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

It's very sad to hear that WCC and developers would consider 82 units in an area where traffic congestion is already a huge issue.
On weekends, it can take up to 3/4 of an hour to get from Coledale to Thirroul.
82 units will not help the local economy. Loss of revenue for local business is already apparent, as there is minimal parking and major traffic congestion making it easier to bypass Thirroul.
We also have 2 of the best live music venues in the Illawarra which bring in not just locals but overnighters to the area which has to be great for local economy, so what a shame it would be if new unit buyers decided to whinge about the noise causing close downs or restrictions to these venues. Unfortunately, this seems to be a common theme in the Northern suburbs.
Yes, refurbish the plaza, it should have been done decades ago. But don't put 82 units there.
