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

John & Angela Penhallow commented

Shops redevelopment YES - but 82 residential apartments a big NO!

This proposed overdevelopment in Thirroul would cause our beautiful village atmosphere to be destroyed. Traffic congestion is also a major concern. Parking at the schools, the Medical Centres and IGA will not cope with the potential increase of people and cars. Residential homes this close to Beaches Hotel and the beautifully restored Anita's Theatre will be detrimental for these venues. We fear that residents will complain about noise, even though they knew that the venues are there before moving in. There is already an example where this has happened. If this development with any residential content was to go ahead then the new residents should be made to sign a caveat that they will not complain about living next door to the Pub and Theatre.

The council still has to look into another road in and out for McCauley's Beach Estate and Sandon Point estate as per the original plans for both of those estates in the planning stage.

PLEASE WCC think fully about our infrastructure before rubber-stamping this proposal - act in the interest of the existing residents not the developer!
