Cnr. Queens Ave & Bowns Road, Kogarah
Dear Kogarah Residents,
We asked Kogarah City Council to provide a public forum to engage the community in discussion about the many changes proposed for Kogarah’s Local Environment Plan (LEP).
Kogarah City Council told us in reply, they would not host a public forum; this is why we are holding a community meeting next Sunday, 17 May 2015.
We have a short time to become informed and voice our concerns. We will live with the results forever. We must act today, to get the best results from development for our community, within an environment in which we can all live.

The New City Plan is not the solution, it will create more problems Council has got the planning WRONG:
- it doesn’t align with the State’s plan for Sydney’s growth over the next 20 years – sub-regional plans for Kogarah as a ‘strategic centre’ won’t be drafted until mid this year;
- it is not accommodating housing targets set by the State – no targets are set for Kogarah LGA;
- it doesn’t take into account the need for additional open space or playing fields for an increased population, and no improvements to infrastructure and facilities have been planned;
- it ignores NSW Government Department of Planning guidelines which discourage developments near busy roads due to the serious health risks associated with traffic noise, pollution and vehicle emissions;
- it will create loss of privacy and overshadowing from multi-storey buildings in low scale residential areas, but no solar access or wind studies have been conducted;
- it will bring thousands more cars into Kogarah LGA streets, but no traffic or parking studies have guided the drafting of the LEP.
