In reference to the ridiculous development proposal at 31 Alidenes Road, Wilsons Creek:
Without talking about the potential increase in unsafe car and people movements along Alidenes Road or the destruction of wildlife habitat or the polluting of our waterways with 15 more septic systems in a flood prone area, or the electro-magnetic field created by a high voltage power line connecting NSW to Qld, we also have the problem of the number of people in each residence.
At the moment there is only one dwelling, which sets the ‘standard’ for development. It is rented out to four couples at over $1,000 a week. This is not an affordable housing development. The developers can sell these properties to their overseas investors and rent them all… so the land will be owned by – guess who?
If the standard/principal resident is an indication of the developers’ intent it could equate to a minimum of 60 more vehicles, untold damage to waterways, elimination of wildlife, and accidents waiting to happen on our roads. Double these problems if two dwellings are allowed on each lot.
In the name of common sense the Council must say ‘No’ to this development.
