July 8, 2017, 4:19 a.m.
1. The development should not be approved unless a thorough and proper assessment of economic, social and environmental impacts is first carried out and adequate provision is made by the imposition of conditions of consent to address or remove those impacts. 2. Charity Creek must surely be identified in a Green Corridors Program for ongoing funding,restoration and management within the Greater Sydney Commission's District Plan.If not, then Ryde Council should identify it and other creekline catchments across the local government area as a high priority in the Local Environmental Plan and Development Control Plan. 3.The proposed development must be required to exclude land along the creek as it is a floodway, and is also critical to the mitigation of recurrent extreme weather events, such as flooding and heat. 4. Existing vegetation.should be retained on the site; for residential amenity, social benefits, habitat values and amelioration of heat island effects. 5. Boarding houses require analysis of the extra demands on local facilities and support services provided by Ryde Council.. This proposal is one of several new boarding houses for which the Council will be responsible for providing many services. Can the demands be met? If not. then the application should be refused. 6. Ryde Council has placed many of it's existing land parcels and community facilities in a "Property Investment Portfolio" for disposal and re-development. These properties are community assets and should be retained to meet the future demand for open space, recreation, community facilities and local services. The new Boarding House residents will have demands that need to be met to support them. 7. The cumulative demand for services and facilities in Ryde LGA arising from State Government planning interventions and the Council's extreme pro-development stance must be determined and addressed to ensure that the whole population of Ryde can access the community facilities and services that are required. This information must also be made public. Ryde Community Alliance.
