In Rydalmere NSW on “Demolition, tree removal...” at 2 Burbang Crescent Rydalmere NSW 2116:

Grant Peaty commented

This application should not be approved. This development proposal is excessive and completely out of keeping with the surrounding neighbourhood, especially given that the broader local area has been undergoing a cyclical regeneration over the last few years, and residents have invested significant money into that process.
This proposal takes no consideration of the impact, and significant devaluation, to the surrounding properties, and residents who have invested their lives into the area.
> Rydalmere Public School - Increased traffic is a very real threat to the young school students
> Neighbouring properties - The significant devaluation of the properties of those long term constituents of the area in favour of developers wishing to make a quick profit.
There is no reason that a less aggressive proposal such as town houses could not be put forth, which would not infringe so heavily on the neighbouring properties. Given the residential and community nature of this area, town houses should be considered as the benchmark for acceptable property density in the Dundas/Rydalmere area.
I implore the council to reject this application once again, and allow the local area to continue to flourish through self-rejuvenation and local resident investment.
