In Padstow NSW on “Alterations and additions...” at 15-19 Enterprise Ave, Padstow:

Sarah Sleiman commented

I work in Enterprise Ave and already have serious parking problems if I arrive after 9am to find parking, the street is overflowing with cars from business and their employees already. Visitors have sometimes been forced to park at the lower end of the street to walk uphill for their appointments. I have seen many B-double semitrailer trucks who make delivery on the street and then need to do a very dangerous, multi-attempt U-turn at the top end/cul-de-sac in order to exit Enterprise Avenue. I have examples of this on video if needed. The existing DA for Youth Centre, including gym, and Prayer Centre at the site have already added to the parking overload in the street, and on special events at the site, the stream of cars travelling to the top end is endless. This cul-de-sac site is not suitable at all for any large number attendees for any type of applicant - be it from any other religion, or a large supermarket, or retail outlet. Even when the site was previously a manufacturing plant "Breviso", the traffic for the business was always contained to onsite parking just for their employees, visitors and delivery trucks. Their business did not impact the street parking. Council would be acting negligible IMO if they allow thousands of people to attend a site whereby Emergency Services could not easily access the site in the event of a full scale emergency. Without any other access/egress streets to the site, Enterprise Avenue is not capable of servicing such large traffic numbers. Other people's comments mention all these issues which are still relevant and continue to remain valid on this application.
