Never has there been a concentrated effort to sell off Public Land in Parramatta. Democracy is Dead and Buried in NSW. The Parramatta Residents turned out in good numbers to protest the move from the State Government to remove all means of our Democracy. Parramatta City Council had decided to fight numerous items before they were dismissed and replaced by Amanda Chadwick and her side kick Sue Wetherby. You may remember that the community lost the fight to put the portholes in the fake part of the Lennox bridge built in 1839. The result looks like a really bad add on, most photographers do not use the port holes when framing their photographs.
Geoff Lee the State member for Parramatta is also agreeing with Baird, Turnbull and Blakely, to sell off or destroy the assets that the ratepayers have paid for, in the city. Why don’t these people listen to the residents of Parramatta, are they drawing wages from the Ratepayers of Parramatta City and the Taxpayers of NSW. Why are they treating the Ratepayers and Taxpayers like a cash cow.
One of the groups fighting this sell off is the North Parramatta Residents Group, the only group who is doing something about this wholesale slaughter, they have successfully created a network of people who are quietly working their way into the underbelly of the political parties, the pen is mightier that the sword my friends.
And we might ask what happened to the plans that were raised a couple of years ago that allowed the War Memorial Pool to remain on CROWN LAND, but still allow the Stadium to expand. The Parramatta Park Trust had no right to give Venues NSW permission to take over our World Heritage Listed Park Land. Who is getting the contracts, who is making the money out of this, it is certainly not the tax payers and the ratepayers. We need to add a performance Clause to the conditions of the people who are making these decisions.
