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

Travis N commented

Dear Sir/Madam,

I strongly object to the recent DA submitted by Morling College for 122 Herring Road, Macquarie Park.
As a new home owner at 120 Herring Rd (settled in August), I am deeply concerned that the 5 14-storey residential buildings coupled in with commercial and retail space will:

1. Place further strain on limited infrastructure along Herring, Epping and Waterloo Rd.

• Worsens the road and pavement over-congestion issue by introducing more cars and foot traffic to the area. The current pedestrian walkway from the building to Macquarie Uni Metro station is already very narrow as it stands.

2. Result in a loss of privacy

• The close proximity of residential buildings will compel residents to put their blinds down even more

3. Reduction of sunlight

• The towers will overshadow low-level units and dwellings in the area

4. Introduce more construction noise and dust

• Given the number of active developments in the area (e.g. Neue Macquarie Park), the approval of this DA will worsen the situation

Overall, the above-mentioned points will have a significant and detrimental impact on the quality of living for residents in the area.

I sincerely hope that the City of Ryde factors all comments and objections on the DA to come up with a plan that contributes to the long-term well-being of the community and its residents.

Thank you,

delivered to the planning authority
