In Baulkham Hills NSW on “Bull and Bush Hotel Site...” at 360 Windsor Road, Baulkham Hills:

Chris Pierce commented

I object to this proposal of a new residential building to be built at that site ( Bull n Bush) for 2 main reasons.
Traffic at the intersection of Windsor Road, Old Northern Road and Seven Hills road is way overloaded and has become a bottle neck. During peak times it can be backed up down Seven Hills road almost to Jasper Road, this creates issues for parents and busses trying to drop of kids to the Public school.
Windsor road can be backed up way back to Merindah Road, again this creates issues at Baulkham Hills School, not to mention traffic backing up in the side streets, this will already become worse with new developments currently being built throughout Kellyville and Bella Vista.
Old Northern Road can get backed up to Castle Hill, and there are huge developments underway there as well. Traffic is already a major issue at that intersection, and is well undersized in every direction.
Secondly, the Bull n Bush itself is part of The Hills past, even though it’s not thought to be Heritage listed, it’s a significant part of the history of the area. There have been a few Hotels and Inns at this site over the past 100 or so years and there would be significant structures , footings and artifactes all over the site.
We continually dismiss the the revelance of our history in the need to develop and grow. Most other countries embrace their history and preserve it for future generations, but we seem to put developments first, its all about the money these days, and not for the better of the region.
