Pre-Determined Plan NSW State Government – Sinks Moxham Wetland.

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.

Moxham Quarry Environmental Wetland

  • 166 Windsor Road Northmead is “A Crown Land Reserve” the Northmead Bowling Club is built on this Crown Land – this is usually leased from the Crown at a nominal fee. I have not seen anything from the State government about the property being leased, in fact the State has no lease recorded, and the question is if it is leased, who is it, for what cost and who receives the money.
  • Developer Len Jones claims he has a lease on the property. Len Jones claims he is acting on behalf of “The State” Len Jones heads a company for private profit, if what he says is true, has he bought the lease from the bowling club; I have not found during my research any of this in the paperwork. In fact 6 days ago Crown Land Lease Department did not have a lease listed.
  • And who is LHJ Pty Ltd, there seems to be little or no information available which is a concern.
  • Crown Land is supposed to be managed by the State for the people of Australia – the duty of care of the State is to manage on the “people’s behalf The question is why is Crown land subject to exploitation by private developers who make a profit. This is not the only case in NSW, this type of development is before the “Courts as we speak”
  • Why has Mr Baird rushed the Crown Land Bill through Parliament during the amalgamation of councils who have administrators and not the people’s elected representatives, this bill changes the way that Crown Land is regulated? Why does the State Government not have a list of Crown Land and the status of it on public access?
