Re the article ‘‘ Housing ban threat: Council seeking permanent exemption from state housing code’’ (Leader, February 27).

Stop ALL development for a period of time, say 10 years, and let the shire settle.

More importantly let’s stop any more units from being built. We are congested ENOUGH!

The erosion of the shire’s beauty is caused by the high rise. There is no or very little green space provided for the residents.

The overdevelopment has to stop.

Well done residents. You just have to look at how this new wave of cheap and hideously designed housing is ruining St George area .... concrete boxes and flat roofs.

Stansell Avenue fears

The Stansell Avenue development is so wrong by any analysis.

(1) 18 units with one entry in a narrow cul de sac.

(2) A potential 37 cars to cope with + street parking for visitors.

(3) Up to 36 bins for collection by council being placed in the street.

(4) Emergency services access.

(5) Destruction of native vegetation not permitted to other rate payers.

Sutherland Shire Council must support the residents of Stansell Avenue and Dianthus Place to stop this totally inappropriate development.
