The latest plan for Gladesville Shopping Village virtually doubles what was rejected previously. With 3 towers: 25 storeys, 15 storeys and 11 storeys it seems to be even more driven by greed and profit.
There will be
- even greater adverse impact on the character and amenity of the surrounding residential and commercial areas
- even more overshadowing
- almost no pedestrian interaction with the surrounding sites
- even more parking and traffic problems
- even more pressure on existing local infrastructure.
It still involves the demolition of a building of considerable heritage significance, which is on land previously owned by Council.
Hunters Hill Council, as a landowner of 25% of the site, needs to take action to ensure this scheme does not proceed any further. If it does not it will have failed to properly represent the community by taking a leadership role in how this site is developed.
