In Carlingford NSW on “Development Application -...” at 43 - 47 Murray Farm Road Carlingford NSW 2118:

Neil Donovan commented

Staff in the for-profit nursing homes run by Japara Healthcare have been ordered not to look in on residents overnight because making sure they are still breathing, or have not fallen out of bed, is "not a valid reason to check". (Newspaper Report 2018)

This is the type of company making this application.

More information is available on the public record. Am I right in thinking there is a Royal Commission currently into Aged Care in Australia currently?

The streets involved are narrow. The proposed development does NOT match the residential footprint that currently exists. It is therefore by definition "out of character" with it. The significant increase in traffic in and out of the facility is a concern. The roundabout at Oakes Rd and Murray Farm Road cannot cope with current traffic in peak hours. By the way peak hours have increased in the past 10 years in this locality. The non-peak by definition is now 10am until 2pm. While the flood threat to the development is rated 1 in a 100 years, the impact of such flooding in the event of evacuation of residents AND staff is no small undertaking.

I object to this development on the grounds listed above.
