In St Leonards NSW on “Rezoning Review of North...” at 601 Pacific Highway St Leonards:

David C commented

I'm not opposed to expansion and development as it goods for the city and much needed but it needs to be sustainable.

The amount of development of high rise appartments in St Leonards and the pacific highway corridor down to North Sydney is currently saturated and I have so far not seen any proposals on building out the infrastructure to support this.

Yes, Crows Nest station is being build out but the train system will not be able to cope with this expansion + the increased traffic flowing from the hills on these lines. On top of this I don't see any new schools being built, or re-developed, to support the increase in population in these areas.

I also feel that neither Lane Cove and North Sydney councils have shown enough consideration or due diligence in these expansion plans and therefore I feel that all future planning proposals for appartments of over 10 floors in these areas councils should go to the Sydney council for approval and to verify that this growth is sustainable for the infrastructure around it.
