The Area is a high priority wildlife corridor and home to at least 10 vulnerable species including powerful owls, vulnerable bats, microbats and a microbat colony. Removal of 150 mature trees from a designated 'high priority' wildlife corridor. The noise of construction and tree removal will immediately impact the wildlife.
Hazards: The building site is surrounded by Fire Prone, Flood Prone and Geotech hazard prone land.
Traffic issues : There are 2 nsw black spots on Cabbage tree road, multiple accidents and deaths have been recorded in the past.
Evacuation risks for all surrounding residents. Traffic jams and lack of access during emergencies such as fire or flood.
Proposed height and bulk creates a drastic 'change in streetscape' and it breaches the local LEP height requirement.
It is not in the public interest: The Financial state of the Golf Club is not in the public interest it is only the Golf Club member's interest.
Visual impact of the development on it’s surroundings: The SCC was granted based on the point that (quote) “The proposal will not be prominent in the urban landscape”. It is quite evident that an open space golf course does not visually present as an 'urban' landscape and in fact the 7 building complex will be extremely prominent in the landscape.
Land Use: The legislation criteria requires that 'most' of the adjoining land must be used for 'primarily urban' purposes which this open space recreational land clearly is not for this 2HA site.
Seniors companion animals (cats and dogs) in a designated wildlife corridor will impact vulnerable and significant species in the area.
200 Extra residents will cause damage to the wildlife by entering bushland around the wildlife corridor which is habitat of vulnerable species and also adjoining private bushland.
Noise and lights from 4 storeys plus rooftop areas, plus restaurant, community centre, winery, cafe and 95 apartments with parking for 200 cars will significantly affect the amenity of nearby residents and impact wildlife.
Crime: How will crime be prevented in this isolated open area, as required under the legislation?
Current Sewerage leaks and smells will be made worse.
Storm water run off will not cope. Current infrastructure is already to capacity.
Too many Seniors Villages in Bayview already: Council has said they do not want a cluster of seniors villages in the one area. There are 4 within close proximity already.
The land is a high priority wildlife corridor and this should have been considered in the public interest.
The development is not in the public interest as majority of the community don’t want it and it is only of benefit to Club members.
