    Steve Taylor commented

    Once again another invisible application. Where is it 21 Greenview Drive is a huge area. Surely this development will tip the current subdivision acces over its limits as it is now.

    Don & Rosemary Mortimer commented

    Please advise details of the DA application 449/20209/DA whether there are to be visable external additions to the present dwelling both to the street and rear.

  4. In Hallidays Point NSW on “Manufactured Home Estate” at 303 Blackhead Road, Hallidays Point NSW 2430:

    Mr Andrew Nash commented

    Good Evening Mid Coast Council,
    I am extremely bewildered, as to why these Corporations ( Matthew Wales for Joint Venture P/L ) still try and impose these Manufactured Home Estates ( MHE ) into an existing area, where there is minimal room or no subsequent room for additional dwellings. This is at least the third attempt for this proposed Estate of Manufactured Homes, directly adjacent to Tallwoods Village. I would like to strongly object to this proposed development as the current infrastructure would not be able to handle all of the additional cars on the nearby roads and also not to mention, the added pressure and additional Water and Sewerage Services in the Local Area. As I am writing this Email to you, there are already countless Individual Dwellings being constructed in and around the Land on the Tallwoods Village Golf Course Site. In conclusion, based on all of the above reasons, I would like to strongly object to the proposed New Dwellings at 303 Blackhead Road, Tallwoods Village, Hallidays Point, NSW, 2430.

  5. In Coopernook NSW on “Use Only - Deck and garage...” at 17 High Street, Coopernook NSW 2426:

    M. Beange commented

    The current owner purchased this in good faith from the vendor through a local real estate agent. No one alerted him to any existing problems regarding any part of the property or dwelling, including neighbours. He has done everything in his control to have this situation fixed and has been kept waiting for 12 months by various parties involved. The deck, driveway and carport do not adversely affect anyone and will allow the owner and family to access their home with reasonable comfort. Neighbouring properties have garages, sheds etc that are similar to those on this property. The current owner bought the house as it is and only seeks to resolve the matter without disadvantages to anyone.

    I was wondering who the developers are? It states on Midcoast Council that the company is, Australian AC Partners Property Pty Ltd. Who are they and who is Edith Burgess? These developments are not suitable for this area because of traffic congestion, lack of infrastructure and facilities and transport. It is difficult enough for the wildlife now without added over development of sites.
    I must agree with Anne Mayne and Patricia Lamey.

    I have not made any donation or gift to a Councillor or Council Employee.

    Sorry the approval was 2005 not 2095.

    Simon Burgess commented

    This is an amendment to an existing DA approval for a retirement village and nursing home approved in 2095 by council. This is not a new application and what is proposed are not 'huts'.

    Clare Taylor commented

    What has happened with Gateway's application to the Land and Environment Court submitted last year and also what was the result of a site meeting which took place between Council, representatives of the Land and Environment Court and concerned residents?
    I think residents deserve an answer.
    Thanks,
    Clare Taylor

    Patricia Lamey commented

    This looks like a manufactured homes site and not a retirement village a new DA should be presented for community consultation !
    This property is in the path of fires coming across from Darawank reserve and it is dangerous to place so many of these huts there
    The roadside is unsuitable and dangerous for entry and exit
    There is only 1 road in and out to Lakesway making evacuation a risk in fire prone area
    There is not the infrastructure to support dense housing in this are
    The block is heavily wooded and near the Koala corridor
    The plan for these huts is not in keeping with the area amenity
    The transport to towns is limited
    We have no permanent doctor at Halliday’s point

  12. In Black Head NSW on “Subdivision - 2 Lot” at 21 Greenview Drive, Black Head NSW 2430:

    Steven Taylor commented

    I would suggest that the sub-division of this lot into two will place even more strain on the already poor infrastructure in the estate. We note that the current entry to the estate is by no means safe or satisfactory for the amount of traffic already in our area. Nor the Col de sac at the bottom of Hillside Terrace (now fenced off) How many more lots until the developer who is the applicant in this will provide a more permanent and safe access to us residence.

