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

ANDREW GRAY commented

Whilst I have no objection to the much needed upgrade of the Plaza facades and general areas, I have a strong objection to the associated residential development. The traffic and parking issues here are already ridiculous at times. I would challenge anyone to find a park within easy walking distance of the Plaza area on weekends or when Anitas has an event, so please consider how difficult this is already for the elderly or those with challenges. This will simple be exaggerated if this development is approved as not only the residents but associated visitors and ancillary vehicles congest the area further. The proposed development is simply out of character for the Village and will create a clash between the heavily patronaged live music venues at Beaches and Anitas, inviting tensions between any future residents and others, whose current entertainment amenity will be under threat. This residential development is clearly potentially culturally dissonant, unpopular, disruptive and divisive for the community. It will forever change the character of Thirroul Village in a negative manner.Thank you.
