    My husband and I own and live in 284 Galston Road Galston. we strongly support this application.
    This is an excellent way for Hornsby Council to work towards providing urgently needed new housing.

    Hello, can we please be provided with more specific and detailed information about the 'proposed alterations and additions', so that we can ascertain how it could possibly affect surrounding properties.
    Thank you

    Salvage is great!

    Drinking at salvage would be the perfect spot for a wind down after work.

    Totally agree

  4. In Tecoma VIC on “Amendment to permit” at 1571 Burwood Highway, Tecoma VIC 3160:

    N. Delmas commented

    20/02/2017

    The following OBJECTIONS apply.

    1. Now that a legible site plan is finally available on Councils eplanning web page that shows this sites survey information is clearly obsolete and not a true representation of relative ground levels due to works effected in September 2016.
    The documentation presented for public review during advertised period in December 2016 was of very poor quality and obscured all relative height data.

    https://eplanning.yarraranges.vic.gov.au/Common/Output/Document.aspx?id=gGoh5DdIEBw%253d&ext=pdf&rend=3

    2. Other information in the supporting documentation, published by the proponent and their agents, is not true and correct.

    3. This documentation discloses works effected prior to any Council approval not in accordance to any approved plans of any prior Planning Permits pertaining to this site that adversely affects abutting structures on abutting sites that have yet to be fully remediated by the proponent.

    4. This application contains a significant level of Material Errors and Omissions and accordingly should be rejected.

    5. All abutting site property owners of 1573 Burwood Hwy. Tecoma, were not notified of this application in December 2016.

    6. This site abuts Medium / High density development constructed at 1573 Burwood Hwy. Tecoma in 1975 (1 dwelling per 170 sq metres of land area) and so, a far higher number of residents are adversely affected by this proposed land use activity.

    7. No 'existing use rights' apply to this site due to an end of similar land use activity in 2010. This is well beyond the 2 year limitation to argue any existing use rights by the proponent.
    The proponent has failed to apply 'due diligence' as a Company Director by commencing works on this site prior to any approval and should not be granted any concessions or dispensation from the Planning & Environment Act.

    The above objections are by no means the limit of valid objections to this proposal.

    Rosemary Smith commented

    What a wonderful idea from Salvage for The Artarmon community. It makes sense for them to apply for a Liquor License, and my family and I give this our complete support.
    The Salvage team deliver safe, responsible and caring service and would continue to do this once they have been issued with a liquor licence.

    Totally support this, great little venue run by friendly and responsible staff. I see no issues with this going ahead and see it as a great addition to the area.

  7. In Sans Souci NSW on “Alterations and Additions...” at 377 Rocky Point Rd, Sans Souci 2219 NSW:

    Stuart Macpherson commented

    DA227/2015 – 283/2016 365-377 Rocky Point Rd, Sans Souci.

    I cannot understand how Council and JRPP have approved a development which exceeds Councils height limit. It should not be compared with the development across the road; The Jamison that site is bigger, has fewer units and has access via 3 streets. This proposed development is accessed via one street Bonney Street.

    Council should send this proposed development back to the drawing board and consider the surrounding residents who are the ratepayers for the Council. Residents would not be allowed to build a second level – let alone 5 levels, on their garage, so why is it different for developers to exceed height limits.

    I object to this development in its current form and highly object to the Additions and Alterations submitted.

    Residential Street, Bonney Street is greatly affected and residents can foresee what is going to happen with the increase of people, visitors, cars, no parking, noise, garbage collection – so why can’t Council see.

    As we do not have ward Councillors to represent the ratepayers I call upon Members of Parliament and IHAP to look into this matter to ensure that Council abides by the Council regulation that we as ratepayers have to abide by.

    Stuart Macpherson.

    Bianca Yee commented

    I think this is a fantastic idea and would be great for the Artarmon community! The boys at Salvage are really responsible and would bring a bit more life back to the local area!

  9. In Artarmon NSW on “On-premises licence - New...” at 5 Wilkes Avenue, Artarmon, NSW:

    Helen Carter commented

    Yes, we fully support the application for an on premises liquor license by Salvage Coffee. It will be a fantastic addition to the local community and night life.

  10. In Artarmon NSW on “On-premises licence - New...” at 5 Wilkes Avenue, Artarmon, NSW:

    Mike Yee commented

    I can already picture the warm lit courtyard with locals relaxing over a quiet drink and nibbles after work and on weekends. The Salvage boys have really brought the community so much joy, quality and value with the cafe during the day, and I have no doubt that they will create the same vibe with the license in the evening. I can't wait!

  11. In Artarmon NSW on “On-premises licence - New...” at 5 Wilkes Avenue, Artarmon, NSW:

    Elliot Williams commented

    I think this is a wonderful idea. Salvage Coffee has a strong connection with the Artarmon community and the residents of Artarmon have a strong connection with it. This would add so much to the courtyard in Wilkes Avenue, increasing this small, boutique area's profile. This will not only be good for residents, it will be good for the local economy.

