‘Priority growth areas’: what about heritage & infrastructure?

The State Government has an ever increasing list of Priority Growth Areas, Priority Precincts and Urban Renewal Corridors now located all over Sydney. Local Council’s have no say over these areas.

Why is there so little provision for social infrastructure in these mega-plans?

For example, the Sydenham to Bankstown rail corridor will destroy entire suburbs in Sydney’s inner west, many of which have outstanding heritage value. The Government proposes to build 35,000 homes along the railway line, with towers of up to 25 storeys, with minimal provision for additional infrastructure.

Better Planning Network and other community groups have begun a major new campaign to fight the NSW Government’s plan to impose massive, low-quality development across Sydney. More information here.
