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

Barbara DeGraff commented

I object to this Planning Proposal because it does nothing to increase employment. Rather it provides less space for jobs as the commercial component is less than the current 14 stories - by a significant margin.

Further development of residential towers must halt until we understand the impact of the numerous high rise units already under construction. Once these units come online will there a market for such apartments? Will the existing water and sewerage system handle it? Will the narrow streets handle further traffic? Will the necessary supporting infrastructure be in place?

Increasing the height at this site is unnecessary and would negatively impact liveability further overpowering and overshadowing Crows Nest, Naremburn and Wollstonecraft as well as surrounding communities and suburbs up and down the highway.

I object to the proposed bulk and scale of the towers as they are do not provide an appropriate transition to the fine grain of Crows Nest streets and will set a dangerous ‘precedent’.
