1 Why is this DA being pushed, now that the house is for sale? The internet, paper and billboard sale campaign highlights the house as a home: flowery sales pitch, glossy photos of styled rooms? No mention of it being able to be used as a business of any sort. Fancy landscaping, painted front wall, rooms filled with the latest in furniture, floorboards painted white. Not the sort of residence one would consider for a preschool nor buy then empty out to create a preschool.
2 I use Duncan St every day and have done for over 25 years. The road is extremely narrow and we have had a side mirror on our car smashed a number of times as impatient drivers in big cars push through instead of pulling to the side when another car is driving in the opposite direction.
3 To turn left OR right from Bond St to Duncan St is already hazardous and particularly so when a van or 4WD is parked close to either corner in Duncan St.

Imagine the chaos and the danger when 25 cars, which I assume will be a majority of large high bulky 4WD vehicles, congregate in the same timeframe morning and evening to drop off and pick up children.

4 For the sake of the residents who live in houses and apartments adjoining and in Auditory range of this proposed preschool Centre, I trust the ludicrous proposal that this Centre be open to community groups on the weekends has been squashed.
