In Thirroul NSW on “Commercial - demolition of...” at 282-298 Lawrence Hargrave Drive, Thirroul NSW 2515:

Lisa McDonell commented

The reason people love Thirroul both to live in and to visit is because of its sleepy seaside village feel. High density living would greatly impact that atmosphere. I have lived in the Northern Suburbs for 20 years and have seen Thirroul slowly become busier and busier. Over the last nine years I have lived in Woonona travelling through Thirroul to take children to school and to go to work. When I moved to Woonona I timed my commute to Thirroul. It was six minutes on average. Over the last nine years due to increased development the commute has changed to seventeen minutes on average with some weekends taking almost half an hour! Apart from the obvious inappropriateness of a high density apartment complex within Thirroul village, the amount of cars this would add to already existing traffic congestion would cause a great deal of inconvenience and in certain circumstances danger to locals and visitors. An upgrade to the plaza without the housing would be welcomed by many.
