Thirroul residents have once again objected to stop a controversial townhouse development being built at 28 George Street.
Developers are seeking to demolish the existing home and want to construct four townhouses and one level of basement car parking.
Residents are concerned there will be three-storeys units because of the basement car park and the development is a similar footprint as the original proposal.
In February the application to demolish the old house and build five townhouses was deemed an "overdevelopment" that was "out of character with both the desired and the future character of the area" by the Wollongong Local Planning Panel.
Residents have raised concerns about the development being out of character with the coastal town, traffic congestion, and the high number of townhouses already planned or under construction in the suburb.
Jeremy Park was one of a dozen residents to air their objection to the proposal on a Planning Alerts website.
"I find the revised plans offer little in the way of addressing the previous problems with the rejected previous plans as determined by the Wollongong Local Planning Panel," he said. "The issues that are of concern are numerous and have only grown with the new development application for 28 George St. Where some small improvements have been replaced with new larger issues."
Rebekah Donaldson said she objected to the development because it was "significantly out of keeping with the character and feel of the area".
Janice Brown said "it's irresponsible to continue to develop in this street when there is such a lack of infrastructure. There isn't even a footpath on George Street after the first two blocks."
Residents still hold concerns the application, if approved, will set a precedent for the permissible developments in Thirroul in the future.
The application will be assessed by the Wollongong City Council and the Wollongong Local Planning Panel is likely to determine the outcome of the development proposal.
