CUB SITE - PUBLIC MEETING - THIS SATURDAY 4PM - MERCURE HOTEL

This is an invitation put out by the Coalition Chippendale Community Groups to encourage involvement in the Public Meeting being organised by the City of Sydney about the CUB site exhibition.
Did you know Fosters Plans propose: 
 
·       Parking for more than 2,300 vehicles   
·       8,000 workers/residents and hundreds of students – more than tripling our population
·       Twin skyscrapers up to 120 metres high (40 floors)
·       Massive towers banked back into Chippendale
·       Large scale overshadowing including much of the “park”
·       The demolition of the “Sunburst” building
·       Tens of millions of dollars earmarked for the Government
 
Disturbinglya draft agreement betweent the Government and Fosters, show there is a deliberate financial incentive which links "developer levies" to the amount of development approved. Disturbingly the Minister for Planning is also the Minister for Redfern Waterloo responsible for the RWA, who receives the funds for use in Redfern Waterloo.  We have asked the Lord Mayor to raise this with the Premier. 

In exchange our community gets a lousy overshadowed “foot-ball sized “ park.  
 
This is your last chance to comment.   As part of the process, Fosters must respond to the public comments before the Minister for Planning Frank Sartor decides whether to reject, approve or call for changes to the Foster Plans.  Importantly, there is no right of Appeal once the Minister approves the Plans.

To find out more about the plans and the issues at stake, we urge you to come to this Saturday’s public meeting -  ie 11 November at 4pm (to 5:30pm) at the Mercure Hotel (near the bus interchange.   
 
The meeting has been organised by the City of Sydney , in response to community outrage.  You will be able to give your comments and we will be making a presentation.  We urge you to come to this meeting, so you can really find out what’s going on.   
 
Fosters are likely to organise some information nights, however we urge you to come to this Saturday’s meeting.  Collectively we can  highlight community concerns and urge the Government to consider some critical changes.   We expect the media to be there.
