 Jennifer Street Development Applications Update and Call to Action | 29 March

Save Jennifer Street

The elephant in the room for both of these proposed developments is how on earth were these two lots zoned R3 Medium Density Residential?

27 Jennifer Street is a slither of land sandwiched between a golf course (St Michael’s) and a driving range (Cullen’s), both of which are zoned RE1 Public Recreation, and 11 Jennifer Street adjoins National Parkland. 

Development on either or, even worse, both of the sites will further endanger the Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub and various fauna prevalent in the area, all of which should be preserved and nurtured, not destroyed.

11 Jennifer Street

As well as the significant environmental concerns embroiled in this proposed development, 11 Jennifer Street adjoins National Parkland, there are no other residential buildings on the eastern side of Jennifer Street, and all residential dwellings currently in Jennifer Street are on the western side of the road. A multi-dwelling development is most certainly not in keeping with Jennifer Street or the surrounding area, which comprises mainly individual dwellings of one and two storeys.

Significant amendments have been submitted as part of DA/101/2018 lodged in February 2018, with the consultation period expiring on 5 April 2019. With such a proposed shift from the DA as lodged, a new DA would generally be required. However, in this case, a new DA was not called for. 

The Prince Henry Community Association has lodged an objection to the amendments on behalf of all Prince Henry residents. Feel free to copy and paste or cherry pick for your own objection. The more individual objections received, the more likely our views are to be taken seriously. Remember the deadline for objections is 5 April 2019 — email your objection to council@randwick.nsw.gov.au (Att. Frank Ko).

27 Jennifer Street

On 12 March 2019 the Land and Environment Court conducted an onsite hearing for the 27 Jennifer Street Development DA/133/2018.

Having submitted a written objection to the proposed DA, the Prince Henry Community Association was able to nominate a reprentative to speak at the meeting on behalf of all Prince Henry residents. The CA representative spoke strongly in support of St Michaels Golf Club, which had submitted a very detailed objection to this questionnable proposal.

As expected, with the parties being so far apart, there was no resolution on the day. The matter reconvened in court and will be determined at a later date. This is another one to watch and question the appropriateness of the rezoning to residential.

please help me add some photos for the pine cottage, I want to give more ideas to parents what is the centre look like now, we are still plan the centre will open at the end of the March.

 Save Yarra Bay | 20 December

  Save Yarra Bay  Save Yarra Bay

The Save the Bay Coalition explains to the Prince Henry Community their grounds for opposition to a cruise ship terminal at Yarra Bay.

Thousands of residents, many businesses, our two local Councils (Randwick and Bayside), as well as other stakeholders are united in opposition to the New South Wales government's evaluation of Yarra Bay as a location for a mega cruise ship terminal. We are joined by our Federal and State Members of Parliament (Matt Thistlethwaite and Michael Daley) and the La Perouse Aboriginal Land Council, the traditional custodians of the land.

Yarra Bay is in a direct line to the ocean and huge swells can roll into the bay at any time of the year. The existing breakwater that shelters ships at Port Botany is west of Yarra Bay and would not protect the proposed terminal. A terminal in Yarra Bay would require massive investment in new breakwaters and other engineering works to protect gigantic berthed vessels from the effects of waves and wind. Read more...

The Save the Bay Coalition is appealing to local residents to support its important campaign opposing this unrealistic proposal from the NSW Government. Everyone understands the need to find a solution to cruise industry port constraints in NSW. However, a terminal in Yarra Bay or at Molineaux Point is not the answer.

Read the full story from the Save the Bay Coalition.
