    John Flint commented

    This application is a considerable improvement on the previous application which was withdrawn after much community opposition. Since I made a detailed submission last time I would like to state that I am cautiously in favour of this application.
    I would like the council to make sure heritage values are maintained and the amenity of the area evaluated to ensure the additional accommodation does not have negative impact.

  2. In Salisbury SA on “Detached dwelling addition” at 24 Goodall Crescent , Salisbury SA 5108:

    Robert Jenkins commented

    I have seen the listed development application for 24 Goodall Crescent but the description simply stated "detatched dwelling addition".

    Does this mean the lean-to veranda attached to the ATCO hut installed against the fence or the caravan that is being used as a permanent residence?

    Caravans should not be used as permanent residences in Residential areas and the ATCO hut is not in keeping with the character of the Goodall Cres/ Theta Street area. Thia area used to be classified as R1A.

    Laura crowther commented

    Please don’t destroy our stunning, hitstoric housing. We need to pass these beauties down to future generations. We will loose our history and beauty on the streets without it.

    Please require another tree to be planted to replace the removed one.

    David commented

    Another property with a coloured concrete or stencilcrete surfaced driveway and an unsightly plain uncoloured concrete Council crossover.
    Why does The City of Parramatta Council force this upon us when the whole area has coloured matching driveways to the kerb?
    The Hills Shire Council still allows matching driveways to the kerb and Parramatta Council should not be lowering our community standards.
    Didn't they tell us nothing would change when we were forced from The Hills Shire Council into the Parramatta Council?

    Jasmyn J commented

    Good morning Council,
    I respectfully request reconsidering placing a telecommunications facility at this site. There is a primary school and busy sports grounds located at this site, and the possible risks of exposure to children and other people in a highly central and much used facility area does not in any way meet community expectations.
    Thank you.

  7. In Sunshine VIC on “The development of a seven...” at 324 - 328 Hampshire Road Sunshine, VIC:

    K. Ryan commented

    Parking is already in short supply in central Sunshine, so allowing developments that do not provide adequate parking Is por planning, and negatively impacts on the amenity of the area. Locals will be discouraged from visiting businesses if they are unable to park.

  8. In Naremburn NSW on “Request to remove one (1) tree” at 63 Mitchell Street Naremburn NSW 2065.:

    David and Bronwyn Wilson commented

    The jacarandas are in flower right now, they are absolutely stunning and also the source of nectar for lorikeets and other birds. It seems such a pity that a builder is recommending the removal of a beautiful tree simply in order to repair a fence. Surely there is a way to restore the fence and secure the property without such drastic action. We need to keep as many trees as possible, especially ones such as these that provide food for our native birds. We object to the removal of this tree based on the reason outlined in the application.

  9. In Craigieburn VIC on “Use and development of a...” at 65 Amaroo Rd Craigieburn VIC 3064:

    Navin Chopra commented

    Dear Council,
    I strongly oppose the building of this facility Application No. P22489 by ENRGX PTY LTD for “Use and Development of a Waste to Energy Facility” at Amaroo Road, Craigieburn Vic 3064.

    This plant is far to close to residential areas, even if it does meet distance requirements by the EPA, surely as resonable people HCC can understand why there will be outrage if the proposal is approved. I'm not sure what gives council the right to risk the health of over 800 primary school students that will be attempting to that learn in an enironnment that is in such close proximity to the proposed address. Not to mention the many residents who are even closer.
    Please reject this proposal, show the residents of Hume that council puts their quality of life at the forefront of their decisions.
    Please don't destroy the future of our children. We don't want them breathing in the toxic air. Do children need more health issues on top of all the allergies, asthma, respiratory problems and the like. It's about a change in habit to prevent the waste, not disposing of it in a non environmentally friendly way.
    Regards

    This cannot be the best plan that council has come up with? There are other options in recycling as well as location! So much space that can be utilised and not close to communities.

