In Macquarie Park NSW on “Approval is sought for a...” at 122 Herring Rd Macquarie Park NSW 2113:

Angela K commented

I strongly oppose the DA for the development of the Morling College site. As a local resident and home owner for over 20 years, I support good developments, but a high-density proposal like this is completely inconsiderate and inappropriate. It is unwanted!

As an owner of the beautiful 120 Herring I am distressed. The choice of this apartment was with the promise of an unobstructed view on the quiet side however 4 months after the settlement, all 11 south western boundary options at Site B of 3*multi-story residential are proposed to be positioned directly across of us. I am genuinely concerned about my family’s long-term health and well-being, lack of privacy, overshadowing & overlooking, inadequate sunlight, and the list goes on.

It’s also hugely DISAPPOINTING to see Morling College, a CHRISTIAN College going to the greedy direction over excessive property developments and profit maximisation, clearly at the expense of the local community!!!

The proposal cannot be considered in isolation...Herring Road is already enough congested as it is, parking at Macquarie Centre is horrendous, the entire area is overcrowded! If this development goes ahead plus all the other planned sites going up in the area, the road system and public transport will not sustain a further influx of residents, it would be a total disaster waiting to happen!!!

As many of the residents in the area are young families, the preservation of green space is crucial to quality of life. We don’t need over-development but a park or a public library, we need more open space to ensure road safety and to support emergency services access.

City of Ryde please listen to us, don’t let us down. Please please reconsider the application and make fair decisions for the community!
