In Sawtell NSW on “Subdivision-Non Strata - 57...” at Sawtel Road Tormina NSW 2452:

Andrew Row & Peta Hines commented

We have already watched the destruction of acres of trees & natural habitat, for the sake of the new highway, up & down the coast, with more destruction in the wings to achieve the bypass. At a time when we should be protecting habitat for all native species, including our endangered Koalas, it seems just plain wrong to be wiping out valuable pockets of natural bush in our urban areas as well. We are so lucky to have these natural green spaces in our local area as they are part of what makes Coffs Harbour such a unique, attractive & remarkable place. Surely we could work within the existing footprint & any cleared land available to meet our future needs.
We have a property on Sawtell Rd that will be directly affected by this development proposal. Our property with its close proximity to Linden Road roundabout will certainly be adversely impacted by the increased traffic, noise & air pollution, which is already high.
We agree with the other resident's comments above, & although it is zoned R2, would personally rather not see the development go ahead. Notwithstanding the plan does not give enough space for a wildlife corridor, as it puts wildlife between a rock & a hard place, the industrial area on one side & domestic animals & cars on the other.
