In Gladesville NSW on “Proposed Amending...” at 8 Western Cr Gladesville NSW 2111:

T Craven commented

(a) In the interests of true transparency perhaps Council should put all documents on the website as is nothing there. It appears that RSL and Urbis are behind this development (in which case I will not be donating any more to the RSL which I have done since my great uncle was an official in the RSL many years ago). (b) it is a shame if they are knocking down the charming facade which is full of character - Could Council please look at whether the facade is worthy of heritage listing. (c) I agree with all the other comments. 20 years ago Gladesville was once a suburb like its name - a pleasant village surrounded by trees. Now there are far too many developments for the area. Victoria Rd cannot accommodate the traffic. This particularly development is behind Victoria Rd where there are already very narrow streets and insufficient access. There is insufficient facilities, inadequate public transport. Agree with youth facilities but this development seems to be primarily about high density apartments. Perhaps Gladesville should be renamed - Highriseville or Concreteville comes to mind.
