New South Wales
From the noise and vibration impact assessment report, it does not state Barber Avenue residential area is directly affected in the text (Table 2.1) although our townhouses here are neighbouring Onyx building on Barber Ave. Our townhouses are are highlighted in blue in Figure 2.2. I believe my comments will have relevancy to noise and impact of the new redevelopment as it will impact my residence.
I am submitting a comment due to the excessive heavy machinery noise at unreasonable hours in the Nepean Private development. In this circumstance, they initiated work at 8pm and went well after midnight. The company (not the same construction company) did not reply to emails sent about the noise. This noise was found to be around 60-70 decibels which makes it excessive of World Health Organisation standards for night time noise (https://www.euro.who.int/en/health-topics/environment-and-health/noise/policy/who-night-noise-guidelines-for-europe#:~:text=According%20to%20these%20guidelines%2C%20annual,as%20sleep%20disturbance%20and%20insomnia). This site highlights the effects of noise creating sleep disturbance which can impact health workers in the residing area.
Therefore, my comment is to please only approve limited construction times to 7am till 6pm at the latest following the recommendation in section 4.1 of same noise and vibration impact assessment report.