  12. In Marrickville NSW on “Review request under...” at 43-51 Addison Road Marrickville NSW 2204:

    Mike commented

    Residents surrounding this property have already lost a great deal of on-street parking due to visitors to Globe Mills, and the development at 65-69 Addison Rd (restaurant and 10 apartments) which has not only taken away at least 3 parking spots on Fahey Lane, but the block has NEVER used the on-site 4 parking spaces, and the residents, restaurant staff and patrons add a further round-the-clock burden on street spaces.

    Even before a hotel or other property is made at 43-51, access to Fahey Lane is going to be a mess for a year (as it was with the 65-69) with blockages for residents and garbage trucks, plus all the builders blocking driveways with their vehicles.

    We now have commercial waste bins already blocking Fahey Lane part of the time, and a hotel will add more. It seems that all vehicle access is on Philpott St and Fahey Lane. Philpott's narrowness is already to be burdened by being an exit/entrance route for the two new apartment blocks on Addison, plus the Cowper St block plus the townhouses on the narrower Fotheringham Lane. Fixing the parking geometry and placing time restrictions on these streets needs to be done BEFORE any more construction is piled on the north-eastern end of Addison which has some of the narrowest streets in all Marrickville.

  13. In West Melbourne VIC on “Use and development of land...” at 512-542 Spencer Street West Melbourne VIC 3003:

    John wood commented

    Unsure how a super market will unload their trucks. Is it from off the street? I think not! I had to engage council several years ago to prevent Staging Connections of 101 Roden from unloading in the centre of the road during early mornings, late evenings and 3am. The new apartment development at 101 Roden street have 30 vehicles parked out front most nights of the week. This is after having applied for a reduction in car parking requirements during the planning process. I also find it concerning that the developer of 101 Roden approached the proprietor of 97 Roden (Travellers Auto Barn) during the construction phase and asked Travellers Auto Barn to cease parking vehicles on the street as they are affecting off the plan sales due it limited on street parking. I observed Cardno's Traffic Managemnet doing a survey for the developer during Easter holidays and weekends creating a false impression there is ample on street parking. Never was a survey conducted during a football game. Currently, who is accountable for the prompt collection of countless dumped supermarket trolleys and their discarded packaging from the footpaths?

    Hi Peter,
    Just this part now awaiting your information.
    "Regarding your questions on the property sale, I will also get you a formal response from officers. I do know however that the ratepayer received a great sale price considered at the high end of valuation."

    replied to Brian Whitelaw

    Dear Brian,
    Further detail as requested,
    Peter Mitchell

    The land parcel 2-16 Wynyard Street, Cleveland workshopped by Council throughout 2014. This was followed by a Council resolution for the land to be transferred to Council to Redland Investment Corporation (RIC), on 10 December 2014. This site was transferred as it was identified as land that had the potential to generate a positive financial outcome to Council and the community, while providing stimulus for the rejuvenation of the Cleveland CBD Revitalisation Strategy and economic uplift.

    An independent valuation was carried out to determine market value. The property was offered for sale, with three companies expressing and interest and making an offer to purchase. The company, which ended up purchasing the land was a willing buyer prepared to offer above market value to meet the requirement of his business and inject millions into our local economy. The local company that purchased the site, LJ Hooker, plans to establish a new office complex. It will provide the company with the opportunity to generate local employment in our community, while growing their business. This is a reflection of the confidence the company has for the growth in not just Cleveland, but the wider Redland economy

    The company’s move to the new building will free-up car bays within the Cleveland CBD, with additional parking bays to be added at the Redland Performing Arts Centre.

    Would be great to have a place on Addison road where you could get a coffee until midnight ... Ash is a lovely community-maker and this will be a really special place for people to come together, enjoy music, have a glass of vine / or a cup of coffee and relax. I fully support this application.

    Helen commented

    This new? DA is virtually identical to the original DA of Janury 2016, which was rejected!

    Why is the name of the applicant blocked out?
    Is the applicant Vince Perry again?

    How has the applicant, in this 'new' application, further addressed how occupiers of the proposed 61 motel rooms can move in and out of nearby Philpott and Perry Streets, as well as Gordon Street, when already residents can't easily access Addison Road safely.

    And Is a motel a desirable type of building adjacent to a residential area?

    Residents in the 'Globe Mills' facing Gordon Street who now overlook single residential dwellings in Gordon Street, will be facing a 4-storey motel, with verandahs lit up at night, and the accompanying noise/partying that 'motel' guests are known to create?

  20. In Coburg VIC on “Development of a six storey...” at 65 Sydney Road, Coburg VIC 3058:

    Dr Anita Pisch commented

    This is an overdevelopment of the neighbourhood, which is already congested . Six-story buildings are out of character with the neighbourhood and will directly impinge on backyards in the neighbouring streets. I particularly object to the request for a reduction in the statutory car parking rate and waiver of loading bay facilities. This area is already parked out and residents have difficulty parking after work and on weekends. If there is to be a retail and business component to the development, EXTRA parking facilities and a loading bay are necessary requirements, otherwise this strip of Sydney Road, already in gridlock, will become wholly unnegotiable.