  13. In Taree NSW on “Multi Residential - 11 Units” at 9 Fuchsia Drive, Taree NSW 2430:

    Lorrie Jones commented

    I am so very dissapointed that the Council is allowing this type of residence in an area that has people that have lived here for many years and care about each of the neighbours and their privacy.
    The road access etc will be a major concern and the difficulty of the collection bins, I could go on.

  14. In Taree NSW on “Multi Residential - 11 Units” at 9 Fuchsia Drive, Taree NSW 2430:

    Mark+Shannyn Pennings commented

    The construction of an 11 unit two story dwelling will create substantial social impact
    on the surrouding neigbourhood. Situated on a blind corner on a steeply sloping block the influx of some fifty residents with only minimal off street parking alloting only three visitor car spaces will prove problamatic. As a long term owners and ratepayers we feel
    confident Midcoast Council will oppose the development.

  15. In Hallidays Point NSW on “Manufactured Home Estate” at 303 Blackhead Road, Hallidays Point NSW 2430:

    Bill Kennedy commented

    I dont belive this is in the public interest to have such a large development.
    The current infrasture does not support it nor can the council support the increase load on the area.

  16. In Harrington NSW on “Multi-Unit Development” at 39 Josephine Boulevard, Harrington NSW 2427:

    martin stephens commented

    why should they allow 4 storey development in harrington when all others are 2 storey make it two storey only we don't need buildings of this size here

  17. In Taree NSW on “Manufactured Home Estate” at 34 Manikato Place, Taree NSW 2430:

    Lynette Matheson commented

    I would like you to note that if 2 vehicles are parked either side on Manikato pl there is only enough room for 1 car to pass(ie driving along the middle of the road) I believe the road needs to be widen if this is going to be the only entry/exit point. Also as this is a quiet neighborhood I query why there is not another entry or exit point onto Bushland drive only via Manikato place. I believe that 2 entry/exit points would better suit this type of development. I also query noise issues with so many houses with no age restrictions (ie families with children can take up residency)I would of supported it more if it was an over 50's type village. I believe there will be increase in noise affecting current residents as this is a quiet neighborhood most people purchased for this reason. when I looked into this area before purchasing i was told only 16 more properties would take place not 50. I believe this is over populating this area.
    I would like to Thankyou for considering my objections to this development without changes in road entry/exit points and also on noise.
    I look forward to your reply

  18. In Harrington NSW on “Residential Alterations and...” at 15 Huntress Street, Harrington NSW 2427:

    Terry Tamplin commented

    Helen
    This is called progress you will have to accept it. Agree with you comment regarding open space, however, development means increased growth and increased benefits for Harrington.
    Cheers

  19. In Harrington NSW on “Residential Alterations and...” at 15 Huntress Street, Harrington NSW 2427:

    helen anderson commented

    More open space areas need to be planned for Harrington. It is being swallowed up by housing estates/developments so that Harrington looks just like every other small community on the eastern seaboard. Enough is enough. Set appropriate realistic land aside for the future.

  20. In Taree NSW on “Multi Residential - 11 Units” at 9 Fuchsia Drive, Taree NSW 2430:

    Jane Dargaville commented

    I prefer this kind of medium density development in town to any urban spread into bush or agricultural land. We can't keep mowing down trees and other vegetation to provide for human residences. Concerns about privacy can be met by ensuring the developers meet (improved) requirements to properly landscape: i.e. ensure developments are landscaped and that trees and shrubs are planted along borders and maintained to maturity. A similar two-storey townhouse development exists between Wynter and Little Wynter streets in Taree (and has been there for years) where fully mature trees provide more than adequate privacy for neighbouring properties. The major issues for me as this kind of medium density becomes more popular are: design, they need to be more energy efficient and social cohesion needs to be promoted with the creation of better community services and neighbouring green spaces.

