I just got this project notice letter yesterday. I am not objecting this project, as I am one of the owners will live there and I need to make sure any future developments are suitable for local residents first. Therefore, there are some items need to be more details.

1) Size of the school

Traffic---It mentioned it will be a school for 1260 students and 120 staff, this area is a mainly new developing residential area with middle and high density residential building. Looking at local roads and traffic condition, such a big school will get more people on the road and more traffic time for the local residents, especially the morning peak time.

Building Size---We have been advised that we only could have two stories building for us, why they are able to build three stories buildings.
For a school with 1260 students and 160 staff, and a early learning centre for 89 children, dam, 357 car parking space, is there enough land for all facilities and room for each person using the land. Is it too crowed for everyone?

2) Size of Worship, Time of Worship, concern about noise and traffic affection.

a). what is the size for this worship, will it be extended or changed to bigger size in the future.
b). what is the total allowance amount of people this worship will build for.
c). when will it be using as a as worship? Monday to Friday or including Weekends?
d). When it will be a worship, from 7am to 6pm? any other time?
e). As it will build 357 car parking spaces, so I guess it will be for the weekend worship parking, is it correct?
f). Noise control, no any detailed information about the level of noise/music/speech and how to manage it, which I concern most.
g). All local residents sharing with this school to use Tallawong road, which is only four lines road. If this worship is designed for more people, how to manage car parking and roadside parking when people coming to this worship. I did see a lot of cars parking illegally and arbitrarily outside the worships at some other suburbs, even parking on some private properties.

As I mentioned before, I am not objecting this project, to make a nice living area with everyone in this local area, we need to think about each other and make others feeling comfortable to live together in this area.

Thanks for your understanding.

I strongly object to this project because there are many schools in the Rouse Hill, Schofields, Riverstone area already. Adding an extra school would increase the traffic making it difficult to get home and increase accidents on the road specifically with kiss and ride and drop offs. The entire process of building a new school would see only specific teachers being allocated jobs therefore not allowing jobs for other groups to attain positions. There are already a number of schools for these students to attend- therefore this Sikh Grammar School is not needed in the area.

This is one of its kind school which the Sikh community planned for in Australia. I fully support this community school as it develops a diversified school which I believe helps the community in getting more balanced multi-cultural society.

Thank you for allowing WaterNSW the opportunity to comment on SSD-9472.
The proposal is not located near any WaterNSW land, assets or infrastructure, therefore we have no particular comments or requirements regarding the proposal.
WaterNSW requests the Department continues to consult with WaterNSW for any development that may impact on our assets, infrastructure or land, using the email address [email protected]
Department of Primary Industries
The Department of Primary Industries (DPI) has reviewed the proposal and advises that:
* Any fish must be removed from the dam before it is completely emptied of water.
* Any exotic or pest fish species must be euthanised using iced water or clove oil. Refer to the Guide to Acceptable Procedures and Practices for Aquaculture and Fisheries Research (available on the DPI website).
*Native endemic fish must be relocated to a suitable nearby waterway.

Thank you.

We would like further information regarding the proposed road at the south east of the site. There is little to no information about the plans for this thoroughfare, it would significantly impact a residential area making the suburb congested and difficult to navigate during peak hours.

Kind regards,

I will become a resident of the area very soon, I do not wish to have people who does not belong to the community to be constantly visiting my neighbourhood and create disruptions. Due to the nature of a private school, anyone, including those who does not live around the area can enrol into the school. Thus anyone from anywhere will be coming to my home and places near my home constantly. I believe this will create inconvenience to me as a resident.

I am a resident of the area, by having a private school built around my neighbourhood will mean that the people living outside of my neighbourhood will be attending the school. I do not wish to have many people visiting my neighbourhood especially if they are not from the area. I believe this will create a major inconvenience for me and my family and possibly affecting the safety of my children.
