Why is the RHVA concerned about this Development Application? (Please feel free to use these points in your submission using your own words)

·      We feel the proposed development is not compatible with the surrounding environment and housing (which is primarily single storey and detached).

·      The proposed dwelling does not adhere with the low-density residential zone requirements set out under the Local Environmental Plan (R2). 

·      We are concerned that if allowed to proceed in its current form, this proposed development would set a precedent for inappropriate development across the five villages.

·      With the potential to dramatically increase the size of our community, we feel the impacts of duplex and dual occupancy developments on water, sewage, amenities, local traffic and on-street parking have not been sufficiently modelled.

·      We have significant safety concerns around bushfires and the capacity to evacuate a larger number of residents on Bendalong Road should more of these dual occupancy developments be allowed to go ahead.