  11. In Hamlyn Terrace NSW on “56 lot subdivision (53...” at 1-15 Hamlyn Road Hamlyn Terrace NSW 2259:

    Adel Firth-Mason commented

    It would benefit the aesthetics of the neighbourhood if CCC could please ensure that the new development ensures variety in the architecture and colour of the buildings, provision for plants and shrubs, and streets wide enough for street parking on both sides of the road.

    Also, each time these new developments are approved by CCC, please remember it's for an area which already has insufficient retail outlets and car parking, schools and tertiary facilities, and a more regular train service direct from Warnervale Station to Sydney and return without standing room only.

    Emma commented

    This is going to be so amazing for the community I can't wait..
    This town is booming and its unreal to see this development happening.

  13. In Carlingford NSW on “Development Application -...” at 132 Felton Road Carlingford NSW 2118:

    David commented

    Yes how true.
    Have been a rate payer for nearly 50 years in Kingsdene and still don't have a footpath, no gas, poor mobile coverage and poor internet. Still waiting for the NBN so I expect not much hope of traffic improvement .

  14. In Burrill Lake NSW on “Demolish Existing...” at 1 Princess Av South, Burrill Lake, NSW:

    Lucas Pratt commented

    This venue will be a much needed addition to the suburb and Burrill Lake is absolutely ready for it. The site really suits this style of development and it has been designed well.

  15. In Burrill Lake NSW on “Demolish Existing...” at 1 Princess Av South, Burrill Lake, NSW:

    Melissa Van Antwerpen commented

    What a beautiful venue in a beautiful location.
    Very excited that not only myself but my growing teenagers will have somewhere like this within walking distance of their home by the time they are 18
    Definitely what our area needs

  16. In Burrill Lake NSW on “Demolish Existing...” at 1 Princess Av South, Burrill Lake, NSW:

    Chris Beverley commented

    This is very exciting. Great for both local employment and entertainment. Exactly what Burrill needs to accompany the areas population growth.

    Excellent! Great for employment in the area and tourism .. we need more places like this for locals too :) hopefully they will also have good plans for an eco friendly working environment...

  18. In Bankstown NSW on “Use of property as a...” at 41 Marion Street, Bankstown NSW 2200:

    Tarek elkassar commented

    Hi,
    I live at 37 brancourt avenue , and i would like to voice my objection to the proposal on the basis of this will lead to additional traffic to the already existing traffic issue on intersection of winspear ave and marion street. There is alread a private school , a mosque and sports facility . This will cause delays in traffic movement and parking issues.

  19. In Epping NSW on “Tree Application - Removal...” at 17 Essex Street Epping NSW 2121:

    M.McCartney commented

    The submission of this TA seems inappropriate as this Ironbark, a high significance tree, is identified within the DA/546/2018 as being given considerable consideration by Council and appears to be a stumbling block for the DA. The amended DA recently submitted states the tree has been 'constructively removed' and references to it are a repeated throughout the DA. Therefore please do not assess this application separately to the DA (which is currently with the Land and Environment Court). I also object to its removal along with a number of other trees for removal on the site such as street trees to allow a construction zone and trees to make way for footpaths.

  20. In Northcote VIC on “Revised and reduced...” at 38 Clarke Street Northcote VIC 3070:

    James commented

    Totally inappropriate. We already have a similar development behind us and they have total visibility into our backyard and house, particularly at night time. We have young children and it feels like a complete invasion of our privacy.
    The planning process exists for a reason. They shouldn't be allowed to revise and reduce the screening measures that were approved during the planning process. This feels like a total abuse of process.

  21. In Burrill Lake NSW on “Demolish Existing...” at 1 Princess Av South, Burrill Lake, NSW:

    Michelle Akiva commented

    What a great addition to our area. It will be give employment to our growing community and also provide a beautiful place to eat, drink and relax with family and friends.

