City being 'bullied' Over Harold Park (Inner West Courier)

LEICHHARDT Mayor Jamie Parker has accused the City of Sydney of allowing itself to be bullied by the State Government about the future of Harold Park, claiming there was "widespread discontent" over the city council's planning controls for the site.



He said the council was rushing to exhibit its recently released planning controls despite there being no comprehensive traffic modelling on the plans, and opposition to the allowable heights of some buildings on the site.


At last Monday night's Sydney Council meeting only Greens councillors Chris Harris and Irene Doutney voted against the plans which, if agreed to by the NSW Harness Racing Club, would see 1200 apartments built on the site in towers of up to eight storeys high. The plans also require 35 per cent of the site to be converted into public open space.
