Objection to Application LDA 2019/9264, 122 Herring Road, Macquarie Park NSW 2113 – Morling College Application

We are one of the owners in 120 Herring Road Macquark Park. We just moved in this new building a few months ago. Compare with the living environment in 29 years ago. We feel it is more worst now. The major reasons for this objection:

· Traffic:

Before to approve this application, may I ask:

Heavy traffic jam as usual now on Herring Road, Epping Road and Waterloo Road, plus,

1) Opposite Herring Road: New government project –“ Ivanhoe Project “ has approved to build approx 2,000 new apartments within next five years. Hundreds and thousands of car spaces will park in these buildings.
2) There is only one roundabout for both sides of residential cars in and out.

So, traffic safety issue need to review.

· Trees and landscaping:

1) The size of landscaping decreased in the past ten years in the area? For example, more than 15 trees have been cut off and only two left in the middle of Herring Road. Number of new buildings up, number is size of green land is going down.

2) The above application: to build seven buildings, size of green land in here absolute is going to reduce.

· Loss of view over another private land:

This application for Seven buildings with 14- storey high. We believe 14-storey are too high to block both sides of the existing building views and also it will be very close to our building.

· Many other issues need to be considered, such as ten of dozens of old buildings will be rebuilt in this area. It has been approved by council in ten years ago. This means it will increase over 20,000 to 30,000 new residents will living in Macquarie Park. Public facilities are nearly overload.
