In Saratoga NSW on “2 X Residential Flat...” at 15 Mimosa Avenue, Saratoga NSW 2251:

Jacqui Bell commented

I object to this development for a number of reasons:
1. the increased traffic around this already busy intersection will pose a risk to not only motorists using this intersection and accessing the shops, but also to the many pedestrians using these two streets to access the village shops (primarily elderly, families and children)
2. While technically zoned for 'B1 Neighbourhood' use, this building won't be for community/neighbourhood use, it will be a residential building and used only by those residences. The proposed building is out of character for the suburb compared to other residential buildings (in its style, density and 3 storey appearance) and will not reflect the style (mostly 1-2 storey, single dwelling blocks) of the suburb.
3. A building such as this sets a precedence for high density, multi storey development in the suburb. While technically 'it doesn't feel right for the suburb' isn't a breach of a specific code it is probably what is at the heart of the matter for many residents. People choose to live in this suburb for the way it looks and feels - it's about the 'village' and the family atmosphere, the local shops, it's about community, and a high density apartment block is not concurrent with the look & feel of the suburb and will greatly change the landscape of our much loved suburb.
