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

AJ Ko commented

I have visited Thirroul and the northern Illawarra from the UK each year for over 30 years and regularly keep up to date with local issues. I am keenly aware of the rapid change to the area, particularly in the last 5 years, noting the multiple sub-divisions and significantly increased traffic each time I visit. I am sure improvements to the commercial area are welcome and long overdue, however, the local infrastructure cannot support the scale of residential development proposed for the site. I am also concerned that the views of the escarpment may be obstructed with the new development and that national shopping chains will make the smaller and unique businesses in the village unviable. Please listen to residents’ concerns, and consider the environment and future generations. It would be a shame to ruin an area of stunning natural beauty and heritage and once lost can never be recovered.
