    Wendy McDonald commented

    You have the Link Rd to use instead of Aldenham Rd, it is only used by the School so utilise it for access to New Development. Aldenham Rd has no Footpaths or Gutters and everyone walks the road.We will be between to Schools soon The Grammer School And Porters Creek School and if our road is open where do you think the traffic will short cut up our Rd bypassing the traffic lights to go to school.This is a busy road now with each house having at least 2 cars and they are building 14 unit in our Rd more cars just ridiculous.People in this Rd paid for it to be sealed and we want the end Closed . Use the Link Road

  2. In San Remo NSW on “Bottle Shop” at 45 Liamena Avenue San Remo NSW 2262:

    Sharon commented

    We dont need another bottleshop in the area, First choice is less than 1km away, the result of allowing this will create unrest in the local community, broken glass in the park, playground and lakefront, fights, yelling and drunk people frequenting the area. I strongly do not support this application and hope the council or other governing parties use common sense.

  3. In Wadalba NSW on “29 Lot Residential Subdivision” at 180 Johns Road Wadalba NSW 2259:

    Drew commented

    Please no more dual living/ duplexes or care homes. Way to many already, especially in the green hill estate. Already does not feel like a family neighbour hood because of this. More like a housing commission vibe. Would like to see family owned homes and not investment properties rented to care homes.

    100% agree with what josh said.

    Josh Preston commented

    A Dual Occupancy & 2 Lot Torrens doesn’t fit in with the current houses in Glenning Valley, and for that reason alone it shouldn’t be approved.

    Thanks, Josh

    There are no parks or green space for the densely housed community. A recreation space is required there are none in the immediate area which provides easy access for children near their homes

  10. In Long Jetty NSW on “Boarding House with 8 Rooms...” at 48 McLachlan Avenue Long Jetty NSW 2261:

    Craig anderson commented

    This suburb has gone from a terrible suburb to now being one of the nicest suburbs on the central coast why ruin it, the central coast council really needs to think about this before accepting this development, although I doubt they would care as none of them live near by. To elaborate the suburb alongside shelly beach have achieved new property records each year. I also think the councillors need to think more strategically as they do not realise this will bring the house price down in the area, therefore getting rid of wealthier people within the area and hence resulting in less tax money for the council.

  11. In Long Jetty NSW on “Boarding House with 8 Rooms...” at 48 McLachlan Avenue Long Jetty NSW 2261:

    David McCarthy commented

    Why not just make it a normal house hold, there has been a petition signed by over 1000 people, stop being selfish and learn to respect other neighbourhoods.

  12. In Tumbi Umbi NSW on “Transitional Group Home and...” at 30 Bakali Road Tumbi Umbi NSW 2261:

    Ian Powell commented

    I understand that these facilities are required but the location of this particular application is not acceptable. I am concerned about the close proximity to a retirement village where there are vulnerable members of the community and I believe the knock on effect could be detrimental to a lot of the residents. Please ensure this application is denied

  13. In Wyong NSW on “Pylon Sign with LED Display” at Masonic Centre Wyong 365 Pacific Highway Wyong NSW 2259:

    Hi I’m a bit confused is that the old Masonic club but is there a funeral home? commented

  14. In Yarramalong NSW on “Function Centre and use of...” at 1376 Yarramalong Road Wyong Creek NSW 2259:

    Rebecca commented

    Would be interested to know more about this considering we paid a large sum of money to have our wedding in the early up barn. We were promised lots of things by Ms Cooney including the barn and surrounding areas being completed in time which it was not. At no point were we advised the structure was not DA approved, in fact we were told the opposite. Would we be entitled to compensation of some form since she was not a legal wedding venue?

  15. In Charmhaven NSW on “Secondary Dwelling” at 101 Pacific Highway Charmhaven NSW 2263:

    ronda petrie commented

    Is it possible to see plans gor this dwelling?

  16. In Wyong NSW on “Relocated dwelling” at 53 Panonia Road Wyong NSW 2259:

    Nick and Margaret Naughton commented

    This development does not fit in with the character of the area.
    The entry landings appear substandard as they are narrow and extremely close to the boundary.

  17. In Toukley NSW on “Change of Use from Nursing...” at Toukley Nursing Home 51 Peel Street Toukley NSW 2263:

    Gaye and Graham Wilson commented

    Nobody has told us anything regarding this building and we live next door in Toukley Waters Village. We would not be very happy for this many young people with vehicles living in such a confined space. At the moment our street is very quiet and serene the way we like it and hopefully it will stay that way.

  18. In Toukley NSW on “Change of Use from Nursing...” at Toukley Nursing Home 51 Peel Street Toukley NSW 2263:

    Margaret McEwen-Hatton commented

    We heard this is going to be a Boarding House for males. Most of us retired people came here for a quiet life. In all honesty these people will be alcoholics and drug addicted, good bye quite life. In Thomas St we have 24 units being built, isn’t this enough new people in our area when our roads and bus service is not wonderful. We live in 15a Lakeview St it is my 3rd house in Toukley. We moved from Sydney 18 yrs ago and enjoy the area but now there is several units and low cost housing being built within this area with no notification made to the community. I don’t want to move and nor should I have to, please reconsider this both my husband and I are most upset thank you Margaret McEwen-Hatton and Bill Hatton

