    Bad for environment
    Nanjing Night Net

    Re: “Housing green light” (Leader, April 28). The new Sutherland Shire DCP does not appear to offer any comfort to our natural environment, except perhaps for the exclusion of dual occupancies from foreshore areas.

    Loopholes that permit non-complying developments “where strict compliance would be unreasonable”, and “balancing amenity” in regard to view corridors (where the wider public interest is already overlooked) will inevitably result in decisions that favour developers.

    Planting of indigenous trees is a nice gesture, but who will police their maintenance?

    Design disasters

    It’s not just that the developers and their tsunami of medium- and high-density developments seem hell-bent on giving the shire the population density of a Neapolitan slum, what really riles me is that they all seem to be designed by someone with a severe visual impairment and the aesthetic sense of a slug.
