In Gateshead NSW on ‚ÄúTelecommunication Facility‚ÄĚ at 120 Bulls Garden Road, Gateshead NSW 2290:

Kerry Anne Rounsley and Paul Gregory Rounsley commented

We strongly object to the proposed Optus tower in Bullsgarden Road.

We have lived close to where the proposed tower will be in Justine Avenue, Whitebridge for 13 years and have never had a problem with phone reception.

The tower will be close to a residential area, places where many people work, where people visit businesses, attend school and carry out leisure activities. These include four gymnasiums, a sports stadium, play centre and a ballet school.

We walk past this site several times a week when we attend the gym in Oakdale Road and when exercising our dog. We are concerned about the future negative health implications for people especially the young children living close by.

The proposed tower will be a visual eyesore since it is immediately adjacent to Bullsgarden Road. It will be more than double the height the LMCC allows. It does not follow the SEPP (Infrastructure) 2007 rules regarding the height of towers in Industrial land when located near residential areas.

The tower must be built away from this area where people work, live and play.
