Responding to the government plan for Parramatta Road, Jamie Parker MP, Greens spokesperson on Urban Growth and Renewal said:

“The plan is yet another gift for developers in the inner west, with a miserable commitment to affordable housing, no new green open space and absolutely no commitment to any additional public transport.”

“Without a commitment to light rail on Parramatta Road, or green open spaces for our kids to play, the government is simply proposing more crowded residential towers with poor transport connections.”

“The government has proposed a pathetic affordable housing commitment which absolutely fails to address the enormous need for affordable properties in Sydney.”

“The onslaught of development into the heritage suburb of Haberfield continues, with large-scale development proposed for Parramatta Road that wasn’t present in previous plans.”

“The plan also increases the areas under threat by at least 50% in the Taverners Hill precinct, imposing large scale developments of up to 8 storeys in residential areas.”

“This plan is nothing more than a green light for a developer invasion of suburbs adjoining Parramatta Road, from Granville to Camperdown.”

“This takes place at a time when local residents have even less say in future developments, as their councils have been sacked.”
