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

Dear sir or madam,

I urge for council to please consider reject or revise the proposed plan by Morling College. The current buildings on Saunders close and Herring road already have very high density.

Most importantly, as an owner of Saunders close, we do not want to be in the headline news like Mascot tower. The proposed 14 stories mixed use/ retail building in site A is too close to 6 and 4 Saunders close and will put the foundation of existing building in danger. Will council be responsible for the multi-million dollar bills if Mascot tower reappear here in Macquarie Central?

Secondly, I can understand Morling college would like to build 4-5 stories mixed used buildings like dining hall, café and child care to service its staff and students. But the 14 stories retail units above is too greedy and not benefit the community at all. It will not only blocks sunlight for the existing buildings and also will cause serious traffic jams and danger for the kids.

Please reconsider potential damage of the plan rather than only focus on near term $$.

Many thanks
