In Epping NSW on “Tree Application - Removal...” at 29 Abuklea Road Epping NSW 2121:

M.McCartney commented

I object to the removal of these 2 trees just to build a fence. This is not a justified reason for the removal of these valuable assets for the community. Firstly Western Sydney is going to experience 40 degree heat today and tree removal adds another 10 degrees. So this will contribute to giving Epping 50 degree heat and this is not liveable and sustainable as per the Greater Sydney Commission District Plan requirements. Secondly Council should check a survey showing the boundaries of the site. There may be space to fit the fence and still keep the trees. Thirdly this street is leafy and close to Terrys Creek reserve so all trees are important for nearby wildlife and should not be removed. Fourthly are we going to see a DA application to extend this house and the trees need to be removed in preparation for this? In which case this should be considered as part of the DA and not a TA.
