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

Peter Scrine commented

It is hard to argue against the development when using the economic assessment study provided as your basis as to why... what does not seem to be included in any of the provided assessments is the qualitative impact to the region and our community.

The Plaza is well overdue for redevelopment and the proposed redevelopment looks very sympathetic to the heights and architectural surroundings.

We are all very concerned about the additional 564 AM peak hour, the 555 PM peak hour and 734 weekend vehicle movements given the already chaotic traffic congestion that occurs during ALL these times between Austinmer and Bulli. Proposing one additional set of traffic lights, positioned at the intersection of LHD & King streets ,will not alleviate any of this congestion. In fact I suggest it will adversely contribute to longer delays, longer traffic queues increasing the resentment towards this development.

What meaningful solutions does council propose to stop turning the northern beaches into one continuous carpark? Because without better traffic management solutions this development only offers a negative impact.
