Chris O'Neill , of  Greenwich NSW, made the following submission on the project:

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
• 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.