  19. In Wadalba NSW on “Seniors Housing Facility...” at 125 Johns Road Wadalba NSW 2259:

    anna Deegan commented

    Already the Murrawal rd residents, and the community In Wahroonga, Kilpa, marks Rds and all the attached streets have petitioned council about the short cut route taken by thousands of cars per day. They also speed making it critically unsafe for residents on Murrawal and Kilpa road corners to exit and enter their driveways. What traffic calming is going to deter speeders and shortcutters with this 122 bed development? And, not using feckless speed pillows either.
    Thanks Anna

  20. In Wyong NSW on “Staged Development -...” at 27 Howarth Street Wyong NSW 2259:

    Daniel Parker commented

    I agree with the comment above, i also think the council is hoping this will fly under the radar. It appears Wyong and the Central Coast in general is being used as a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. Has anyone from the council been to the railway station after dark? It appears as if we are being used as one big social experiment. A better use for this building would be a boarding house for the many university students who travel great distances to and from school - at least they will more then likely be taxpayers one day.

  21. In Palm Grove NSW on “Use of Existing Premises...” at 604 Ourimbah Creek Road Palm Grove NSW 2258:

    Michael Tatam commented

    The subject of this DA, “Proposed Regularisation of Existing Animal Boarding and Training Establishment” is utterly misleading and inaccurate and attempts from the outset to legitimize an illegal business that has been operating since July 2019. The Central Coast Council issued a Proposed Order (Notice/167/2019) to cease the operation of the intensive dog breeding business in October 2019.
    This DA should more accurately be titled “Proposed Regularisation of Unlawful Animal Boarding and Training Establishment".
    This is not a simple upgrade of an existing machinery shed but an attempt to legitimize an unauthorized business of breeding and keeping upto 30 small puppy dogs in cages until sold.
    This application should be rejected

  22. In Wadalba NSW on “Expansion & Reconfiguration...” at Homeland Caravan Park 195 Johns Road Wadalba NSW 2259:

    B commented

    Don't the Orr's also own Meanda Village at Wyong? Where they extort retirees into paying exorbitent prices for fixes and upgrades.
    Our Council needs to get onti this, that is all so wrong!

  25. In Wadalba NSW on “Expansion & Reconfiguration...” at Homeland Caravan Park 195 Johns Road Wadalba NSW 2259:

    Peter commented

    At present , the caravan park is home to 126 long term residents living in fixed caravans, annexes and moveable dwellings. Apparently residents have been informed that with the upgrading of the park, there will no longer be rental caravans. So basically the park owners "Orr Investment Group" want to force out low socio economic residents to make way for cashed up rich retirees. The "Orrs" also own Kangy Grove estate and they have been doing a huge amount of development activity which has seen the destruction of a large amount of protected trees, the filling of a dam which was home to variety of wildlife. They have previously been issued warnings and have received an infringement notice by council, but they still continue to cutdown trees without council approval. They also forced some low socio economic residents out of Kangy Grove estate and transferred them to Homelands caravan park, as a means of getting rid of them. Please don't let this development application be approved, otherwise we will see more destruction of the environment and low socio economic residents forced out onto the streets.

  26. In Hamlyn Terrace NSW on “148 Lot Subdivision...” at 590 Pacific Highway Hamlyn Terrace NSW 2259:

    Adel Firth-Mason commented

    I am concerned at the large number of buildings densely being planned so close together in the Hamlyn Terrace area.

    With the demographics of the area, the very real concern exists that very relevant and appropriate infrastructures are being significantly overlooked: schools, tertiary education, medical facilities, shopping centres, transport, parks, and traffic safety which includes traffic lights and parking.

    A lack of due process in these vital concerns will lead to greater concerns in the next 10, 20, and 30 years. Central Coast Council needs to consider these matters conscientiously in all its subdivision planning.

  27. In Hamlyn Terrace NSW on “56 lot subdivision (53...” at 1-15 Hamlyn Road Hamlyn Terrace NSW 2259:

    james clark commented

    I have to say that the addition of more housing in the area with no clear for provision for new schools and community facilities, putting pressure onto already over crowded resources, shows a lack of forethought, stinks somewhat, and i think a freeze on further housing in this conurbation would be a wise move until the state and federal government has shown a commitment to infrastructure in the area, and building work has begun. The local schools are already full. Where do they expect all the new kids to go? Private?

  28. In Hamlyn Terrace NSW on “56 lot subdivision (53...” at 1-15 Hamlyn Road Hamlyn Terrace NSW 2259:

    Adel Firth-Mason commented

    It would benefit the aesthetics of the neighbourhood if CCC could please ensure that the new development ensures variety in the architecture and colour of the buildings, provision for plants and shrubs, and streets wide enough for street parking on both sides of the road.

    Also, each time these new developments are approved by CCC, please remember it's for an area which already has insufficient retail outlets and car parking, schools and tertiary facilities, and a more regular train service direct from Warnervale Station to Sydney and return without standing room only.

  30. In Hamlyn Terrace NSW on “91 Small Lot Housing...” at 700 Pacific Highway Hamlyn Terrace NSW 2259:

    Craig Burke commented

    Lets make this clear where is the infrastructure to support this? The developers couldnt care less about the community the roads in particular warnervale rd are in a terrible state the town planner at central coast council has got some serious questions to answer you cant just keep squashing house after house into hamlyn terrace .
    Council aready cant keep the parks mowed or fix the roads STOP ...qnd the ruse about affordable housing is being taken advantage of by developers does anyone on council actually look at the rental prices being asked? Hardly affordable...this council should be voted out!!!!
