In Woonona NSW on “Commercial - demolition of...” at 74 Russell Street, Woonona NSW 2517:

Michelle Newbold commented

I am writing to express my objection to this development at the proposed location.

Russell Street is already struggling with traffic and parking issues. There is a large amount of properties that accommodate townhouses and units, bringing more vehicles than parking facilities.

Due to the high volume of vehicles needing to park on the side of the road as result of the lack of parking available at many of the strata type properties, both sides of the road are congested with parked vehicles. This in itself currently causes many near misses with drivers having to manouvre the parked cars and oncoming traffic.

This issue is heightened when occupants are placing bins for collection and causes vehicle owners to move the bins off the road to the reserve strip.

I believe a business such as this with small children and families is not appropriate for this location, and is high risk for injury. This is without consideration to employee parking!
Approval of this development will only make an already dangerous and congested living area worse!!!
