In Padstow NSW on “Proposed use of existing...” at 22 Howard Road Padstow NSW 2211:

I myself further support what Chloe has said, Padstow is in need of a local creative centre where young people, individuals and families can access and feel proud about where they live. Why not capitalise on it's space and create a thriving place where community groups such as parenting groups, after school groups, young people, cultural groups and the elderly can come to connect with each other and explore their creative interests. Being the Padstow Star cinema building in the 1950s why not pay homage to this and create a local hub thriving with culture in an era which is certainly due to boom in the next few years. The suggestion of having something similar to Hazelhurst Gallery in Gymea is a fantastic one. Why should places such as The Shire or Inner West (as much as I love those two areas for their natural beauty and thriving music, art, cafe and nightlife respectively) have all the good stuff and South West Syd be jammed between the two barely anything? Look at how well 'POD by Peter' has gone since opening up their cafe and bringing something new and exciting to the area. Let's do something fresh and exciting, not recreate the wheel with yet another fitness centre in an area which is clearly ready to open it's arm to something different.
