Chris Minns MP says –


I give notice that on the next sitting day I will move that this House notes that:

1) This house condemns the Minister for Planning for his arrogant decision to reverse the will of the people and impose 7 storey buildings in 1 and 2 storey residential streets.

2) Notes that this decision was taken while the democratically elected Councils of St George were sacked.

3) That his Statement that the community where “exhaustivley consulted” is obviously his attempt at morbid black humour.

4) Calls on St George Liberals to repudiate this arrogant Minister and instead stand with the people of St George.

The state government has approved the Kogarah new city plan but with significant changes to height limits.

The plan has been years in the making and was fiercely opposed by residents who raised concerns that the changes would see the area over-developed and lose its character.

Under the proposed plan building heights of up to 39 metres were recommended for the Kogarah Town Centre.

Heights were also increased in parts of Allawah, Beverley Park, Blakehurst, Carlton, Hurstville, Oatley, Kogarah, Sans Souci and South Hurstville.

The plan was adopted by council during a meeting in April last year with significant amendments made to reduce heights in Blakehurst, Carlton and South Hurstville after backlash from the community.

Those changes were overridden by the state government when the plan was officially gazetted late last week. Read the rest of this entry »
