In Gymea Bay NSW on “Demolition of Existing...” at 203 Gymea Bay Rd Gymea Bay 2227:

Justin Heazlewood commented

I dont support the approval of this application at the proposed location.

I do support the spirit of competition and opportunity, but I think that council needs to carefully consider the logistic needs involved in this application.

1. Traffic and parking in this area is a problem. Gymea bay road is extremely busy and i would argue - already at a safety threshold for the volume of traffic that is focussed in this area
2. The difficulty in managing noise in a way that is "to be realistically expected" for an early childhood centre yet not disruptive to a neighbouring facility offering the same services - or to residents in the neighbouring properties.

As a general comment - I also consider it unnecassary to have an early childhood centre virtually right next door to another. The awkwardness of the arrangement could easily have negative effects on the daily working experience of staff at both Bay Road Kindy and the proposed service.

I would propose that it's specifically the proximity of the application to an existing well established service provider that makes the proposed application at this site to be unsuitable.
