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

S. Ritson commented

Regarding the Redevelopment proposal of Thirroul Village (DA - 2020/363) and the installation of 82 new 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, this is concerning on many levels.
As previously noted, it does not appear to be consistent with the limits for buildings in the area. In addition, the traffic conditions that this volume of apartments and its new residents will bring would be extreme for the area. Already there is considerable traffic due to the single lane each direction through Thirroul without any other options. I am quite concerned that the essential services and infrastructure are already unable to cope with the current volumes and would be overwhelmed with the addition of further numbers.
The current situation with the closure of LHD at Bald Hill and more traffic from north Illawarra forced to travel through Thirroul, provides the perfect example of the challenges to traffic flow through the area. I am concerned about emergency services also being able to get through the area when they may be required during these busy times.
For the record, allowing just 19 days for community consultation for such a massive development with its significant impacts on the local community is quite insulting!
