DA 2020-242, 7 level, 62 unit apartment building 118A Soldiers Point Rd. – TRRA Submission

We have objected to a new DA for a vertical 7 storey apartment building behind the Soldiers Point Bowling Club – a proposed replacement for the already approved final stages of the Greenside development, which were to be a series of lower buildings tiered up the slope.  See our detailed submission Click Here

This is our conclusion:

TRRA submits that the proposed development is simply too high (and ‘blocky’) to be compatible with the character of the surrounding area.  Council should not approve a re-design of the approved development simply because the applicant has encountered geo-technical constraints.  The re-design cannot in our view reasonably be considered an improvement on the approved design, and it fails to comply with a significant number of applicable planning controls.

The DA should be refused.

    Really you wonder why we have degrees in Urban Planning. Development in NSW is really just rapacious developers and compliant politicians. This is just another example of a proposed total over-build without any infrastructure backup – imagine the traffic on the already overcrowded access road.
    The building of course is in no way in keeping with the surrounding environment but then again blind Freddy could see that but then again we mustn’t stand in the way of developer profits and political party donations.

    The narrow road to Soldiers Point is an already congested . If developments of this magnitude are allowed then council will have to take a serious look at traffic management and more parking near the shops .
