Geoffrey Judd started this petition to The hills shire council

A DA (development application 855/2021/HC for 340 Maguires Road Maraylya NSW) has been lodged with The Hills Shire Council for a Centre Based Child Care Centre fro 200 children in our RU6 (Rural Transition Zone) area. The residents of Maguires Road will be highly affected by huge increase in traffic movements (more than 800 a day Monday to Friday).

This is a rural area and the Child Care Centre will be serving house holds from other Urban areas as there are less than 10 children of this age in our road. There are no streetlights in this part of the road, no footpaths as well as no kerbs and gutters. The safety of local people who currently ride horses, ride pushbikes, walk the road and drive on the road will be severely compromised by traffic to access and service this centre. The noise level from traffic will lower the standard of the area and lower the value of the adjoining properties.

It does not meet the four objectives of RU6 zoning. (1) As it will create conflict with other land uses in this road. (2) It will have a detrimental impact on the rural and scenic nature of the area. (3) It does not protect and maintain land that provides a transition between rural and other land uses. (4) It in no way contributes to tourism or sustainable agriculture.

It is on a west facing slope with close to protected bushland making it a high risk in a bush fire. This property was burnt in a bush fire in 2002. How could they safely evacuate 200 children plus staff in the event of a bush fire that quickly starts in an area that has very limited access to control it? 

Maguires Road is windy and narrow withe lots of trees close to the edge of the road. This road is not designed to sustain the proposed traffic volume. The entrance and exit is shown on the plan to occur on a corner making it difficult to see cars entering and exiting.

For the above reasons we oppose the development and seek to have The Hills Shire Council and the NSW State Government reject the Development Application
