Clover Moore Meeting with the concerned residents at Waterloo

The item below appeared in Clover Moore's eNews 875 on 14 September 2018 and reports on a meeting held between councillors and Waterloo tenants on 12 September 2018.

On Wednesday the City held our very important meeting with the tenants of Waterloo about the NSW Government’s plans to redevelop the Waterloo Estate with towers up to 40 stories and three times the density.  

The room was packed with tenants who are extremely concerned about the proposals – we heard from people who are worried about the loss of sunlight, their community garden, and most importantly, their way of life. The simple message from residents was that they deserve to know what’s going to happen to their neighbourhood and they deserve to have their say.

It’s absolutely shocking that this massive redevelopment ignores our planning controls and is being proposed despite the fact that this area is already surrounded by other huge development sites. I want to make it clear that the City does not support the plan.  

I was joined at the meeting by local member Jenny Leong, Deputy Lord Mayor Jess Miller and Councillor Philip Thalis who have committed to work with our community to protect their area.
