We the residents of Werrington County and Werrington Downs are petitioning to have our voices heard in objection to: DA17/0919

We strongly urge Penrith City Council to listen to their rate payer’s cry for help here. We feel deceived with this DA17/0919 proposal by Lend Lease and cannot fathom how Council could contemplate determining it when the boundary ownership issue with Lend Lease has yet to be legally resolved.

Over 50 landowners are in legal limbo and Council, despite being the authority that can resolve the ownership matter, has failed to consult with any of the affected land owners. Council therefore must put DA17/0919 on hold until they legally resolve the boundary ownership dispute.

Council must facilitate a community information meeting for residents to provide residents with the information about the process of resolving the boundary ownership issue and also about DA17/0919. As mentioned to date Council failed to consult with residents on both matters. All elected Councillors should attend as well as Council planning staff.

When DA170919 is determined, we ask that it come before elected Councillors at a General Meeting for a vote. Residents must be allowed to attend and address Councillors at this General Meeting

The land immediately behind the houses of the affected residents was promised by Lend Lease representatives at a Lend Lease information meeting, held at Werrington Downs Neighbourhood Centre, to be a 50 metre green zone between the existing homes and the new development proposed by this DA, (never to be built on) and that existing residents would not have direct housing backing on to them. This DA proposes 67 Houses backing directly onto the promised green zone to existing residents houses. There are many affected landowners and Residents that were present at this meeting prepared to sign affidavits stating this to be true. 

Penrith Traffic is already out of control in peak times and on weekends. Northern ?Road, Mulgoa, Dunheved Road and surrounding residential streets are heavily congested. Our existing infrastructure cannot cope with all of these new developments. Lendlease is already building Thousands of new Houses and now the proposal is for another 67 houses along the boundary line that was promised as Green Space, all without any Infrastructure to cope.

In conclusion we repeat that we call on Penrith Council to stop the clock on the DA process until all of the boundary issues with are resolved. We want Council to convene an urgent public meeting for affected residents about resolving the land ownership and about DA17/1919. That the determination of DA17/0919 be by elected Councillors at a General Meeting not approved behind closed doors under delegated authority.

We await your response.

Kind regards, …………..
