The Plaza DA

Under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act, proponents have the ability to enact a “deemed refusal” clause - basically, this means that if they feel the assessment has taken too long, they can appeal through the Land and Environment Court. It's been nearly two years since the first iteration of the DA. Wollongong City Council has a long list of issues that have not been adequately addressed in the proposal.

The is the second re-exhibition of the DA since the developers enacted the deemed refusal, and the fourth since the first DA was exhibited in May 2020.

The community MUST make a new submission. If you made an earlier submission to Council regarding the previous iteration of the DA you may have received notification from Council inviting you to comment.

The exhibition period commenced on Wednesday 30 March and close on 13 April 2022.

Once again we need to make sure that our voices are heard and our concerns about this large development are taken into consideration. It is OUR Village after all, not just one developer's.

TfNSW Traffic Plans - Thirroul Community Feedback

The Feedback Summary Report on the proposed traffic improvement options for Thirroul was released last week. The report has captured and responded to community feedback received on the proposed traffic improvement options displayed in June and July 2021 for Thirroul. It was clear the community do not believe either of the proposed options would meet their needs.

Nick McLaren Interviews TfNSW about Thirroul Traffic Plans

TfNSW does not seem to make the link between them rejecting their own proposals for clearways and continuous lanes of traffic through Thirroul, sacrificing LHD Street Parking and the Thirroul Plaza DA inflicting exactly the same thing! How can a state government agency abandon their own plans, and then accept a set of plans, equally damaging to the Thirroul town centre, proposed by a private developer with private interests?
