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

James Wand commented

I wish to lodge my objection to the proposed construction of residential towers to be constructed at the Bull & Bush hotel site as well as the removal of the hotel, which was until recently, heritage listed. This construction of some 200 apartments will create havoc at the already overcrowded Seven Hills / Old Northern Rd / Windsor Road intersection. It must be noted that the Hills Council is against this development and therefore as they are an important voice for the community and its future, their opinion as well as those of the local residents must be accepted and adhered to without compromise. It must also be pointed out that there is no rail link at Baulkham Hills, only bus and motor vehicle transport, so one has to query the need for additional apartments which would create additional traffic congestion and people movement across this major intersection. I would also ask why is their a need to demolish the past heritage listed Bull & Bush hotel which has been a landmark in the area for many years. With a little refurbishment (it has not been looked after since Dyldam acquired the hotel around 2 years ago) it could again become a social hub for the local community. Surely the Sydney Central City Planning Panel, who are I understand reviewing this building application, need to consider the negative impact additional high rise apartments would have, not only at this location, but within the Baulkham Hills area.
