In Lewisham NSW on “To construct a 6 part 9...” at Longport Street Lewisham NSW 2049:

Agree and second the comments above by Kelly Wratten.

Also can Council please explain what additional public transport infrastructure that will be put into this area to cope with this already overdeveloped very small area of turf. The road at the intersection of Old Canterbury Rd and Railway Terrace is already a nightmare and a car park at most times of the day. Please don't give us the 'we want people to ride bikes and car share and discourage car ownership naivety' rubbish. Plus Council have already admitted that the Light Rail is ineffectual and currently at capacity. There are one or two buses servicing the immediate area as far as I'm aware. And Lewisham train line is really the only public transport option and those trains only depart every 15 mins in peak hour.

Any plans for additional health services to support all the additional residents that Council are jamming into Lewisham and Dulwich Hill? Child care?

There seems to be absolutely no planning either short term or long term by local Council and/or in conjunction with State Government.

And I keep asking myself why have development guidelines when you don't need them. A complete and obvious waste of money. Most DA's are approved in the long run anyway with no regard for the existing residents and ratepayers.

Shaking my head in absolute disbelief.
