Campion College in western Sydney has been asked by the local council to re-evaluate a controversial development application, reports the Parramatta Advertiser.
Local residents submitted more than 40 individual submissions, plus a petition of 95 signatures, against the college's development application, predominantly in relation to privacy, noise and traffic.
The Catholic Liberal Arts college has applied to build a new library/academic block to form part of the future quadrangle, a student residential accommodation block and to build a facilities shed/office area.
Residents were particularly concerned about the three-storey student accommodation.
Campion College president David Daintree said the application was part of a wider master plan for the site, which was approved by the council in 2006.
