Parramatta Council shoots itself in the foot

Parramatta Council shoots itself in the foot. I would like to express my disappointment in the decision to support the High Rise development of the NSW State Government to the most important Convict built site which is  more intact than any one in Australia.  Councillors it beggars belief that a site that is so significant to for the future Tourism of Parramatta can be decided by 12 people in the Council is unbelievable. Once any piece of the site in Fleet Street is built on, then all you will have is less green space, you are not able to give it World Heritage Listing as it deserves, you will have lost the unique opportunity to promote Parramatta as the best place in Parramatta to visit, no other place in Australia has these assets. Do you think that overseas people will come to visit and look at high rise, you can see that any place in the world.

The problem is that Council does not seem to love our city as most people do, it is looking at development and money instead of our heritage, I believe that all we will have is high rise glass boxes. I urge that all people who are passionate about Parramatta, make your thoughts known to the Council.
