PETITION: LIVEABLE DEVELOPMENT IN CANADA BAY

To the Honourable the President and Members of the NSW Legislative Council, this petition of certain citizens of NSW notes that:

The NSW Government has announced major changes to planning in the City of Canada Bay. While the objectives of the plans are worthwhile, these plans will lead to:

  • six to nine storey apartment buildings next to single storey houses due to poor planning rules;
  • substantially reduced new affordable housing which will last for only 15 years;
  • over-riding of heritage listings which will put at risk about 80% of Canada Bay LGA’s heritage buildings;
  • lax rules on tree protection making it impossible for Canada Bay to increase its tree canopy;
  • throwing out the council’s planning informed by previous community consultation.

Your petitioners support the intention of the NSW Government’s plan, and the need for action to address the housing crisis. However, we request the following improvements:

  • Proper development planning rules;
  • Permanent affordable housing at a rate of 5% of new dwellings, comparable to affordable housing provision rates in other programs across Canada Bay;
  • Maintaining full standards for the protection of heritage and trees;
  • Government to commit to providing necessary infrastructure to match the increased future population, including additional green space, trains, buses, roads, schools (especially a new high school) and more.
