"We just can't be favourable of it with what they've given us."
Marco and Nadia Lanza, Collina residents, are adamant they are not against the manufactured housing estate proposed for Collina.
They just need more information before reaching a conclusion, and say the submission period should be extended to allow residents to be properly informed.
And they are not alone.
Joined on Thursday by fellow residents, they explainedhow collectively, much of Collina was fighting against the Lincoln Park development application as it stands.
The application also says it will cater for seasonal and itinerant workers... How exactly does or will that work?Nadia Lanza
A petition created by the residents has already garnered over 100 signatures to stop the application from being approved.
Poll results collected by The Area News online indicate mixed feelings about the estate.
Just 28 per cent of respondents thought the estate would be good for Griffith, with 30 per cent not supporting the development at all.
A meager 7.6 percent thought it would help solve the current housing crisis, and other ten percent needed more information.
Their concerns are manifold; The lack of detail in the documents supplied to council, the history of aged housing in Griffith, the future of the estate should these developers leave, drainage issues and impact on Yoogali, an increase of traffic driving through the suburb, the proximity to farming land, the regulations adhered to, the length of time for the build, and finally: location, location, location.
"They've sugar-coated this application - it's just not adding up," Mr Gugliemino said.
"If these developers leave, what's to stop if from becoming something else in the future, something much-less desirable? What happens if there is not enough people to make it viable?"
Questioning the demand for this kind of estate in Griffith, they said many people over 55 are content to stay where they are, in their own homes, and would not seek this as an alternative or see it as a better option despite any statistics sighted.
"It's not on the coast, it's not near a golf course, it's removed from the CBD - why would anyone move there?" Mrs Lanza said.
"The application also says it will cater for seasonal and itinerant workers," she continued, indicating to pages 16 and 17 of the Statement of Environmental Effects.
"How exactly does or will that work?"
With more questions than answers, they are calling on Griffith City Council to facilitate a community information session, where the developers explain and answer the questions left "unanswered" in the DA.
The submission period for objections ends today.
Griffith City Council was approached for comment.
