The United Kogarah City Residents Association wrote to Kogarah City Council March 20, 2015, and received this reply from the Director of Planning, Mr Rod Logan, March 30, 2015.

We asked if any other studies have been conducted to support the draft Planning Proposal to be told:

“… Council was also informed by, Bright Future Better Lifestyle – Community Strategic Plan 2030 (2012-2014), Ageing Strategy (2013) and Demographics – Our Community Profile and Demographics.”

We also requested copies of any studies, reports or assessments if used, such as Traffic, Environmental, Development and Social & Economic impact studies:
“No, the Department of Planning & Environment did not request that Council prepare any further studies prior to issuing the Gateway Determination to exhibit the Planning Proposal.”
