What You Told Us

The following points summarise what the Campsie community told us during the stage 1 consultation:

  • There was greater community support for Master Plan Option 3. Participants agreed that the development of a 16 storey slim line building was preferable to lower scale buildings that would result in a heavy block building form and greater overshadowing of Anzac Park. From the survey results, 53% of participants preferred Option 3.
  • 67% of survey participants who selected Option 3 knew that it required a taller building form that would exceed Canterbury Council’s height controls.
  • Participants expressed general support for the following design principles:
  • Taller buildings on the site (above 5 storeys in height) for residential apartments and seniors living.
  • Providing a bright and vibrant frontage at the Anglo Road and Dewar Street frontages with shops and cafes.
  • High quality architecture that demonstrated design excellence and the use of high quality finishes.
  • The community facilities that participants preferred to see co-located on the Club site included:
  • Event and community hall facilities for activities, courses, classes etc.
  • A dining precinct that includes outdoor restaurants and cafes.
  • Sporting facilities such as a fitness centre or social sports centre that could accommodate activities such as table tennis.
  • Specialty shops incorporating fashion boutiques.
  • An adequate supply of basement car parking.
  • Some participants expressed concern that introducing residential apartments on the site could result in pedestrian and traffic incidents and congestion issues.
  • Participants wanted to ensure that any redevelopment addressed the potential impact of the development on the surrounding residential streets with the key areas of concern being overlooking and overshadowing, operational noise, waste management, traffic generation and increased demand for limited on street parking.
  • Participants expressed strong support for undertaking pedestrian and streetscape improvements works to Lilian Street and the connection through to the Campsie Railway Station.
  • Some participants expressed concern that commercial development was not being considered for the site as they felt commercial floor space would strengthen the business function of the Campsie Town Centre.
  • There was a high amount of support for promoting the commercial, lifestyle and retail hub of the Campsie Town Centre with participants expressing support for the town centre to be a strong and competitive centre in the Greater Sydney Region.
