In Carlton NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 253 Princes Highway, Carlton, NSW Australia:

Suzanne Cullen commented

The developer claims there is a car park next door in the school grounds which gives adequate privacy to the school. This car park holds about 20 cars. This development is taking up a whole corner block which means at least 3 quarters of the building will overlook the school yard taking away any sunlight they would normally get. Also there will be no privacy for the children playing in a dark cold playground once the building has been erected. As for parking have they given any thought to the extra traffic. Most 1 bedroom units now don’t need parking facilities and most families are 2 car families or more these days so where is the parking coming from. The parking that is unavailable now for parents dropping off and picking up small children. Have these people no thought for these children. At the moment there is 2 commercial buildings on this block. How is it all of a sudden deemed residential?
To the council I put this to you. Have some thought and respect to our children. We need to protect them and their privacy.
Yes I do pay council rates and yes I do have grandchildren going to Carlton South Public School.
This is a school that is growing in leaps and bounds due to the fact of the highly populated areas in and around Carlton.
