St Leonards and Crows Nest - Draft Special Infrastructure Contribution Plan

I wish to make the following submission:-

1. I support the concept of a Special Infrastructure Contribution as a
method of addressing current and future infrastructure needs arising
from densification of the St Leonards and Crows Nest precinct.

2. I do not think the current model will work because:

• The level of development required to meet the $113.6 mill fund
target can only be achieved through unacceptably high levels of
residential development.

•This residential development will render impossible the delivery of
the employment space capacity foreshadowed by relevant planning
documents.

• The scale of residential development required to meet the $113.6
mill target will create further massive infrastructure stress that
will necessitate a full review of the Special Infrastructure
Contribution funding model or major government investment to avoid a
planning disaster in the precinct.

• The proposed allocation of funds derived from the Special
Infrastructure is not fair and equitable as between the three LGAs in
the precinct.

3. I request that the proposed Special Infrastructure Contribution
model be reviewed to address my concerns outlined above in conjunction
with an overall review of infrastructure requirements.

Thank you for taking my concerns into account regarding the plan to be
implemented.

Kind regards

Christine Lucas
