden of traffic and parking to the area. There would be an impact on the road conditions from increased vehicular use with cars that would travel to this facility daily. Morotai Road is chaos now with thru traffic especially buses trying to gain access. My firm response is NO as it would not serve the residents of the area but have a negative impact on the residents of this area.

    Re the proposal to build a community Facility Revesby Heights-
    I appose this proposal The site should not be used as a community centre we have not been informed as to who it will benefit and what it will be used for. There is no information been made available to the residents of the area.
    The site was gazetted as a memorial site and as a widow of a "trobuk Rat" I feel it is a slight on the memory of our service men. Furthermore the impact on the surrounding district would be extreme. The parking is already problematic. We have a Park within a short distance of the proposed facility although this does service the residents of the area Parking is at its limit weekends and weeknights. We have a new recently approved development residential and restaurant site opposite the proposed facility that will increase the burden of traffic and parking to the area. There would be an impact on the road conditions from increased vehicular use with cars that would travel to this facility daily. My firm response is No it would not serve the residents of the area but have a negative impact on the residents of this area.

  3. In Panania NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 146 Lambeth Street Panania NSW 2213 Australia:

    Cathy Wilson commented

    High density not appropriate for the area. Too close to Panania Public School, limited parking and traffic congestion at drop off and pick up times. There is never enough parking allowed by the developers, many families having at least 2 cars plus visitors cars to be considered. Spoiling this beautiful suburb that was chosen by many because of the style of housing, space and sense of community. Not everyone wants to live in or beside these towering structures. Sadly for those living beside these developments, a lot of over shadowing, loss of privacy. Huge developments already taking place in Ramsay Rd and Kennedy St. Please consider the strong views of your current ratepayers Bankstown Council.

    Rob Eager commented

    This is the thin edge of the wedge. Who approves this, considering we have no councilors, who can we vote out if approved? Will we hear any justification if approved.

    Rob.

    Sarah Perry commented

    Are you SERIOUS ... the street is conjested as it is due to too many duplex residence replacing old homes. The Picnic Point Bowling Club has approval to construct a Child Care Centre not more than 100 metres away on the same side of the same street. It is outside a school where Kindy to year 2 enter and exit every day. I wonder who at Council will get kickbacks to approve this DISASTER.

  6. In Panania NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 146 Lambeth Street Panania NSW 2213 Australia:

    Dave commented

    It is not zoned for this type of development. Parking at Panania Public School is becoming more difficult as more duplexes are built. If this type of development is allowed parking will become impossible. Developers are becoming too greedy!

    Deb Gallagher commented

    I grew up in Lambeth St please stop over crowding our roads n sewer systems can't cope. They say one of the biggest soul destroying things is lack of space please don't take that away from us

  8. In Panania NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 146 Lambeth Street Panania NSW 2213 Australia:

    Tom commented

    This is not zoned for units, it is a LZN-B1 - B1 Neighbourhood Centre zoning - shops only.

    Council please review.

  9. In Panania NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 146 Lambeth Street Panania NSW 2213 Australia:

    Concerned commented

    The zoning for this side of Lambeth St is not approved for high density housing. Please review as it is opposite a school and near a bowling club. limited on street parking, building work and residence parking on road permanently will obstruct school zone making it dangerous for children.

  10. In Panania NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 146 Lambeth Street Panania NSW 2213 Australia:

    Elizabeth commented

    I think that this is, unfortunately, another example of over development in the area, I am not sure how 12 units with residents, visitors and cars will fit in here. Is there any information about the type of commercial development? I wish the Council would listen to residents and not developers. It is a nice quiet area and the current hairdresser is amazing.

  11. In Panania NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 146 Lambeth Street Panania NSW 2213 Australia:

    Terri commented

    Too many units for this location. Not enough street parking. Will stick out like a sore thumb.

  12. In Panania NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 146 Lambeth Street Panania NSW 2213 Australia:

    Rebecca commented

    Not a fan of so many units going up. Especially with a primary school across the road and so many little kids. Traffic is bad enough as it is with drop off and pick up and will be dangerous if the u it's go up.

