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

Steven Gilbert commented

Ignorant comments like Carea’s are the reason why small businesses struggle.
Firstly, a complying development certificate means that this development has already been conditionally approved by a private accredited certifier.
Secondly, the North Rocks Shopping Centre is a privately owned centre. This means that they can freely choose what businesses they would like in their centre. If they want to have 20 optometrists they can.
And thirdly, the optometrist is also privately owned. Meaning if they want to take out a lease at the North Rocks shopping centre and compete with the existing optometrist then they can.
So instead of providing useless complaints to council maybe you should try providing support to a small business which is most likely owned by someone trying to make a living for themselves so they can pay their mortgage and feed their family.
