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

Michael Crighton commented

Today LHD was a traffic jam from The Headlands Hotel, through Austinmer to Bulli Pass. It was also jammed the other way. The effect was to lock Austinmer residents in, U turn to go back home, or if two people let you in a damn long crawl.

With lines on the side roads.

Traffic management people dismiss a probable 164 plus new residential cars as inconsequential. Suggesting traffic lights.

Limiting traffic, by limiting population, at present 80,000 new people in Sydney per year, and refusing a paradigm of insatiable compound growth is a form of heresy. Taboo and unthinkable.

The land owners have been given the right by Gladys and partners Govt zoning regulations to pass on the externalities, the unaccounted costs to others, the public. You and me.

No vote on it allowed.
No local democracy.

The profits will be private, the costs are socialised.

NSW Planning has no real plan but infinite growth. This is not planning but is a form of destruction.


We have all witnessed this over the last two decades here. Powerless to stop it.

As Sandon Point showed they, NSW ALP- LPA will even change the law for the owners, exempting them from it. Remember that?

Renovate it. Design something in keeping.
No units.
