The precinct village project as shown in the renderings look well thought through with sincere a focus on open space, free canopy, public recreation. I hope these themes stay at the forefront of design as the project progresses.

The communal area looks to be one that is attractive to walk, ride and catch public transport to, and the surrounding precinct needs reflect that.

The Moore Park pop up cycleway will be a great benefit and should be formalised with high quality landscaping ASAP, along with investigations into other connections from the south (particularly Dacey And Driver Avenue).

A mix of bars, restaurants that complement the entertainment quarter and Oxford St would be of benefit. However my main message in this submission is for the precinct to be heavily walking and cycling friendly.

There is absolutely no need for a 1500 space parking lot to be built in this location. There is public transport - buses and light rail - on the doorstep, it is a short walk from central railway. We cannot have gridlock in this residential area before and after events. If you build parking, people will drive, it's as simple as that. There are plenty of parking spaces in the city, for those who come from further away - there could be shuttle buses to bring them to the stadium.
There is also no need for this 'village' building - yet another building on top of Kippax Lake, on top of the park. It will soon no longer be an open space but just a dense mini city. The Entertainment Quarter already exists as just that - a precinct for entertainment, cafes, restaurants, retail etc, for anyone before or after events. There is no need for retail in what is essentially a residential and sports area. Nearby Oxford St is a prime retail street - it is a mere five minutes away.
I completely object to this being built.

CENTENNIAL PARK , New South Wales
Message
I have the following concerns about the Sydney Football Stadium redevelopment

Access to nearby streets:

Having a driveway to enter or exit the proposed car park on Moore Park road would cause traffic to build up on Moore Park Road. It would be impossible to enter of exit Poate Road during an event.

Parking in nearby streets:

My biggest concern is that with the increased capacity of the new stadium, the parking in nearby streets will be further restricted. There was already a major issue with parking in nearby streets when there was an event with the previous stadium, now with the planned increase in capacity, parking and traffic management is a greater issue.
I live in Poate Road centennial Park, which has 1hr parking up to 10pm. This 1hr parking only effects the locals. Anyone going to an event just ignores it and takes there chances with parking officers that hardly monitor the street. Previously during events there would not be a single spot available anywhere for residents. Event patrons completely ignored the 1hr parking limit. The last 2 events at the stadium before it was demolished, were sold out. Event patrons parked all over the footpath on Poate Road. The stadium should be required to monitor for issues like this and should have been required to call tow trucks to have the cars removed and fined for the damage to the grass areas next to the footpath.

It is not good enough to say that there is an existing 1hr parking restriction and therefore no changes are needed. This issue is affecting the amenity of the residents. The stadium is causing the issue and should have controls in place to minimize the effect of its patrons disturbing the local residents.

I propose that during events local streets should have parking for residents and their guests only. This sort of arrangement is not unprecedented. Next to the beach at Watsons bay the parking is for residents only. The residents should be provided with free stickers identifying them as residents of the street and they should be provided free guest passes for their visitors.

Even at non event times whenever Moore Park road is busy, many cars drive through Poate Road as a shortcut. Poate Road should really be for local traffic only.

Noise level for nearby residential properties:

The existing level of noise from the previous stadium should not be exceeded. I was very happy with noise level of the existing stadium. Most of the time during events I could not hear anything. The SCG on the other hand, which is very open, the noise that comes from it is at least 10x louder than the noise from the previous Sydney football stadium at my location.

Also, I believe there should be strict controls in place for any sort of alarm. Currently the SCG has a faulty fire alarm that goes off at least once a week. It is super loud and says evacuate now when there is no one there. It regularly goes off in the middle of the night.

Also the definition of a faulty alarm needs to be clearly defined. When I contacted the SCG about their fire alarm constantly going off when there is no fire, they said it is not faulty because it went off for a reason. The reason just happened to be something other then a fire even though it was a fire alarm. Also the alarm would go off for around 10 mins because apparently they are not allowed to turn it off and need to wait for the fire brigade to come and turn it off.

I find it really strange that it goes off so much and yet has never gone off during an event at the SCG.

The stadium should be designed to be enclosed as much as possible to restrict noise from it polluting the nearby residential properties.

