Reorientation follows resident traffic observations
In regards to Development Application 54551/2018, traffic saturation levels on the Peninsula have been identified but it has not stopped development.
DA54551 has turned residential development 90 degrees from ingress/egress access from Blackwall Rd to Farnell Rd.
Reasons for this change are obvious for all those familiar with traffic flow on Blackwall Rd.
A consultant's report is not required to advise the obvious.
Reorientation indicates traffic is at saturation level, with more development to be rolled out across the Peninsula.
Residents can expect more abnormal land use planning decisions in the future.
Empiric knowledge should not be undervalued.
Compare the hours residents have contributed to traffic movement observation to the information compiled during the traffic consultants study.
This could be the reason why there is a reorientation of this proposed development.
Are there other abnormalities yet to be revealed?
Residents will have increased confidence to challenge information supplied with development applications.
Their knowledge is a valuable resource.
This DA54551 has established a precedent for the public which should be noted by all Peninsula residents.
