In Berkeley NSW on “Subdivision - Torrens title...” at 30 Imperial Drive, Berkeley NSW 2506:

Marsha and John McKay commented

This is not an objection, but an issue of concern.

This issue only applies to 18 Imperial Dr Berkeley.

Concern -garbage bins
The residents that live on the private road behind us place their bins along outside our house, for garbage collection on Wednesday mornings.

Over the past years, with further dwelling developments with house numbers 26,26A and 22 and 22A, the bin numbers have increased by eight bins. Now with two dwellings built on No 30 that means an addition of four more bins. Altogether that will be eighteen bins outside our house. Thus the bins are now moving to a position in line with our front door. With this comes odour especially in summer with smells like prawns etc as they sit in the sun. The bins lie there all day until people return from work. I feel this is a health issue. the smell sometimes floats into our backyard.

Also litter often comes and blows onto our front lawn from pieces when bins are emptied.

The other issue is we have on street parking. One car is on our driveway the other one to two cars park outside our house. This means we will be restricted further as there needs to be room for the council garbage truck to access all bins. We have the right to park our cars comfortably outside our house on any given day. I can't see why bin placement can't be relocated to the reserve across the road. As this is where the private road residents get their council cleanup garbage collected.

If bin placement was to be relocated, residents would have to be notified.
