GREGORY HILLS , New South Wales
I've gone through the Architectural Plans, Design Report and the Infrastructure report (Elect & Comms) published/attached with the exhibition notice. There are couple of things that I want to bring to your notice that have a significant impact on the existing housing opposite to the proposed school building.

1. All of the mechanical plants/plant rooms, 1000 KVA electric substation, hydraulic/water pumping stations, waste pad, utilities service room have been designed to be located in one single direction, directly opposite to exiting housing on Long Reef Cct. These mechanical/ electrical /waste management utilities generate a significant noise and other environmental pollutions and will have a direct impact on the residents of exiting housing on Long Reef Cct. The structures built for these utilities are also not very visually appealing.
The site is surrounded by 2 large open spaces (one towards Gregory Hills drive and other towards Howard park) . These utilities can be located towards that direction which will significantly reduce any environmental and visual impact on housing on Long Reef Cct.

2. Apart from the location of these utilities which are directly opposite to Long Reef Cct, the short stay parking is also being built on Long Reef Cct. This road is already very narrow and adding a short stay parking on this road will increase the congestion on this particular road.

Looks like the proposed design has no consideration for the residents living on this side of Long Reef Cct. Every supporting infrastructure (electrical/comms/pumping station/waste removal/road usage) has been cramped into one particular direction of a narrow Long Reef Cct street. Request the planners/designers to have some thought around it and have some consideration towards the residents living on this street.
