In West Gosford NSW on “INTEGRATED Stage 1 - Hungry...” at 269 Brisbane Water Drive, West Gosford NSW 2250:

To whom it may concern,

I am concerned that the proposed addition of a fast food restaurant, gym and childcare while all needed may overwhelm the capacity for parking in the immediate area. The existing carpark at the site is fine outside of peak hours and weekends however it does experience severe congestion and traffic choke points due to the current layout and volume of visitors. Over the past two years the traffic during these times has seriously degraded due to all the additional units and townhouses in the area that visit the centre for their supermarket needs. Please consider the stages of development carefully so that the additions work in harmony and do not make an already stressful experience during peak hours & weekends a dangerous one involving collisions between vehicles, vehicles and pedestrians due to an insufficient number of parking spaces.

You would be hard pressed to find a resident that isn't relieved that something is finally being done to the site however careful planning and implementation will be required to achieve the best possible outcome for both the businesses and community with the carpark layout & capacity being the major contentious issue.
