Development
a) the proposed development will result in unacceptable impacts
arising from the traffic arrangements;
b) the proposed development will impact on the amenity of
Annandale residents caused by increased parking demand both
during the construction and operation of the facility;
c) further design development is required to ensure that the public
domain will be safe, pleasant and accessible for pedestrians and
cyclists;
d) a reiteration that the motor vehicle bridge that provides access
to the Tram Sheds from The Crescent be removed and that a new
point of access for motor vehicles be created through the Harold
Park development, to the Tram Sheds;
e) a reiteration that the former Rozelle Tram Depot include an arts
or culture facility;
f) a statement of concern that the Development Application
provides insufficient information in relation to the environmental
performance of the construction and operation of the proposed
development

Development
-no evidence has been provided to indicate that this traffic has been include
in the capacity calculations for the Chapman Road intersection or the
intersection of The Crescent with Johnston Street or the City West Link;
-this traffic distribution may not have been included in the Master Plan’s
traffic assessment as the intersection had not been, at that stage, been
confirmed as a signalised intersection;
- resultant increased congestion on The Crescent has the potential to
encourage traffic to attempt to filter through adjacent residential streets. In
particular traffic accessing their destination via Johnston Street would have a
high likelihood of diverting to adjacent streets if congestion at the
intersection of Johnston Street and The Crescent became severe;
- increased congestion on The Crescent has the potential to restrict local
accessibility by impeding access, for local residents, between The Crescent
and adjoining local streets

Sheds are adaptively reused for community, retail
and commercial uses that primarily serve the new
residential community and support nearby retail
