In Alexandria NSW on “Stage 1 development...” at 163-173 McEvoy Street Alexandria NSW 2015:

Wendy Bacon commented

I am very concerned about any more developments long this strip of McEvoy St. It is clear that the living conditions for the people on Euston Rd will be dangerous from a pollution point of view. All of these dwellings will be More than 60,000 extra cars are going to come into the area in and out of the St Peters Interchange.

The impact of WestCONnex must be taken into account from a planning perspective, In my view there should be a halt to development in the area. Councillors and members of the community have argued that the WestCONnex fight is not over . Property developers will want open slather to develop devastated areas but the community should not be further exposed to unsafe poor developments.

I can also see the arguments of the residents of Alexandria who can see dense apartments narrowly spaced new urban higher rise developments overshadowing and changing the sense of scale in the area. As a long term resident of Erskineville side of Newtown I welcome new residents into the area but not at the cost of complete destruction of the wonderful urban fabric that existed there. Walking through Eskineville now, it feels like small oases of terraces have been left like islands, perhaps to be swept away at a later time.