  22. In North Boambee Valley NSW on “Front Fence” at 10 Amadeus Place, North Boambee Valley NSW 2450:

    J hounding commented

    Hi

    This fence is an eyesore and does not reflect what the da asked for . It was meant to have a cut in with planting and wood surround . Can you confirm that this was inspected as it really is intrusive and does not fit in with the surrounding houses

  23. In Redcliffe QLD on “Material Change of Use -...” at Uniting Church in Australia 1 Richens Street, Redcliffe QLD 4020:

    John Brydon commented

    To Whom It Concerns
    I would recommend that the MBRC & Redcliffe Uniting Church give serious thought to the implementation of a safety traffic island at the intersection of Richens St & Williams St Redcliffe. Turning movements from driveways and intersections must be considered in this planning as well as pedestrians and the two child care centers at the end of Williams St. In recent years Williams St has become a short cut for the Ashmole Rd & Anzac Av intersection lights when RED. Vehicles cutting the corner of Richens St with speed and dangerous driving. Also vehicles speeding from one end of Williams St to the Houghton Ave intersection or from the Houghton Ave end the other way. Safety for those using both streets with design that will slow down traffic automatically, without the need for heavy-handed enforcement.
    I would appreciate your consideration with safety in mind for all.

    Andrea Tucker commented

    Brilliant for the area and our community. This thoughtfully and aesthetically planned development will certainly be a lucrative asset to our region. Adding value by creating jobs, luring the tourist trade and taking further advantage of such a beautiful location. Two thumbs up!!

  25. In Burrill Lake NSW on “Demolish Existing...” at 1 Princess Av South, Burrill Lake, NSW:

    Jordan Maloney commented

    What a fantastic proposal. Its clearly going to be a great facility that will only add to the facade of Burill and give locals a great place to meet. It will bring jobs to the area and improve an existing dated motel sight. Great to see!

  26. In Chatswood NSW on “Request to remove one(1) tree” at 23 Daisy Street Chatswood NSW 2067.:

    Peter Hayes commented

    This application is silent on action to replace the tree in the interest of conserving the present natural balance of greenhouse gas mitigation; a vital part of our local/national/global strategy for dealing with global warming and associated climate change.
    A statement or mandated condition for the tree removal with a replacement equivalent which extinguishes the threat posed by the existing tree would suffice.

  27. In Merrylands NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 20 Dan Street, Merrylands NSW 2160:

    Kim Kolo commented

    This is NOT something that is required in a small residential street.
    This is a narrow street with cars parked on both sides, with passing and exiting from our own driveways challenging. The turning circle where this development is located is small with the 2 townhouses next to 20 parking their cars out from the driveway, although they have parking available on their property, as well as parking on the nature strip.
    How can children be dropped off in a safe environment....they can't.... the congestion is not satisfied by the traffic report in the application. The Garbage Trucks also have enormous trouble turning in the circle on pick up days.
    Getting into and out of Dan St is a challenge due to the cars parked either side and the traffic in the morning on Burnett St when it can take up to 5 minutes to turn left due to the traffic going up the hill. The same is in the afternoon trying to get into Dan Street.
    I have photos of the parking and am willing to provide them .

  28. In Parkdale VIC on “Building & works...” at 275-295 Nepean Highway, Parkdale, VIC:

    Sarah Neilson commented

    Put it elsewhere
    The community have been more than vocal about this so I’m surprised it’s still even being looked at
    Children play and people live here.
    Find somewhere else
    I’m certain we are ok with forgoing a few bars more of connection in order to not fry our brains
    Please start listening to your community for goodness sake

  29. In Carlingford NSW on “Development Application -...” at 132 Felton Road Carlingford NSW 2118:

    Brian BORJESON commented

    OK for rate revenue, but what is the council doing about the additional vehicular traffic these developments will bring with them?

  30. In Greenslopes QLD on “Multiple Dwelling” at 69 Hunter St Greenslopes QLD 4120:

    S Lloyd commented

    I object to this one property being converted into 4 units. As an already heavily congested location due to the ever expanding Greenslopes Private Hospital. I realise there are many units currently in this vicinity but to add another 4 more would continue to saturate and add to this heavily congested location.
