GEORGE Weily Place residents have been reassured a domestic violence crisis centre should bring minimal issues, despite a high risk rating from NSW Police.
Central West Police District Superintendent Chris Taylor completed a crime risk assessment for the development, which registered high risk for malicious damage, break and enter, stealing from motor vehicles and intimidation, and extreme risk of domestic violence-related assault.
As a result, Superintendent Taylor recommended a series of measures including CCTV cameras capable of identifying faces and high-definition recording, lighting and an intercom-controlled entrance gate.
He also recommended master keys be securely stored and a log kept of all keys loaned out, with locks changed should any be lost.
There is another of these centres within our district and we don't have too many issues emanating from it.Central West Police District Superintendent Chris Taylor
Residents had criticised the measures as protecting the facility, but not the surrounding homes.
Superintendent Taylor said he could not comment on the DA as he had not been informed of which conditions had carried through to the consent, but police already had experience with similar facilities.
"There is another of these centres within our district and we don't have too many issues emanating from it," he said.
"We find it's pretty much left alone - it's very secure, it's not broadcast that someone has gone to this place because it's a place of refuge."
Four councillors will put forward a rescission motion on Tuesday to reverse the DA approval with the hope of moving the access to the Northern Distributor Road.
