Council Public Meeting on Central Precinct – 5 September 2022 6-7 pm

Council is holding a public meeting on the just exhibited Central precinct so that TfNSW can present and the community can ask questions. A letter from Clover Moore says this meeting will inform Council’s response to the proposal.

While this project is around Central Station, its issues of use of public lands, public benefit, heritage, connectivity, height and density are similar to those for the recently exhibited Paint Shop Proposal. Central has three connecting pedestrian and cycle connections while Eveleigh gets none but Eveleigh also gets city sized buildings because of the heritage on the site and TAHE’s desire to maximise its income from the sale of the site.

As this is both an opportunity to hear about the project from TfNSW and to inform Council, REDWatch suggests that attendees should familiarise themselves with the planning proposal and come ready with your questions so you can ask them or hand them to TfNSW and Council.

Concerns have been expressed about the lack of such an opportunity in Eveleigh for residents to meet with Council and inform their response and alternative proposal. For Eveleigh, REDWatch had a public on line briefing from TfNSW and followed this up with a community lead meeting. While five Councillors attended the REDWatch public meeting there is concern locally that Council's alternative proposal was not subject to consultation with the community before it was lodged in its submission. In fairness to Council, a four week exhibition period does not allow time for people to understand the TfNSW proposal let alone time for Council to formulate an alternative plan and consult on it.
