In Wahroonga NSW on “Demolition of 3 x single...” at 14 Neringah Avenue Sth, Wahroonga, NSW:

Andrew C Stiff commented

I have received notification from you regarding application DA 611/15, regarding 14-18 Neringah Ave Sth.
I reside at 10 Warwilla Ave, in a heritage listed home, one of three such in a line. I have lived here for 17 years and spent considerable time, money and effort in restoring and maintaining my home, ( circa 1880-90 )
This is a family friendly area, with backyards which provide space for children to grow and play.
Previous development in this vicinity has been limited to two and three storeys ; the proposed five storeys is not consistent with the area . The recently built flats at Wahroonga shops are not five storeys in a location where no single dwellings are affected, and it is unreasonable to allow this next to my house.
This proposal would be a massive overdevelopment of the site, which will dwarf my home and overlook my backyard which is currently private.
It will also add a great number of extra vehicle movements to an area that experiences considerable congestion, at peak times it is gridlocked.
Parking is at a premium here because of our location near the train station ,Abbotsleigh Junior School and Neringah hospital; adding more vehicles will worsen the traffic problems and heighten safety concerns; there are lots of children moving to and fro the school, commuters accessing the station., and residents using the village shops.
In conclusion this is an inappropriate development which is bad for our neighbourhood ,residents and community, and only benefits the developer. I urge you to not allow this.
