In Keiraville NSW on “Residential - multi...” at 14 Cosgrove Avenue, Keiraville NSW 2500:

Glen Moore commented

As a life member of Destination Wollongong, I appreciate the iconic value of Mt. Keira and the escarpment below it. Mt. Keira has tremendous economic value to the City and should be protected from encroachment such as this.

Some years ago the land in question had substantial clearing, leaving bare soil. The scar was visible from across Wollongong and it was a relief when it greened again. We must protect this important piece of the escarpment.

I am also very concerned about having such a large number of residences only serviced by a single driveway since this is a fire zone. The streets through which these new residents would travel are totally inadequate for the increased traffic.

Flooding is a concern. My property, and that of my neighbors, was damaged in the floods of 1998. If there is increased stormwater flowing into the creeks adjoining the development there will be increased opportunity for a damaging repeat. It should also be remembered that this water eventually flows into Wollongong Botanic gardens where a diminished water quality is quite undesirable.
