In Stanwell Tops NSW on “Residential - dual...” at 12 Longview Crescent, Stanwell Tops NSW 2508:

PROVEN HIGH BUSHFIRE ZONE

To emphasise my Objection on this DA is the great concern on Bushfires.

Council must remember the chaos that surrounded the 2001 Christmas Day Bushfires that came close to obliterating Stanwell Tops and much of the surrounding district.

The chaos of traffic jams on the limited roads of the area.

That it took Scarborough Fire Brigade 4 hours to go from Bald Hill to Longview Crescent, battling the fire all the way. A relative of mine was one of the firemen.

Now the population has increased with more families living in residences of Stanwell Tops.

Such a disaster of another bushfire, which will inevitably happen, can never be dismissed or not taken seriously by Council.

Council were concerned over this very matter, when they rejected the Helensburgh Land Pooling.

The same can be applied to here because of allowing the dual occupancy of "cluster housing" which increases population in an isolated area.

Can Council afford that risk?