  21. In Coburg VIC on “Construction of two double...” at 29 Chandos Street, Coburg VIC 3058:

    Dr Anita Pisch commented

    This is an overdevelopment of the neighbourhood and will destroy the character of the street. Double-story buildings are out of character with the neighbourhood and will directly impinge on neighbouring backyards in Chandos Street. This area is already parked out and residents have difficulty parking after work and on weekends.

    Dr Anita Pisch commented

    This is an overdevelopment of the neighbourhood, which is already congested. This area is already parked out and residents have difficulty parking after work and on weekends. There are too many flats crammed into a small space, and this number of residents and their visitors will only increase the existing gridlock on Moreland Road

    Nick Logan commented

    Salvage Specialty Coffee is an award winning Artarmon coffee with a progressive and delicious menu. A liquor license would mean they can serve their excellent food and drinks to Artarmon residents at the end of the day. Artarmon really needs venues like this where residents can meet up for a glass of wine/beer and and some food on the way home.

    We are an adjoining neighbour and have not received any plans or notices. The only notification we had was real estate agents wanting to buy our property for this development.

    Sean Spark commented

    I fully support Salvage Specialty Coffee's application for an on-premise PSA liquor licence. Wilkes Avenue is a great community spot in Artarmon which would benefit from having a friendly place where people can relax and catch up over a couple of drinks.

    Brett commented

    The planning authority has the ability to leave their lasting legacy on our suburb...not by way of construction but preservation!

    We need to stop wallpapering over the history of our special suburbs like Ashbury so developers can make a quick buck, ruin a whole suburb and then move onto the next one!

    Joanne Cross commented

    17th February 2017

    Mr Rob Noble Chief Executive Officer
    Central Coast Council (Wyong Office) PO BOX 20
    WYONG NSW 2259

    Development Application No. 1511/2016 Asphalt Plant 203 Tooheys Road Bushells Ridge NSW 2259

    I wish to object to Development Application No 1511/2016 on the following grounds listed below.

    1. How can this be economically viable to build a new processing plant at Tooheys Road when the already established plant at Doyalson that could be upgraded at a less cost than building a new plant. The upgrade will cost less at the established plant which can be upgraded to meet the EPA and Environmental standards?

    2. Air Pollution of Poly Hydrocarbons (PAH) will be admitted to the Air from this plant this will entry to the atmosphere. When the winds blow in the direction of a southerly the residential of Bushells Ridge Road, Hue Hue Road, and Tooheys Road will be affected by the PAH emission from this processing plant which will then in turn fall on our roofs of the houses and this will then in turn affect/contaminate our domestic drinking water.

    3.. Residents Tank Water will have PAH in their domestic drinking water. Also Dam water for Stock, water for the native animals will be contaminated and cause deaths to native animals and birds. There has been sightings of Dingo’s in Tooheys Road and also Charmhaven to Wyong areas. These dogs are protected. In the EIS there is only mention of the Koala inhabitant, but there are many other native species in this area that have not been taken into consideration.

    4. On Tooheys Rd and Bushells Ridge Rd and Hue Hue Road there is a Environmental Protection on these properties which was imposed by Council.

    5. On our property there is environmental protection for Glider Squirrels.

    6. There is vast amounts of native animals birds plants which will be affected by Air Quality and the list goes on.

    7. We have great concerns for Creeks and Waterways close to this Proposed Asphalt Plant with run off water, as well as diesel from the tanks that will be placed on this site this will affect marine life in these streams. If there is a diesel spillage on this site where will the run off go to?

    8. Roads infrastructure is inadequate for Bushells Ridge Road and Tooheys Road are a Rural road with five School Buses a day on Bushells Ridge Road some sections two Buses cannot pass one another due to the width of this Road. These roads are not constructed for Heavy Vehicle traffic that will be required for construction of this plant. Previous developments on this road have caused destruction of the Tar Sealing.

    9. The section of Bushells Ridge Rd in front of our house is laid on contaminated Soil. This cannot be disturbed, and if the tar surface breaks up this tar surface has to be replaced immediately to prevent contamination to our home and domestic water. This sealing of this road in front of our home was instructed by the EPA this contaminated foundation for this section of this road was supplied and laid by Wyong Shire Council.

    10. If this industry cannot meet EPA and Environmental standards now at Doyalson where this company has operated for years, how will they meet the EPA and Environmental standards at a new site in Tooheys Road?

    11. How can this plant meet the standards when it stated in EIS that hot asphalt will be placed in trucks already and covered with a tarp? How will a spillage be controlled and how will this affect traffic on the link road or any other roads that will transport this material?

    12. There has been no consideration for the residents of these areas with the EIS stating that the plant will be operating twenty four hours seven days a week. What noise constraints have been considered for the residents of these areas?

    Yours faithfully
    Ms J. Cross
