PUBLIC FORUM

 

 

SUBJECT          Proposed Development - 16 Dorahy Street, Dundas

REFERENCE    DA/710/2007

FROM                 Ms Karen O’Riordan

 

          STATEMENT     By Ms Karen O’Riordan:-

 

“I would like to provide the Lord Mayor and Councillors with an opportunity to understand the concerns of residents regarding the proposed development at 16 Dorahy Street Dundas.  A fellow resident spoke at the last council meeting regarding applications for DA’s submitted for three applications which were deferred to allow further consideration and a site meeting which was held a couple of weeks ago.

 

These DA’s, and four additional DA’s that directly back on to existing properties on Paul Street Dundas, are on the development agenda for this council meeting and I wish to speak on behalf of residents regarding these applications.

 

The residents would like to express concerns that the consultation process has not addressed the concerns of the residents that have been expressed via letters of objection, telephone calls to council and vocally at site meetings facilitated by council.

 

We are concerned due to the fact that these matters have not been addressed either because of our inability to express the issues in a way that is consistent with Parramatta City Council town planning guide lines, or purely because the developer believes that paying lip service to these objections will enable the project to be passed with minor inconvenience. We would like to take this opportunity to ensure that councillors fully understand our objections prior to making a decision on behalf of the residents of Elizabeth Macarthur Ward.

 

I would specifically like to talk about, but not be limited to, the privacy concerns, pad height and shadowing effects caused by proposed solutions and why the proposed solutions either do not take into consideration the residents concerns or are offering a bandaid solution to a permanent and irreversible decision.

 

We, the residents are seeking our Councillors support in ensuring that our concerns are adequately understood and addressed by both the developer and the council before approval of this development is given.”

 

Note

Councillor J Chedid arrived at the meeting at 7.13 pm during consideration of this matter.
