In Umina Beach NSW on “Residential Flat Building...” at 42 South Street, Umina Beach NSW 2257:

Lee Henderson commented

I am a frequent pedestrian of South St , long time resident of Umina Beach, and attest to too many cars currently blocking up this street as shoppers, visitors and residents all compete for the limited space. It is a hot street to walk as the vegetation has diminished and hard surfaces have increased and traffic has increased. cars are parked on both sides of the street day and night already so six households is too many for this size block in South St . While the building works proceed there will be less room to park and walk during this time also. It would be smart to prioritise an increase in vegetation in South St to partly mitigate the heat sink effect experienced currently in this area. Money spent on smart and beautiful vegetation features will be the best investment for the developer and improve the outcome for developer, owners, residents and the community. An investment which literally grows, being vegetation and habitat will outperform any infrastructure which is oversized for the size of the land. It will be highly welcomed and will only appreciate in value. Have a discussion and compare the likely outcomes. Cost vs benefit analysis anyone?