    Karina commented

    Not a fan of units going up
    In our neighbourhood
    It just creates more traffic
    More congestion

    Look at Strathfield with there insane unit structures
    It's ridiculous it's like so confined and messy

  14. In East Hills NSW on “Proposed dual occupancy &...” at 9 Ogilvie Street East Hills NSW 2213 Australia:

    vinnie commented

    The new committee is a joke. You get to write your submission and it is tabled at a meeting. The committee does not go to the site to see if the submission is valid or not!! These people probably have never been in the area/suburb. The committee should be made up of people in the area, not the current members.

  15. In Milperra NSW on “Demolition of Existing...” at 22 Prescott Parade Milperra NSW 2214 Australia:

    Jane Citizen commented

    I have concerns that this block is far too small for a dual occupancy subdivision if the large pool is being retained. The pool spans the length of the entire rear fence. This will leave one side with incredibly small block on which a duplex of any substance could not possibly be built.

  16. In Georges Hall NSW on “Section 82A Review of...” at 203 Birdwood Road Georges Hall NSW 2198 Australia:

    Peter Stevens commented

    As previous stated this development will cause more traffic congestion that currently exists in the Georges Hall Shopping area . There is not one Pedestrian Safety Crossing in this area which is surrounded by several schools of all types.. We have contacted the RTA regarding this and they advise it is an Council matter, who to date have only discussed putting up safety bollards around the shops but not a Pedestrian Safety Crossing which would more sense. Combine this development with the proposed one at the Georges Hall Squash Centre DA 1275/2015 we will all have to avoid the Georges Hall Shopping Area to do any shopping.

  17. In Panania NSW on “Demolition of all existing...” at 229 Tower Street Panania NSW 2213 Australia:

    Concerned local commented

    What provisions and resources are the council and developers putting in to sustain a high number of population being introduced? The surrounding schools are full and panania cbd is congested at all times.

    There needs to be more consideration of parking, parking limits as well as council parking to cater to the growing number of people and cars this development will cause.

    Surrounding streets such as Lambeth st will need to have provisions put in to stop by pass traffic and speeding traffic using the development.

    Likewise, surrounding streets will need to have restricting street parking as current congestion causes difficulty in driving. These conditions will worsen when more are brought in.

    What impact will this development have on the surrounding location during construction? What provisions will be put in place and where will builders be parking? How will this development occur during peak hours? What traffic relief will be in place to help relieve congestion?

  18. In Panania NSW on “Demolition of all existing...” at 229 Tower Street Panania NSW 2213 Australia:

    Dan commented

    This needs to include sufficient parking:
    a) for the private dwellings
    b) for the new shops
    c) preferably some "council" parking, as this area of Panania lacks necessary council parking

    Bhanu commented

    When this building will be demolished?

  20. In Revesby Heights NSW on “Demolish existing...” at 114 Centaur Street Revesby Heights NSW 2212 Australia:

    A. Harris commented

    This area is being overbuilt with duplexes and other developments. There is an enormous apartment block only 10 houses up from here which was approved without sufficient parking underneath for the 18 apartments above. By further developing this street with multiple homes you will cause traffic chaos and parking issues in an area that is quiet and family friendly. There have already been over 20 duplex developments approved this quarter alone. Stop the overdevelopment of Revesby Heights!

  21. In Georges Hall NSW on “Change of use from Tavern...” at 2 Carysfield Road Georges Hall NSW 2198 Australia:

    Kim Leon commented

    What is actually going to happen or planned for this area? Who is going to use the facility, for how many people and how often?

  22. In Condell Park NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 131 Eldridge Road Condell Park NSW 2200 Australia:

    Wendy C commented

    I am against the development of a public place of worship at this location for the following reasons:

    - Further traffic congestion along Eldridge Road. It currently can take me 20-30 mins something just to pass this intersection. Constructing a building as such here will only exacerbate the traffic problem here;
    - Together with added traffic problem, there will also be additional noise pollution in the neighbourhood. We do not need further noise pollution from impatient and frustrated drivers pressing horns;
    - Thirdly, based on the plans we received previously and structure of the building, we do not need members of the religion to be ringing bells at midnight. We currently have a turbo shop near the area and are constantly hearing engine and tire sounds late at night. These noises can sometimes last past 10pm. We do not need further noise added to this in the area.

