In Thirroul NSW on “Residential - demolition of...” at 28 George Street, Thirroul NSW 2515:

I object to this DA on a number of grounds. Quite simply the developer appears to be trying to force as much into the lot as they can to the detriment of the suburb, neighbourhood, current residents and even the potential residents of this lot.

- 4 townhouses is too much for the site. The only way they can hope to achieve this is by going 3 story which is not right for the area or lot in question.

- The design is out of keeping with those around it. The rooflines in particular do not match and the orientation of the housing is not street facing unlike the rest of the street. The proposed height also appears to negatively impact the surrounding neighbours.

- The driveway access and ground level manipulation will create further pedestrian and traffic hazards with the site being opposite the heavily used shared pedestrian/vehicle single lane Kelton Lane. George st itself does not have adequate provision for pedestrians with no footpath on either side past Soudan street. This development will likely push pedestrians onto the road at a junction.

- The overall impact to traffic congestion must be considered when reviewing a plan to turn 1 abode into 4x multi- (3 or 4) bedroom ones. With the high volume of these types of submissions coming through it is simply untenable to continue to shirk responsibility for the cumulative impact.

Overall this development application appears purely focused on maximising the developers profit at the expense of everyone else and as such should be refused.
