Objection to Application LDA2019/0264 122 Herring Road, Macquarie
Park Morling College Application
Reference: Application LDA 2019/0264 by Morling College

As an owners of 120 Herring Road Macquarie Park, I object to the
application LDA 2019/0264 122 Herring Road launched by Morling College.

Macquarie Park is already over-crowded with too many high rise apartments on Herring Road, Epping Road, Waterloo Road, Talavera Road. These roads leading to all old and new developments and to Macquarie Central Shopping Centre is causing congestion.

As of today, we already have 10 major developments under construction around the same area in Macquarie Park, it is hard to imagine any more new developments of High Rise Buildings.

These upcoming developments under construction are already an issue as they are adding to our congestion in our suburb.

City of Ryde Council needs to help us maintain; add more parks and keep all the greenery remaining on Herring Road; around Morling College and it’s surroundings.

We also need your help to address the traffic congestion to Macquarie Central Shopping Centre and surrounding roads. There needs to be new ways to redirect or widen the roads to ease congestion

Providing amenities including more schools, clinics, greenery parks, childcare, clinics, playground to the neighborhood of Herring Road. This proposal is adding to woes of living in our popular street of Herring Road.
Below are our summary of the main points of objection.

1. Close Proximity with the Proposed Morling College Layout – Currently with Mascot Building issues which have a high probability cause was due to the construction of the nearby Buildings. We have huge concerns that Site B is only 12 m away from us. It is too close to our Building. These 3 building construction in Site B are too close for our comfort; and when during construction, they might affect our Building. Not to mention the construction dust directly blowing into our homes.

2. Town Cramming and Overcrowding in Macquarie Park and in particular Herring Road – This reduces our quality of life.

3. Congestion in an already overcrowded road in Herring Road, Waterloo Road and Epping Road and the surroundings.

4. The proposed buildings will cast shadows and loss of sunlight to our apartment block. Site B of 14 Storeys is too tall and too close to 120 Herring Rd. We would want these buildings further away from our block and the new proposed development shouldn’t be taller than 8 storeys.

5. Sharp Wind Sounds – caused by strong winds, already creating howling sounds through the buildings. With this new proposed building, more wind tunnels will form creating more howling sounds through the buildings.

6. Loss of Privacy and overlooking into our 120 Herring Road apartments.
Site B is facing the north west section of our apartment block. It will be too close and will affect our privacy.

7. Depression of the area and 120 Herring Road due to overcrowding, loss of sunlight, lack of privacy and overdevelopment in the Macquarie Park area.

8. Increase Traffic in the future, especially at the roundabout of 120 Herring Road. It is already an issue exiting out of the block. With these new proposed 500+ apartments it will cause more traffic issues in the tiny roundabout. The planned road is not going to solve the problems with mix/retail, childcare and residents, especially during peak hours. We have huge concerns over this planning.

9. Loss of Greenery and Trees

10. Loss of View from the residents in 120 Herring Road facing the Macquarie Shopping Centre and greenery in the North West

11. Extreme Dense and closeness in apartments in Macquarie Park that make Macquarie Park loses its original flavour of a greenery park with homes and colleges.

12. Construction Noise and Dust from this proposed construction.
We would request City of Ryde to re-consider the application and increase the distance on both sites from our apartment block. Is it also possible to reduce the height of those buildings down to 8 stories.

Please take in consideration my concerns. Thank you
