What do you think are the main issues that need to be addressed in any major development in Gladesville. You can ONLY CHOOSE THREE (yes seriously):
- Lack of diverse housing
- Lack of green open public space
- Lack of community meeting rooms
- Too much traffic
- Location of community library
- Lack of car parking
- Lack of connectivity between transportation modes
- Lack of connectivity between shops facing Victoria Rd and the Coles Shopping Centre site
- Poor aesthetics, mismatched design, colours and materials
- Poor pedestrian network – lack of signage, uneven surfaces
- Lack of conservation of heritage buildings and sites.
Every single one of these issues is either IMPORTANT or ESSENTIAL and all of them will need to be addressed in any proposal. To single out only three issues from this list implies that the others are less import, which is clearly not the case.
This is one of the questions that people have been asked to answer as we plan the future for Gladesville Shopping Village. Tony’s Coote has made a full report on the problems that have been happening with Council’s community consultation on The future of Gladesville.
Footpaths on Victoria Rd are cambered so much as to make it uncomfortable for older people to walk along. Ups and downs of concrete paths make it easy to trip and fall. Cracked and damaged paths left by workmen, and holes alongside paths are a potential hazard, especially along the Gladesville Hospital side.
Insufficient car parking for commuters, as well as shopping in the Northern end of Gladesville
The bus service from Pittwater Rd Gladesville to Hunters Hill/ Woolwich is one an hour, and nothing on Sunday afternoon!!
This goes round in circles, people use their cars, don’t need busses, for those who don’t have a car , tough
Hunters Hill Council has consistently let the municipality down when it comes to future planning of commercial development, particularly if it’s west of the overpass. They have never been able to engage with developers about delivering any significant community facilities, a fact born out by their pathetic handling of the disgraceful overdevelopment in the so called Hunters Hill Village precinct to see this.m
