Goulburn Mulwaree Council and the Salvation Army have no idea of the problems, the angst, the anxiety and distress they have inflicted on the residents and ratepayers who reside near their (planned) subdivision at South Goulburn.
There is a lack of thought and consideration regarding the decision to allow a cul-de-sac to be included opening into Hollis Avenue, an extremely narrow and bendy street. This creates a potential death trap for all residents. Men, women (mostly elderly), children and motorists occupying the area are at risk, when this road already has a history of crashes dating back some 50 odd years.
An alternative position would be more effective.
It would appear that road safety protocols have not been adhered to by the council in their decision making.The decision affects the safety, well being and health of residents. This should at least have been handled by the road safety committee and other authorities.
If, in the future, a major crash occurs at this newly allowed death trap, then litigation may occur towards Goulburn Mulwaree Council and the Salvation Army.
The opinion of many residents and ratepayers who this affects is that the council should revisit and review (not just tick-a-box) this decision from the December 2020 meeting in the interests of everyone's safety.

The Australian Science Academy has established that. We, the unqualified are merely expressing an opinion. This topic has served as a political football for ten years.
Allan Jones, for one, should be held accountable for 10 years of deceit.
The Wollondilly River Walk is a major success and the council and related agencies should be congratulated on their efforts.
One thing that is missing, though, is a statue of TIDDALIK, the frog who drank all the water, which is an Aboriginal dreamtime story.
Might I suggest to the council that funds be provided for a statue of TIDDALIK at an appropriate site along the walk?
