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

Kevin Grimmer commented

To echo 90% of the previous submissions, an upgrade to the shops and frontage would be welcomed but 82 units is a ridiculous idea. Traffic gridlock is already a major issue in Thirroul, already exacerbated by the Macauleys Beach development. Another 500++ daily vehicle trips will simply add to that with the junction next to Beaches Hotel needing yet another set of traffic lights to cope!
Secondly, there is a danger that the presence of these units (no doubt accompanied by high-rent retail spaces attracting major corporates) will detract from the village atmosphere within Thirroul. The units will almost undoubtedly be bought by ex-Sydneysiders looking for a "better quality of life" while reducing the appeal of Thirroul by turning it into what they're attempting to escape!
And the concern regarding local music venues is also quite valid. These are facilities are currently enjoyed by many people from the local area and it would be a shame to see their activities curtailed.
