As a concerned citizen of the Wollondilly Area and someone who travels
along Argyle Street Picton past Picton High School each morning and
afternoon during 40 klm times I am very concerned as to the crossing
of students on the busy road They need to have a pedestrian crossing
and lollypop person for safe crossing of all students.Thankyou Glenda

Lack of planning documents provided for the temporary school site given
that the school is expected to operate on campus during demolition and
construction. Restricting the movement of 1130 students on site until
2022 is highly problematic.

Impact of demolition of ACM and general airborne dust on students and
staff as well as noise levels are further areas of concern.

A few weeks ago we were informed about the new proposed development
plans for Picton High School and we strongly object for this to
happen, main reason the enormous and lengthy disruption for the
students, teachers and staff. Perhaps Years?

There could be an better option. Our neighbour Mr. Alen Kent from
"Stilton Farm" proposed already for many years a development plans for
approval by Wollondilly Council which would incorporate land for a new
High School the land is 173 Ha in size

Here an article in local paper:

We have been living right opposite on top of the hill overlooking the
High School for more than 40 years. Three of our children where
students at the school.

We feel the upheaval by demolition of buildings in successive stages
with noise and dust and finding alternative classrooms will be highly
disruptive for 1200 students and in future finding more car parking
spaces for planned 2000 students which now already is inadequate as it
is. All this could be accommodated at the new site!

We suggest the best spot would be only 1 km away at Argyle Street
(Remembrence Drive) corner Stilton Lane Picton This land is very
slightly sloping and flood free with nice surroundings.
Another advantage is this rural land has been undermined for coal by
Tahmoor Mine and would not have much affect for subsidence as in
future will be the case for the present site at now Picton High
Presently there are not many homes at this location which would object
to building a new High School there
As attachment we provided a map from Google at this location with and
overlay of Camden High School as indication. This school was newly
completed also on rural land a few years ago.

We want the best and cost effective solution for a brand new Picton
High School
