There is no democracy in NSW at all, the NSW Government has decided to sell off Public Land put aside by the “Crown” for the future use of the community. this affects as many as seven sites in Parramatta, this is happening during the forced council amalgamations, when Parramatta is run by a Baird Government appointee Amanda Chadwick.
There is a plan by Baird the members of his government to deny all rights of the people in NSW to protest, or have their concerns raised, the public meeting held to discuss the problems of the Moxham site was effectively determined even before the meeting started. The community was told that the State would do whatever it wanted despite what they were worried about. Recently Pittwater was put through this type of process, despite many objections they were overruled by the Baird Government. This video shows how the GSC and the Department of Planning work together.
An American Professor, Chairman of the JRPP and now Commission Chairman for Lucy Turnbull’s Greater Sydney Commission has effectively recommended the rezoning the Moxham Quarry Wetland at Northmead, (this site is the State Seat of Seven Hills, Liberal Party Member Mark Taylor is the sitting local member), Parramatta for High Density Housing…..
The State Planning Department officer sat and gave her views on the flawed EIS statements agreeing with them even thought speakers pointed out the flaws, there were no independent studies as you expect for a development, she agreed with the proponent and was spoke against the myriad of local residents, and past Councillors of Parramatta City Council who has fought since 1999 to stop this Quarry from being destroyed. Even the rich Aboriginal history has been ignored by this bloke from America.
The Quarry was abandoned in the 1950’s due to the miners hitting the aquifer, sand stone finds is not waterproof, no cap will hold it, it will seep out somewhere else. If built the community on the Wetland would be have a bigger threat from bush fires, one road in and out will put lives at risk.
Something is on the nose in NSW, the community needs supporting, we call for an inquiry into the sale of Public Land, the community won “Talus” and “Rutledge” is a force to be reckoned with, it is about time that some one takes a hard close look at what is going on.
