Sin Woon commented

I object to this development.

LESS FSR TRANSFER FROM 120 HERRING ROAD.
On 22.0 DEVELOPMENT STATISTICS plan, Building 120 Herring Road has "LESS FSR TRANSFER 8,017 sqm." Printed on the plan. Does it mean building 120 Herring Road has "borrowed" 8,017 sqm from 122 Herring Road development. If this is correct then 8,017 sqm has to be deducted from the Adjusted GFA of 60,633 sqm. After deduction the remaining GFA area becomes 52,616 sqm. This will mean only 4 blocks can be built in this development.

GREEN SPACE.
This development belongs to religious organization and not profit minded property developers. To welcome community to this college more green space and activity centre are required.

CLU DE SAC or DEAD END ROAD.
The existing Saunders Close and new road are both dead end roads which are notorious for creating traffic jam. If the only exit/access is blocked either by traffic accident or fire engine fighting a fire then no cars can enter or leave the development. Propose these two roads should be linked and with connection to Bluegum Road at Macquarie University.

ROADS TO BE WIDER
Existing Saunders Close road and new road are not wide enough to take care of smooth traffic after the development is completed with addition of 500 odd cars. Wider roads are required.

TRAFFIC JAM AT JUNCTIONS OF NEW ROADS AND HERRING ROAD
With so many cars going to Herring Road in the morning, there will be hugh traffic jam. Cars may have problem getting out of car park of each building.

EXISTING SERVICES MAY NOT COPE
Existing water main, fire fighting hydrants, power lines, NBN, sewer lines and gas mains may not cope and should be updated

COMBUSTABLE ALUMINIUM PANELS ETC
No illegal combustable aluminium or other panels should be approved for use for this development.

STRICT ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION CONTROL DURING CONSTRUCTION
Strict dust, noise, traffic, vibration, muddy water overrun, dangerous chemical escaping, to be monited by government agencies at regular intervals.

DELIPIDATION REPORTS AND SETTLEMENT MONITORING TO ALL SURROUNDING BUILDINGS DURING CONSTRUCTION
Detail Delipidation Reports for all surrounding buildings to be prepared by independent professional firm. All surrounding buildings to be monitored for settlement and monthly reports to be submitted. All these activity to be paid by owner of this development.
