Mosman Council
MOSMAN , New South Wales
Thanks for providing Council an opportunity to comment on the proposed modification to the Taronga Zoo Upper Australia precinct.

Council is concerned about proposed additional tree removal. A condition should be imposed requiring suitable replacement trees to be provided to ensure that the landscaped character of the Zoo is maintained with the dominance of landscaping over the built elements and that the new works are not highly visible from the harbour.

Concern is also raised about proposed changes to the roof reflectivity condition given that it is not clear if the new roof will be visible from the harbour. A condition should be imposed to ensure that the reflectivity and visibility of the roof is minimised.
