The development includes plans for the construction of a road to access the proposed subdivision from an intersection 40m from the Pacific Highway on Bruce King Drive. It anticipated that this proposed access road and intersection which will service about 700 vehicle trips per day, with the majority of this traffic heading east along Bruce King Drive during morning peak times and turning from the Pacific Highway into Bruce King Drive to access the proposed access road during evening peak times.
The proposed access road would traverse existing community land and will impact significantly on the safety and enjoyment of the land surrounding the community garden and community centre for:
The construction of this access road would also include the clearing of nearly 4,600m2 of native vegetation, including 3,000m2 of Prime Koala Habitat.
The Boambee East Community Centre is submitting an objection to the proposed development because it believes the proposed access road will negatively impact on the safety and amenity of the community land on which it resides and the safety of Bruce King Drive. We believe that the proposed development will also have an unacceptable impact on our local koalas.
