    Art O’Brien commented

    An Irish pub masquerading as a “family friendly” cafe? I’m surprised this place hasn’t actually been shut down yet, let alone getting a licence extension. Council, time to have a good hard look at whatever is going on in this bizarre and inappropriate venue.

  2. In Braddon ACT on “LEASE VARIATION - Variation...” at 220 Northbourne Avenue, Braddon, ACT:

    M Hamilton commented

    It is good to see more supportive housing potentially being made available in a convenient location but I hope it doesn’t turn into a concentration of people with social and drug problems like the large concentrations of public housing that formerly lined Northbourne Ave prior to being demolished. It would be helpful if separate to the DA the ACT Government provided more information about ‘supportive housing’. Is it like community housing or is it standard public housing? The amount of theft in the inner north from houses has reduced since the demolition of the highly concentrated public housing flats. There are almost permanent beggars at Dickson shops and other smaller inner north shopping centres, so I hope that with this important initiative to provide essential housing to people in need that a concomitant set of support services will be provided as concentrating people in large public housing developments can create problems, including safety of residents of such developments.

    Benjamin Farr commented

    I absolutely oppose this DA due to historical, cultural and heritage reasons. This historic home provides character and beauty to our neighbourhood and is an excellent representation of colonial/Victorian architecture. This building should/must be preserved and restored.

    I live in Leichhardt and am so disappointed in seeing so much of the heritage of the area being demolished for modern constructions. Tindil is an unique building worthy of retaining either in its entirety or partially as the façade of a more modern structure. Please don't destroy all the lovely buildings in the inner west in the name of progress.

  5. In Meadowbank NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 1 Railway Rd Meadowbank NSW 2114:

    Sophie B commented

    I strongly object to this proposed development. Meadowbank is already hugely over developed with a lack of amenities for the local community. It is becoming more and more congested on the roads and public transport.

    There has been an influx in empty properties in the area, there is no need for additional development. The lack of information on the boarding house is a concern in regards to this planning application.

    Murty Chappidi commented

    I think it’s great initiative
    This area is growing fast and many young families are settling in and around. It’ll tremendously help parents.

  7. In Erina NSW on “24 Self Care Apartments...” at 95 Karalta Road, Erina NSW 2250:

    V Harrison commented

    I agree with the previous comments, this area has too many units already, particularly considering there's meant to be another 131 units built, four stories high, almost right next door. Not to mention karalta rd can not handle the amount of vehicle traffic this amount of units would potentially create.

    Ian McKay commented

    I wish to know details of this plan having purchased 31 approx. 12mths ago.
    I fear any development of more than single storey will severely impact my lifestyle and privacy along with greatly devalue my high cost home.
    The rear yard In particular will be potentially grossly effected as I also plan to have a pool and outdoor living area constructed which will require even more privacy for obvious reasons.
    I have formal proposals for these works in hand.
    How do I gain more detail?
    I asked re this possibility of a development some months ago yet have received a reply only today.
    I dont wish to cause any angst for anyone concerned yet feel details need to be assessed with maximum empathy which is only fair and reasonable.

    kiran reddy commented

    indeed, it's an extraordinary thought to have a childcare community on these grounds.childcare with great quality is required in Glenwood as there are a couple of spots for all the kids and their families. On the off chance that the structure can be utilized without disturbing the veneer and staying with the legacy look that is required while changing just an insignificant piece of the structure then why not
    Childcare fixates need stopping on grounds so the road stopping won't be influence as everybody doesn't go into and out of a middle at school times..

    I'm all in for excellent childcare and learning focuses as the current ones either don't have sufficient seat, and the children are being put on long sitting tight records for making sure about required days.

    Uday Kiran commented

    yes, it’s a great idea to have a childcare centre on these grounds.childcare with good quality is needed in Glenwood as there are only a few spots for all the children and their families. If the building can be used without disrupting the facade and remaining with the heritage look that is required when changing only a minimal part of the building then why not!!!

    Childcare centres need parking on grounds so the street parking will not be affect as everyone does not go into and out of a centre at school times

  11. In Petersham NSW on “Other Das” at 122 Crystal Street Petersham NSW 2049:

    Frank Gomez commented

    This is just wrong and shows council is more interested in developer fees and future rates than maintaining heritage or the growing traffic gridlock in that area of the inner west which will only get worse.

  12. In Bentleigh East VIC on “Demolition of all existing...” at 730B Centre Road Bentleigh East VIC 3165:

    Laura commented

    What parking arrangements will be included 1) for the eventual occupants, and 2) for the construction/trades during the building process? Over the last 2 years, St Georges Ave, Hill St, Larman St and Gardners have been inundated with vehicles related to the construction of the East Boundary/Center Rd apartment complex. Access to our properties, safe entry to/from the street and parking have all been compromised. Furthermore this is a major intersection, and is incredibly congested during peak hours. What assurance is being provided that safety of residents and road users will be prioritised?

    Jan Pittard commented

    We were residents of Petersham for many years and loved its diverse historic architecture. Developments like The Majestic show that the area's character can be preserved and enriched . 'Tindil' could be sympathetically re-purposed with some accommodation, a cafe, offices, retail - all sorts of possible uses. Reward a developer who shows imagination and some empathy with the area's heriatge, don't endorse another set of high rise boxes.

    Abhishek commented

    I think its great if we can get a new childcare facility in this area as its so hard to manage work and children and the centres dont have space for new enrolments. We definitely need a new childcare facility!

    John zissis commented

    Boundary fence between 13-15 Burke st concord west is missing and Very dangerous at the moment.
    The developer removed the fence without notice on the 20th of October 2020.
    An engineers report to be issued before a new fence is errected.

