No interest in community

I would like to make a comment regarding the article “Boarding House DA’s Spike’’ (Leader, July 18).

Recently the same approval happened on 21 Flide Street, Caringbah, where the council had objected to a  three-level, nine apartment building with only six vehicle parking allotments on one housing block. 

The council went to IPAH and won the case and the developer took the case to the NSW Land and Environment Court which overturned the council decision.

Once the developer had won the case he immediately placed the property for sale with the new DA attached. 

Not interested in the community and neighbouring houses that were around this development only interested in making a dollar and moving on to the next project. 

The NSW government do not care what the community think as they are all for the developers.

Sutherland Shire Council do not have any say anymore to how they want the shire to look as developers seem to have control of the NSW Liberal Government.

It is time that the community provided a voice to let the NSW Liberal Government know that developers only have one vote where the community has hundreds of thousands of votes.

By doing this, government will sit up and listen (especially as a election is due early next year) and take us seriously about these everlasting, hideous developments that are not in the community’s interest.
