The beginning of the end of the Peninsula we all love
First it's four storeys and 63 units on The Sporties Club site then comes a DA for three storeys and 34 units on Blackwall Rd.
Has anyone asked the people of the Peninsula whether this is the direction they want to see the Peninsula go?
The Blackwall Rd DA, if approved, will be the beginning of the end for the current low-rise lifestyle of the Peninsula we all love.
With almost all the current housing stock in Woy Woy zoned for 11m height limits (the Blackwall Rd DA exceeds these limits) we will see a flood of overdevelopment now that developers can see what they can get away with.
Replacing several freestanding houses with 30, 40 or 50 units is inevitably going to triple and quadruple the potential population of the Peninsula.
The resulting traffic along Blackwall and Ocean Beach Roads would be truly horrendous.
The Peninsula's charm has always been that it is not Sydney.
Why are we so keen to bow to developers in the pursuit of nothing but profit at the expense of lifestyle and amenity of current Peninsula residents?
Call your local Council representative and tell them, this is not the Peninsula you want for your children and grandchildren.
