I am supportive of the park contributing to the local community and providing another physical activity option.
I do request that the lighting of the surf park be orientated and shielded so that there is minimal disturbance to the residents of the Newington suburb..
I also request that appropriate sound shielding by the use of vegetation such as shrubs and mature tree (or other physical means) be required as part of the development to maintain the general amenity for Newington residents, especially during the summer months with the later open hours.

Why does the traffic impact report have no consideration of potential impact on Newington residents in terms of parking on local streets or ingress/egress implications for both Newington and Wentworth Point residents travelling in and out on the sole access road (Hill Rd).

Whilst it might not impact in 'low peak' event times the impact on local parking, ability to get out of the suburb and the increase in drivers using the shared (pedestrian/cycle/car) Newington streets as a shortcut from Silverwater Rd is significant when major events are staged.

Whilst on it's own this one development might be 'reported' as having minimal impact it is the cumulative effect of all the 'minimal impact' developments, high rise construction and influx of residents (all of whom have cars) and that has had and continues to have a major impact on the 'green belt'.

Hoping people will use public transport does not mean they do and the routes available are limited in destinations and often delayed due to access through SOPA and the near vicinity (DFO in particular)

I do not believe the infrastructure is not in place nor properly planned to support the developments currently underway and should be addressed before further attractions are added.

Fantastic, Great News for all of us, is an amazing project that is going to boost the sport in this Area of Sydney, will generate a great number of jobs, will bring Life, Colour and Brightness instead of a dark asphalt unused " land spot".
Well done to all involved in this project.
Can't wait to get in the water and learn how to surf...