    Please consider this very carefully as due to the above factors. We do no need further noise and traffic pollution in the area.

  23. In Bankstown NSW on “Use of existing garage for...” at 303 Stacey Street Bankstown NSW 2200:

    M yalema commented

    This is not a remedial massage place It is a fully run and operating brothel. amonst homes
    With young children and boys with 3 Asian ladies . Google the address and see the filth and reviews that come up on some site called parlor pages. Neighbors and council must act.

  24. In Milperra NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 2 Ganmain Crescent Milperra NSW 2214 Australia:

    Local Resident commented

    Dual occupancy with torrens tittle subdivision is not suitable for the Milperra area.
    Henry Lawson Drive cannot handle the current amount of vehicles during the peak hour periods.
    Milperra does not need more dwellings, it only makes it worse for this tight nit community.

  25. In Georges Hall NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 23 Cumberland Avenue Georges Hall NSW 2198 Australia:

    malcolm mcfarlane commented

    How high will the structure be. Where is the shadow line. How close to the adjoining fence will the structure be. are there any windows over looking adjoining properties, Is the current building set back to be maintained. Can I view the proposed plan to make comment..

  26. In Panania NSW on “Demolition of the existing...” at 13 Ellen Street Panania NSW 2213:

    Steve Tzatzimakis commented

    I think that this is a great application and should definitely be approved. It will add more value to our area and sorounding properties. Panania is becoming a very developed suburb and It's great driving through the area and seeing beautiful new homes built. It's also good to see that a home is proposed to be built as opposed to a duplex.

  27. In Padstow NSW on “Change of use of an...” at 19 Enterprise Avenue Padstow NSW 2211:

    Geoff Wilkins commented

    Dear Rosemary,

    This facility should be approved as there is a large Muslim community in the Banks town LGA and there is a lack of places for us to gather and meet.

    Also the mixed use facility will be used for male and female patrons at the same time. I'm not sure where you are getting the facts that male only people will use the facility.

    The facility is also in a industrial area, away from any houses.

    To be honest if this was a Brothel, Church, Buddhist Temple, or Synagogue I don't think you would be making a fuss about it.

  28. In Padstow NSW on “Sec 96 Increase first floor...” at 45 Ronald Street Padstow NSW 2211:

    Jamie Moss commented

    We live next door at 43 Ronald Street Padstow. The demolision crew have damaged our brand new colourfence fence. They somewhat repaired it but its still badly damaged.

    Please advise to the owner of 45 Ronald Street that he is to repair the colourbond fence when he has completed the dweilling.

  29. In Padstow NSW on “Change of use of an...” at 19 Enterprise Avenue Padstow NSW 2211:

    Rosemary Michail commented

    Should NOT be approved!
    This is an attempt for a group of males largely ages 18-55 to congregate & utilize the facility largely as a "place of worship"& a place to attend Friday sermons in Arabic.
    If approved it will serve similar function as a mosque/prayer hall.
    This site is very close to a public school
    1) it does not have adequate parking facilities
    2) will not be used for its intended/stated purpose
    3) even if used for its intended purpose will not be commensurate with the surrounding industrial facilities
    4) is further not suited to its location Due to ingress/egress issues as well as safety issues for emergency vehicular access etc)
    5) is not a service/facility that will be available & accessible to the people located within its immediate surrounds ie) it services a male minority who are not currently located in Padstow
    6) how does this facility differ from any of those in Punchbowl Bankstown Revesby & Le Kimba???

  30. In Chester Hill NSW on “Strata title subdivision of...” at 38 Fuller Street Chester Hill NSW 2162:

    Chris Smith commented

    I am neighbour to this property and need to contact owner in regards to trees causing damage to border fences.
