Planning application at 27 Duncan Street Maroubra NSW 2035
May 15, 2017, 1:03 a.m.
Update on DA Childcare Centre @ 27 Duncan Street Randwick Councillors voted to approve this DA at Tuesday, 9 May 2017, meeting. Councillors Andrews, Stavrinos and Seng have lodged a recision motion to rescind the motion of approval. These Councillors argued against the decision to approve the DA, and highlighted the real issues in Duncan Street and the adjoining streets: • The well-known dreadful parking situation here in Duncan Street • How the street is narrow, and presents a risk to drop off and pick up of children • The DA does not provide required onsite parking • The 2 x t intersections with First Avenue and Bond Street • Is not a suitable location for a childcare centre • And importantly, is not in the public interest. The recision motion to rescind the motion of approval means that Approval is on hold, and will be taken to another Council meeting in a week giving us the residents one more opportunity to be heard, we believe that date is Tuesday, 23 May 2017. It is vital that we let our neighbours know what happened at the meeting, and we have been advised to urge all concerned residents to: • lobby all Randwick Councillors to make clear our concerns with the DA • have a large turn up of concerned residents at the meeting so that all Councillors are aware of our objection to this Development Application. There were 4 residents at the meeting last Tuesday evening, it has been recommended that we need many more at the next meeting if we truly want our concerns noticed. If you are concerned and would like Councillors to hear your objection, please email or write to all Randwick Councillors, before 23 May, expressing the reasons for your objection. If you would like some more information, or assistance in getting an email or letter to the Councillors, we are happy to assist. Please call (Gai 0418 970 523) or Poppy (0414 661 307)
