Following the relocation and redevelopment of the Sydney Fish Markets Infrastructure NSW is seeking the approval of the Minister for Planning and Public Spaces to change the city's planning controls to allow towers up to 45 storeys to be built on the former Fish Markets site.
The development will monster the foreshore, cast shadows on the solar panels of the new Fish Market and limit public access to Blackwattle Bay forever.
Instead of doing what is best for our community and the city, the government is trying to generate as much money as possible from this site to cover the ballooning $750 million cost of the Sydney Fish Market relocation.
The State Significant Precinct Study exhibition period closed 20 August 2021. Please make a submission to tell the government that our community wants a plan for this site that prioritises public access and greenspace not over-development.
A number of local community organisations are also opposed to this proposal including the Glebe Society, Pyrmont Action, Bays Community Coalition and Ultimo Village Voice.
