In Bardwell Park NSW on “Construction of semi...” at 10 Lambert Road, Bardwell Park NSW 2207:

Geoff Towner commented

I strongly oppose to the developer's amended plans to the site at 10 Lambert Road, Bardwell Park. Most importantly I am concerned about the amount of trees that they are wanting to remove. The site backs onto the biodiversity corridor Lambert RD Reserve. Removing 11 out of 13 trees is completely unacceptable. These trees are mature and healthy and provide a great resource for the natural environment. Considering today's threat of Climate Change especially where the site backs onto the reserve shouldn't be allowed to remove any trees from the area. The trees are something that makes Bardwell Park so special. If they are removed the area would be exposed and hotter with less shade. The canopy is important not only for neighbour's privacy but also for the plantings in the reserve that the bushcare group have planted over the years. Also, in past developments of large buildings in the area where only 1 or 2 trees remain, over time these trees will eventually die anyway due to not having enough soil. It's a completely reckless practice of cutting down so many trees and only keeping a small amount which doesn't make up for anything. Also, I do not want them to go through the reserve with trucks during the development. The property should be left alone. The development is too risky. The amended plans don't change much. I hope Bayside Council listens to the public's concerns and demands.
