Mr Joel De Haan

 

Item 3 – Development Application DA16/0330 Demolition of Existing garage and carport and alterations and additions to the existing dwelling Lot 10 DP1014266 (no. 5) Riverbank Drive, Emu Heights

 

Mr De Haan, applicants spokesperson, spoke in support of the recommendation. Mr De Haan highlighted how this development aims to address concerns including height, setbacks to suit the estate, view and neighbourhood. Mr De Haan communicated to the councillors that the design and layout of the unique block means that the partial excavation below the current floor level of the dwelling for the garage and under house storage is similar to numerous other dwellings in the estate to minimise the impact on the environmental and aims to maintain the amenity of the estate. Mr De Hann expressed the development has been designed in such a way as to minimise the impact of any view loss or reduction of the amenity of the area.

 

Mr Clinton Lewin

 

Item 4 – Proposed Reclassification of Public Land in the City Centre (Union Road and Welch Place Car Parks)

 

Mr Lewin, an affected person, spoke against the recommendation. Mr Lewin expressed his concerns about how the growing Penrith population affects the parking availability around the city. Mr Lewin believes that Council should ensure adequate parking is created and provided prior to public lands being sold off to private developers. Mr Lewin outlined the new high-rise residential blocks and increase of development in the area increases the need for more parking to support this growth.

 

87  RESOLVED on the MOTION of Councillor Marcus Cornish seconded Councillor Ross Fowler OAM that an extension of time be granted to enable the speaker to complete his address, the time being 7:46pm.

 

Mr Lewin advised that the minimal parking affects the community and council should oppose the recommendation to redevelop land and community concerns regarding congestion within the area.