  21. In Taree NSW on “Multi Residential - 11 Units” at 9 Fuchsia Drive, Taree NSW 2430:

    Glenn Maddox commented

    the concentrated two story units on one boundary has a profound influence on our privacy as 3 to 4 units will have direct view looking down into our back yard .

  22. In Hallidays Point NSW on “Retirement village (staged)” at 361 Blackhead Road, Hallidays Point NSW 2430:

    Anne Mayne commented

    No, this is not 303 Black Head Road, but 361 which is immediately next door on Black Head Road, and supposed to be a Retirement Village (staged). 303 was rejected initially by Council, but delayed so long with the decision the owners now have the right to go to the Land and Environment Court to have it approved. It seems we may have not only 202 manufactured homes approved, but now another development raises its ugly head right next door. Literally hundreds of dwellings of whatever kind with a lousy road, lack of transport, nowhere near shops or beach - GO FIGURE!!
    I have not made any donation or gift to a Councillor or Council employee.

    Anne Mayne, Tallwoods.

    Is this the site of the Gateway manufactured homes estate which was previously rejected by Council?

  24. In Wallabi Point NSW on “3 x Townhouses” at 18 Walter Fay Street, Wallabi Point NSW 2430:

    Mr Gary Jones commented

    We reside at 3 Howard St, which seems to be adjacent to the proposed construction of 3 terrace houses. We already have one two-storey construction adjacent to our property, about which we received no opportunity for consultation. Because we have no other information about this new development, we are concerned about the height of the development, and how close it will be to our boundary. We would appreciate any further information about this development that you could provide. Our contact phone number is 0459 925 045.

  25. In Old Bar NSW on “Manufactured Home Estate...” at 119 Forest Lane, Old Bar NSW 2430:

    Christina Gibbs commented

    Forest lane needs to be completed to reduce traffic in Wyden Street. This was meant to be completed when Ocean Links was approved. This area needs two safe roads to exit, in case of an evacuation.
    The regrading that continues, only lasts for a couple of weeks. Given the traffic and additional rates that council is collecting. Now is the time to seal this road, once and for all.

  26. In Hallidays Point NSW on “Manufactured Home Estate” at 303 Blackhead Road, Hallidays Point NSW 2430:

    Saxon Williams commented

    PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT - 1303 Black Head Road Tallwoods,

    For me, when I saw the plans I was agog. Has the developer looked around the area?

    So many beautiful detached homes on large blocks. So a project that shoves as many shoe boxes into one site as possible is just wrong and must not be entertained by Council.

    It is that simple.

    The roads within the estate are so narrow... why? So the developer can maximise their return. There is no thought about the beautiful area the community has built. Just build a slum, bag the money and run.

  27. In Diamond Beach NSW on “Subdivision - 89 Lots,...” at 310 Diamond Beach Road, Diamond Beach NSW 2430:

    Col Lynch commented

    Creating a new beach access is part of the DA . The issue of parking, that has not been addressed.

  28. In Diamond Beach NSW on “Subdivision - 89 Lots,...” at 310 Diamond Beach Road, Diamond Beach NSW 2430:

    Kaye Matthews commented

    It would be beneficial if the application included creating a separate additional access to the beach so that more strain isn't placed on existing car spaces at the main access to Diamond Beach.
    No one wants to see arguments about cars blocking driveways and this would help to avoid that situation.

  29. In Old Bar NSW on “Multi unit development x 40” at 32 Lewis Street, Old Bar NSW 2430:

    zona brown commented

    totally agree with Christina Gibbs Forest Lane is in a disgusting condition for the traffic on it . the developer needs to complete it no more land development .

  30. In Old Bar NSW on “Multi unit development x 40” at 32 Lewis Street, Old Bar NSW 2430:

    Christina Gibbs commented

    Forest Lane needs to be completed by developers before further land is developed. There needs to be alternative access for safety and if the area needs to be evacuated.
