In Athelstone SA on “To erect a split level...” at 345 Gorge Road Athelstone SA 5076:

Lucy Mulvany commented

There is no evidence that Athelstone needs a child care centre at all.

There are new child care centres popping up all over the place - one near the roundabout further down Gorge Road.

Plus the one on the correct side of the road nearer lower north east road.

Plus the new one at Moules Rd.

This proposal for ANOTHER childcare centre adjacent the reserve is madness. Does council really believe this could ever be a suitable location for small children?

It’s an undulating block that has a creek running through it. Beautiful but not safe for child care aged toddlers.

This area of road is very very narrow - and undulating - to the point that there are metal guard rails along the road - so it’s already a traffic hazard.

Will a developer really respect the green space in this area? Highly unlikely.

Ryan Road is totally residential - and far too narrow for overflow.

The centre is on the wrong side of the road.... everyone chucking u turns at pick up and drop off to get home.

Plus the quarry trucks thundering down the road.

Is the developer aware of all of these issues?!
