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

Anthea Stead commented

It’s become increasingly difficult & frustrating to get through thirroul at any time of the day. The shops need a facelift yes, but more units -no! Most people that move to or visit here come for the beauty, the coastal town feel. Not high density units & shopping. We’d be better to invest in our many artists & makers to add to this truly original area. It’s why the festival is so popular. Not high density living right in the centre of town! It would be impossible to get out of king st let alone progress along LH drive. And Beaches Hotel, which I noticed marked as ‘future development’ (they might want to ask the owners first) along with Anita’s theatre are part of the fabric & history of this town - units alongside these venues? Would we lose live music & shows too?
Essential services such as schools & doctors surgeries are all under pressure with recent surge in population. This development has been poorly thought out in terms of the area, what the community need & want & the limitations of the area.
