In Kiama NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 2 Surfleet Pl, Kiama, NSW 2533:

While I am not against having units/apartments on this lot, I would like to know why the number of dwellings in this submission have increased from 46 (in the original DA 10.2016.301.1) to now 62 units? What was councils findings of the to the original DA submission? I would like them to consider the impacts of cramming so many units into this lot because of the following:

1. There is only one driveway entry point in and out of these units right on the downslope bend of Surfleet Place just as you exit South Kiama Drive. Increased number of cars coming in and out of this driveway as well as cars coming up hill from other residence right on the bend may increase chances of an accident. Also South Kiama Drive is 80km/h at the entry of Surfleet. Can you consider changing the limit to 50km/h on South Kiama Drive until cars are well past the Surfleet intersection.

2. The plans do not include ANY visitor parking except for in the underground gated carpark. Surfleet Place is not wide enough to cater for street parking. Where will any visitors to these units park if they don't have access or don't use the underground carpark? Surfleet Place will be congested with cars. Why wasn't the little unused section of Marsden Street considered for parking or an extra entry point for these units?