    Manu commented

    When anyone says 'It's heritage listed' people usually back off, thinking there would be too many regulations and criterias to be met.

    What better place than this to instill culture and values in kids than a hertigate listed center for the previous n next generation to merge and pave a new path.

    Australia has good council bodies with highest standards who govern and make decisions. I'm sure they will find solutions for both safety of children and workers.

    If someone is trying to maintain it by setting up a childcare that will preserve existing and extend it by laying stronger foundations for kids safety kudos to them.

    I'm all in for high quality childcare & learning centres as the existing ones either don't have adequate seat, and the kids are being placed on long waiting lists for securing required days.

    Hemanth Sharma commented

    Quality Childcare is definitely needed in Glenwood. A public facility dedicated to the presentation of the childcare is really going to be a good development. This will help many young families. I don't think traffic can be a hindrance. In my opinion, this should happen as soon as possible.

  18. In Glenwood NSW on “Use of a Heritage dwelling...” at 174 Glenwood Park Drive Glenwood NSW 2768:

    Pavani commented

    Traffic and congestion aren’t the main issues as the children won’t come out during their school time and many families around would be beneficial by this move to turn a beautiful heritage site into a very beautiful child care

    Thereby I support to establish a child care in that area as it would turn into a win-win scenario anyway

  19. In Glenwood NSW on “Use of a Heritage dwelling...” at 174 Glenwood Park Drive Glenwood NSW 2768:

    Balaji Allam commented

    With adequate care and assurance to not infringe on the property's heritage so that its importance is preserved, letting a new childcare open in this area could be a win-win scenario. Urbanization is vital to the society and with it come the necessities like schools and childcare centers. Although, increasing traffic is certainly a nuisance, these new businesses will provide the much needed jobs and comfort to the local community. I strongly support this initiative.

    I was under the impression that this development has already been approved?

    Jawaharvenkat commented

    First thing traffic isnt an issue for the children as they dont move in and move out often during school times

    The second one is many families are settling down around the glenwood area, so establishing a childcare will be of a great help for the parents around.

    Developing a heritage site into a childcare would be an appropriate and effective decision and parents will also show the interest and will be happy to see their children in such a heritage building :)

    Overall its a very good decision and it shouldnt be put down...hope this heritage site will turn into a place where children would love to go to.

    Finally, i support opening a child care in glenwood

  22. In Flagstaff Hill SA on “Regulated tree removal...” at 6 Holmes Court, Flagstaff Hill SA 5159:

    Nynke van der Burg commented

    I think only in really necessary instances should a beautiful large river red gum be removed. It takes many many years for a tree to grow to a size where it is 'regulated' and it cannot be replaced easily because of all the eco-system functions a large gum provides. Even planting young new trees can never replace it! It is of huge important to our local environment to have large gums like this because it increases biodiversity (which is important in so many ways) because a lot of different animals (and other plants) rely on it. A large regulated tree has nest holes and so is very important to our local wildlife (birds, possums, bats etc.). For humans it provides shade, filters our air and provides better air quality and trees increase our mental health too. It also increases house prices. Seen the huge importance of large trees like that I would not want to see it removed. Also in this area a huge number of trees have recently been removed already to make place for the new buildings on the golf club. It would be a huge loss to our area to remove our tree.

    What changes to the original application are requested? Excavation has already commenced in the car park.

    Sowmya Puvvala commented

    The beautiful suburb of Glenwood needs quality child care centre which can be very beneficial in helping children and young families alike, there are ways of conserving the heritage area and by adding the childcare centre will only be of benefit to the struggling economy in this hard times by providing extra employment options to public and will be a welcome relief to young working families. The council should consider this as a good future development.

    Far too many......roads are choked now. Especially as we are a 60 sone on a slight hill and already have trouble leaving our properties. Especially school pick up and drop off times.

  26. In Griffith ACT on “PROPOSAL FOR NEW DWELLING +...” at 77 Flinders Way, Griffith, ACT:

    Tabitha Taglietti commented

    My query is re the maintenance of the nature-strip and their land. Whilst it is vacant are you able to contact the owners to come and mow the nature-strip? I left a request on the fix my street site and their comment was they do not look after nature-strips the resident does. Flinders Way and Durville Crescent are very over grown with grass seeds/ weeds.

    Thanking you

    Ping Kai commented

    Quality childcare is needed in Glenwood area as there are not enough spots for all the children around this area if the building can be used without disrupting the facade and remaining with the heritage look why not!!!

    Childcare centres always have their own parking area so the street parking will not be affect as everyone does not go into and out of a centre at school times. Also if the centre space big enough can have before and after care it can have more beneficial for the community so why not

  28. In Glenwood NSW on “Use of a Heritage dwelling...” at 174 Glenwood Park Drive Glenwood NSW 2768:

    Sushma Doddala commented

    We are in dire need of childcare facilities with the constantly increasing population. Developing this heritage centre into a chilcare would be an appropriate, effective decision and in regard to the busy road, I am sure that will be taken into consideration by the developers and planned accordingly so as to avoid any inconvenience to the surrounding residents.

    We think the childcare in the area will
    Be very beneficial or families
    With young children. A good childcare is very important as one of our friends staying in the area have struggled to find a childcare as the ones they approached were full and the one they are enrolled are not very good. I fully support opening of childcare in the locality.

    Gagan Singh commented

    There are several young families in Glenwood with children who require childcare facilities. The current childcares are full and hard to find a spot, hence another childcare in this area is a requirement and I would support the opening of childcare at this location.
