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

Lisa T commented

This development would adversely change the character of Thirroul as a small seaside town forever, increase the current traffic congestion and increase the strain on essential service infrastructure that is already overburdened.
Thirroul does not need 82 new apartments, or even a quarter of that number on top of a commercial redevelopment that is a redevelopment in the face of a downturn in stores as a future viable retail business model. Thirroul already has another supermarket, there is a Woolworths in the next town and the town is currently not lost for choice for cafes and restaurants, in fact some buildings are vacant and waiting to be leased.
The development in its current state does not reflect the needs of residents who already live in the area, weekend tourists who visit or the protection of the future vision of the character of the town as a small seaside village. It does however highlight the problems Thirroul and the Northern Suburbs already have due to over development, infrastructure and traffic strain.
