Campaign continues to prevent Harold Park overdevelopment

Public meeting: 11am Sat 4th Feb, St Scholastica College hall, 2-4 Avenue Road Glebe

Greens MP Jamie Parker continues campaign with the community to stop the overdevelopment of what was previously the Harold Park paceway.

Mr Parker will next week chair a public meeting ahead of the City of Sydney's Central Sydney Planning Committee decision about the first development applications for the Harold Park development.

The meeting will be one of the last opportunities for community members to voice concerns about the development before a final decision is made on these applications.

Mr Parker is supporting the resident action group FLAG Harold Park in calling for the Central Sydney Planning Committee to commission an independent consultant to prepare a micro-simulation model for the overall traffic network.

"There are significant community concerns that have not been addressed, including concerns about bulk, scale and density, and the lack of affordable housing," Mr Parker said.

"The development will create over 700 additional vehicle movements per hour in peak periods, however as yet the traffic impacts assessments are grossly insufficient.

"Comprehensive traffic modelling is urgently required to assess potential adverse impacts on surrounding suburbs including Glebe, Forest Lodge and Annandale."

Mr Parker held a packed public meeting about Harold Park in October last year and will continue to champion sustainable development outcomes for the inner west.

Public meeting on Harold Park:
When: 11am Saturday 4th February
Where: St Scholastica College hall, 2-4 Avenue Road Glebe.
