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

Jennifer Martel commented

Infrastructure has not kept up with property development in the Northern Illawarra for years whilst developers have been busy subdividing and adding multi-dwelling apartments on once single dwelling sites.

Without upgrades to roads, public transport, footpaths and schools in the area there should be no allowance for massive apartment blocks like this.

Building for more cars in an area already hamstrung without alternate routes is a disaster in the making if we were to have an emergency like a bushfire.

The future of apartment buildings should also not be designed to be so reliant on the car.
