The traffic is already at a standstill around here let alone putting more apartments, cars and people in. Your actual job is to look at if infrastructure can support this kind of development. No it can't. Already there aren't enough roads, and roads that are there are already restricted in terms of not being able to drive down all of them due to no through roads and heritage overlay. Furthermore, there are not enough primary schools to service the population - KPS is working way above capacity as is Holay Rosary. There is no local high school nearby. Put some money into education instead! PT is already standing room only at 6.30am and parking is impossible for residents who do live here. This is an unsustainable and quite frankly a negligent development. It should not receive council approvement and should not go ahead. There are already apartments up a couple of hundred meters down the road either side of this site as well as Arden just a couple of kms down the road too - and that is more than enough for the area. Too much even! As a council you should be encouraging investors to make Docklands more liveable instead! That's an area that you seem to have given up on because it had too many apartments and therefor didn't work. Put in schools, a cinema, play areas, community spaces and community will grow there. Have some common sense, please!
