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

Ruth Procter commented

As a past resident in Georgina Ave I was shocked to learn of the above development application.

Cosgrove Ave, being a cul de sac at the edge of the Illawarra Escarpment, is totally unsuitable for this project.
1. The land in question is steep. Reality and past history tell us that it could be prone to slippage, extreme drainage problems for the properties below as far as the Botanic Gardens.
2. The land is heavily wooded being on the escarpment so is truly in high fire prone zone.
3. In case of any emergency imagine the chaos and difficulties getting into the cul de sac with one entrance/exit. Fire fighters would have serious difficulties reaching the properties.
4. The structure of a large block of unattractive units stuck in the middle of the bush, is totally out of character with the area. A blot on the precious landscape.
5. The problem of parking and number of extra vehicles in an already saturated parking area due to the University, has been grossly overlooked in this whole inappropriate fiasco.
Yours very sincerely
Ruth Procter
