THE future of a proposed Buddhist temple in Cabramatta West will be determined by the Joint Regional Planning Panel [JRPP] tomorrow.
Despite traffic concerns, Fairfield Council recommended approval of the application by the Australian Chinese Teo Chew Association to build the temple at 47-51 Edensor Road.
The council's development control branch is in favour of the development, subject to several conditions.
When discussing the matter in council, talk focused on possible traffic and noise impacts to the surrounding area.
One of the major concerns was the fact that the site is at the intersection of Edensor and Meadows roads, which experiences "high traffic volumes".
"The site has poor pedestrian access, particularly from residential properties to the south," a council report stated.
"In this regard, visitors/worshippers from the south will be required to cross two regional roads representing a major pedestrian/vehicular traffic hazard for the area."
Other concerns included claims of insufficient on-site car parking.
A number of conditions have been placed by council on the application.
