New South Wales
I disagree residential living should be incorporated in buildings there, only commercial. I disagree the heights be up to 20 storeys , but 10 storey max .
If residents were living right on Showground, the noise from the events there would see a surge in complaints to council. The area is for entertainment. You cannot share space with events and personal living. It will prove incompatible . As well, people down below , may be targeted from sticky beaks or without being aware , being filmed etc, from people up on their balconies. Keeping it commercial/ office space will see weekend no one really up there to be annoyed and take secret photos etc....
The area should also cater for horse/livestock shows. There should be ample parking space for that . Dogs must not be the only acceptable animal there.
I am angry that government land freely now applauds and is promoting a masterplan for itself. Council and planning have spooked developers for us in the precinct. Our house values to sell to a developer are now much reduced , because of lack of competition , due to lack of potential to come and build for high rise on our blocks. At the beginning ,there were numbers of developers interested to buy .Now scant and at a discount offer buy , due to no competition.
I ask this master plan does not further compromise us getting a DA approved to build high rise too in this precinct. We are already up zo selking az a loss to what we could've received, had council not intervened with their Draft..It is very hypocritical , that council stresses high rise must be limited , due to not yet started new infrastructure , and yet
government today releases a masterplan for up to 20storeys ... We have felt the pinch severely , to hold our horses, and not run to build high rise in a mad rush on our blocks, because council pulled the reigns on us all by spooking potential buyers. Is the council going to relax the reigns to developers to build at their heart's content apartment sizes, to maximise their profit dollar there in thid master plan? With the apartment mix for us, it has squeezed developer profit dollar for our blocks - hence spooked developers from buying our blocks, or by DA rejections.
I ask masterplan consider what I have written.
I hope what may go ahead with this masterplan, does not cause a stall or DA rejection, when we submit for our sites .
