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

Fiona Langridge commented

I believe the current planning application is unsuitable for the site.
1. Height for any development application should be restricted to 2 floors in keeping with the area.
2. Traffic, access and parking are already overburdened in the area. Cars park both sides of the road in Murray Farm Road, Watton Road, and Sylvia Avenue Monday to Friday as well as on weekends, reducing access to one lane. Traffic regularly use Alkira Rd, Dryden Avenue, Tracey Avenue, Murray Farm Road, Watton Road and Carmen Drive to avoid the congested intersections of North Rocks Road with Oakes Road and North Rocks Road with Pennant Hills Road.
3. Drainage from any building must be carefully managed as runoff from properties in Murray Farm Road regularly streams through properties in Watton Road to the low point in Watton Road. Properties here have flooded in the past and further development with hard surfaces such as pathways, driveways and rooftops, places them at risk.
4. The loss of mature trees is an issue in any area and needs to be addressed. They provide wildlife habitat, soil stability and maintain the leafy nature of the area.
If the development goes ahead these issues need to be addressed.
