As a resident of Erskineville I am opposed to development on the scale suggested at the Ashmore Estate. The traffic congestion on Erskineville Rd and Mitchell Rd is already ridiculous and with the addition of housing on the scale suggested would be unbearable. The village of Erskineville will turn into a highway and not why I purchased here 14 years ago for.
There is already too much development in Erskineville and we have also had to fight to save Erskineville Public School and the Housing Commission Estate. We now have a stabling yard and the Carriageworks development is going to bring MORE congestion. In addition with the proposal to build a Thomas Dux and additional apartments where are all the cars going to go. I have not seen a proposal by the developer to manage traffic flow, just shove it onto Erskineville and Mitchell Rds.
Please reconsider the current proposal as I really don't want to have to move out of Erskineville and already know of at least 6 families that have because of the congestion that has already been introduced over the last few years!
I would be happy to meet and discuss