Other:

With the SCG, on event days they close off driver avenue so they can prepare for the event. Any closing off driver Avenue to prepare for events at either the SCG or Sydney football stadium should be during off peak hours only. Once the Lang Road end of Drivers Ave was blocked at 3PM on a Friday afternoon. Many parents pickup and drop off their children at the Lang Road end of Drivers ave before and after school to get Buses on Anzac Pde. Blocking the road at peak hour created a major traffic problem.

Also with the increased height of the development, I propose that the existing FSR, and height limits of nearby streets like Poate Road be reviewed as they are very low. With the stadium having the opportunity to be redeveloped and increase it size, so to should other nearby locations.

Dear Sir/Madam
I absolutely support this brilliant scheme and initiative. The benefits of removing carparking from Moore Park East during events is to be celebrated ( no more dust, congestion, damage to lawn, bottle tops , broken glass etc). I love the concept of tennis courts, NW facing food and beverage facilities and safe green precincts for families to enjoy. Importantly I would hope/assume this precinct is open at core business hours during the week and not just weekends(?)
Judging by the aerial view- there appears plenty of opportunity to utilise some photo voltaics for energy generation- Perhaps this is proposed?
I have no doubt you'll get the usual groups objecting....but it would only be from fear of change
Love it!

The proposed provision of 1500 car parking spaces is not in the public interest. It would not mitigate local traffic congestion, and may will exacerbate it. The community would be better served by enhancing the attractiveness of access by improved public transport services. This is what the expensive terminating road at Moore Park light rail stop was supposed to do.

The proposal meets the goal to remove patron parking from public parkland. In doing so the proposal moves Moore Park"spots" under the old members' car park with a few extra spaces. The community served are precinct workers, the occasional member of the public and SCG members (especially the tennis players). THERE IS STILL INSUFFICIENT PARKING FOR THE PUBLIC TO MATCH THE STADIUM CAPACITY. Parking demand and traffic managment solutions stop in this proposal at Driver Avenue and Moore Park Road. The proposal ignores the broader community impact from patrons continuing to park in surrounding residential streets, clog a wide range of streets and roads either hunting for spots or trying to get away.
The proposal is deficient in not recognizing the broader community problems to which the Precinct Village will contribute. Patrons expect to find parking. It is convenient and possibly free in the streets. There is no mention of a realistic solution to remove this expectation, reserving the village car park for patrons with a genuine need to avoid public transport. Please refer to the Optus stadium parking arrangement (no public parking on event days) and the Suncorp arrangement (15 minutes parking on event days), Homebush Stadium (resident only parking on event days). These solutions will drive public transport uptake in meaningful way.
Residential streets are currently used for all day parking by Stadium construction workers (6 am to 3 pm). Please ensure there is adequate parking space for workers, ARU building workers, Easts women players etc during all construction activity.

It is imperative that the existing trees on the periphery of this development along Driver Avenue and Moore Park Road NOT be removed or DAMAGED in any way - not the canopy and not the ROOTS. Excavation of the site must respect these trees and the new landscaping needs to include low grasses and greenery right across to the surrounding pedestrian footpaths of these streets. Up to a few years ago there was greenery there but it was brutally removed by a front-end loader causing possible damage to roots. Please do NOT take this as an excuse for removing trees now. Look after them.

I enthusiastically support the proposed landscaping of the roof of the carpark. It must also be MAINTAINED by the ‘football’ custodians. There is no such thing as a no-maintenance urban landscape.

The designers of the modifications to SSD-9249-Mod-6 and to SSD-9835-7 should be congratulated for coming up with an innovative partial solution to the event parking issue at the precinct. The use of underground parking will make a huge difference. I live in the area and my family and I are excited that the design of the stadium is in good hands. We look forward to enjoying the precinct when it is completed. We also look forward to the removal of the pop-up cycleway which is both dangerous and aesthetically negative compared to the new stadium

A joint submission from Rugby Australia and the University of Technology is provided in the attached letter.
The key issues are:
- Support for the project.
- Addressing short-term impacts on Rugby Australia House particularly loading and servicing
- Addressing long- term loading and servicing of Rugby Australia House (possibly through minor design amendments)
- Ensuring a seamless integration of the public domain design and traffic design with the existing public domain and vehicle entry of Rugby Australia House
- Providing for pricing mechanisms to encourage use of the proposed car parking at non-event times for Rugby Australia House users.
