In Hornsby NSW on “Mixed - Shop Top Housing...” at 187 Peats Ferry Rd Hornsby NSW 2077 Australia:

Vandra Mellers commented

I thought we had put this issue to bed! This development is just not in character with this local area. The following are some of the issues concerning this development.

Traffic:- currently in peak hour, and other busy times traffic just crawls through this area. Add another few hundred dwellings with their accompanying cars and this area will turn into a polluted traffic jam.

Car parking:- is at exhaustive levels already on the east side. There just has to be a function on at council or the RSL club, and parking is at a premium.

Out of character:- the east side of Hornsby is lucky to still retain some of the old charm of yesterday. Fake facades with towering buildings will just not do justice to what remains of old Hornsby.

Overdevelopment:- I think Hornsby has more than paid for the State governments eye for development. The quiet suburb of Asquith is just full of towers. Our beautiful bushland shire is becoming another casualty of State government planning.
