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

Correct Wendy but the comment about green is plain wrong. The dream of the 1/4 acre block is over. St Leonard’s is prime for development as it is really one of the perfect places to live. Parks, public transport(+ future metro), the road network, proximity to the city and the list goes on. If we can’t to try and reign in house prices and maintain a quality of life for all, then we need apartments. It is simply irresponsible and not fair to force everyone to move out to Oran Park. Nobody likes change, especially when it effects them (I.e inner west councils complaints about westconex, everyone uses the m4 and parra road so let them make it better and easier for all of Sydney).
Local councils can do a lot better with better planning and bringing up the standard of schools and other necessities prior to densification.
Although councils are under staffed and should always look at the bigger picture/the grand plan/a Sydney +20 years from now, and not submit to those who complain about high rise development and cutting down a tree in someone’s backyard.
Provide constructive feedback and council will listen (hopefully).
