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

Janelle commented

What a rediculous proposal! There is already a fully operational childcare facility right next door! Why is this even being considered??? My daughter has been attending Bay Road Kindy for the past 3 years, and I strongly believe that this new facility next door, if approved would be a huge mistake. Here are my reasons: Firstly, At drop off and pick up times, Gymea Bay rd is already a nightmare due the the school just up the road and normal peak time congestion. It is sometimes difficult to access the Bay road kindy's driveway at these times, causing added obstruction to the flow of traffic and forcing families to park on and cross the busy road with their small children. To add another childcare centre to this equation with extra cars and people stopping, parking and crossing this already busy road would potentially very dangerous to the community. Secondly, this is a residential area. Bay Rd Kindy is very conscious of the noise generated by the children out side playing and manages to keep the level of noise to a minimum for the sake of surrounding neighbours. To add another childcare centre right next door with and extra 45 children playing outside could be very disrupting to the surrounding neighbours and their right to peace and quiet. Thirdly, why place this type of competition right next door to and existing child care facility?? It threatens the livelihood and future of the existing business that has many years of experience in providing excellent child care for our community. I understand we need more child care centres, but not next to each other. This proposal should have been thrown out from the start as it makes no sense at all.
