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

My objections in regards to DA2020/363 on Lawrence Hargrave Drive (Thirroul Shopping Complex).

I am not opposed to the refurbishment of the Thirroul Shopping Plazza.

I am however opposed to the building of the proposed 82 apartments, as this type of aggressive over development does not fit in with the calm nature of the beach-side suburb of Thirroul. It simple does not fit in with the local landscape.

Developments of this nature should not be allowed to happen in this location, at least until Wollongong City Council, the RTA and the NSW Government provide us with proper roads and other basic infrastructure that could accommodate such developments.

We are already suffering from transport fatigue in the northern suburbs of Wollongong. One only needs to observe the heavy traffic on weekends to understand that we have already reached a point of saturation.

Something that should not be overlooked is the the fact that such an increase in the local population requires the provision of services like transport, more trains, parks, community spaces and institutions. We just can not accept such level of development when these basic services are not yet provided.
