RSL LifeCare puts flagship Sydney village redevelopment on hold after resident complaints

Published on

As we covered here, the NSW Not For Profit had filed plans to demolish 15 single-storey buildings with 30 units to make way for 86 two-bedroom units at its Anzac Village in Narrabeen, 23km north-east of the CBD.

Now new CEO Laurie Leigh has withdrawn the application following complaints from existing village residents according to the Daily Tele.

Peter Yardley and his wife Janet Slater were chosen by the residents’ committee at the village to speak on their behalf and say residents are concerned about its “height, bulk, scale, overshadowing and privacy issues”.

Ms Leigh says she wants to consult further with residents before submitting a revised application.

Another example of the issues facing operators looking for redevelop ageing villages.
