In Burrill Lake NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 1 Princess Av South, Burrill Lake, NSW:

Yvonne Perrin commented

I am absolutely devastated that people believe this development is a good idea. Having resided in Burrill Lake and Milton for over 30 years I have been witness to much development, some good some bad. This is one of the bad ones. Burrill Lake is still a beautiful environment ,with natural appeal to everyone. Including the wildlife. Ecologically this development would be a disaster. The tranquility of Burrill would be shattered. This is a unique estuary and is extremely fragile .The shifting sands home to so much marine and birdlife. The reason this building application has been submitted is pure and simple. Money. We all have to start taking responsibility for our future and preserve at least a few coastal towns to a minimum . It also seems the development will be built to the waterline? There should be a buffer of at least 7mt, or so I thought ,for foreshore developments? We really don't need Noosa style in Burrill Lake, keep it for the next generation, people will come just for the beauty. What of climate change and rising sea levels? I've noticed severe erosion on the bank of the dune to the south ,at least 5 meters has washed into the water in the last 3 years. Nothing further should be built on the waters edge.
