In North Rocks NSW on “Complying Development...” at 328 North Rocks Road North Rocks NSW 2151:

Carea commented

Dear Parramatta City Council,

In response to the application to have another shop fitted as an optometry practice.

I am concerned that there is already an optometrist at North Rocks. A more useful service may be beneficial to the North Rocks community. Such services could include the RMS, an employment service, Medicare or a Disability community service. North Rocks has a high aging population and require services that are accessible through low economic means and facilities catered to their needs.

I am also concerned that North Rocks shops may have difficulty maintaining the leases of their spaces with such competition. Having competing optometrist will ultimately cause financial hardship to both practices. Recently one of the two optometrists closed down.

In addition, the establishment of a new optometrist is wasteful to the environment. There is already 2 shops fitted as optometrist in this case complex Would it be possible to use the existing space and minimise the environmental impacts and disturbance to the North Rocks community with ongoing developments?

Thank you for taking the time to consider my response.
