Second Best For Parramatta

THE MINI HOUSE.

The LNP NSW Government wants to put the Power House Museum in Parramatta, it will not be a big Power House, and it will be called “the mini house”, why because it will be 25% of the size of the Sydney Power House, a small cottage museum. Parramatta could have and deserve a “Museum of Australian Identity” this is a vision that although at the moment is just a seed of an idea, but a government with vision could get behind the people of NSW and investigate the idea, of course this would save millions of dollars by not moving the specially built and designed Power House in Sydney. Here are the current plans http://architectureau.com/articles/site-chosen-for-new-powerhouse-museum-in-parramatta/

captureParramatta Memorial Pool which was dedicated to the soldiers of World Wars will cost millions of dollars to destroy and then rebuild, the LIBERAL NATIONAL PARTY government of NSW have no plans, no money, expect the Parramatta ratepayers to pay up again, then the Parramatta Administrator Amanda Chadwick and the NSW Government want to build an artificial lake instead of a pool for training kids how to swim, how is that for planning.  The ratepayers of Parramatta will not have a pool for at least two seasons and maybe three, and with the current heat waves and the level of drowning, that could be fatal. All they need to save all that is move the Stadium upgrade a few metres like a plan a couple of years ago, how about that for common sense. This is what Parramatta will have in the heart of Parramatta.

The LNP NSW Government wants to destroy the North Parramatta Convict precinct by cutting it up, putting light rail through and smothering it with high rise. Instead they could create a precinct that would bring in millions of tourist dollars both for Parramatta and NSW. How about that idea for the economy. Have a look at what is provided to tell tourists about the area. Zilch, nothing, local and State tour guides do not know what is available, most Australian people do know about the Parramatta Female Factory.

The LNP NSW Government are chopping up the World Listed Parramatta Park, the current Park Committee, has no historian, no heritage representative, no idea of preserving the park for future use and green space, they want to put a stadium on part of the Park which is Crown Land, it will be a concrete car park with commercial businesses. Lucy Turnbull says that the Park is one of her favourite places, well Gladys show Lucy what you are made of and help the NSW communities save our precious gems in NSW instead of selling them to fund development. They have also mooted to have a Lagoon on the old Golf course.

gladys_portrait-webGladys Berejiklian is the current Treasurer of New South Wales and Minister for Industrial Relations in the second Baird government. She is also the Deputy Leader of the New South Wales Liberal Party. She will be sworn in on Monday 23rd January 2017

Born: 22 September 1970 (age 46),

Member of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly since 2003

If the current government is smart and the members of it listen to the people of NSW, they would be office for a very long time, but the the current policies of council amalgamation, sale of public assets, privatisation of Crown Land, destruction of suburbs by uncontrolled high rise developments which will turn into the slums of the future, just to name a few will see them swept to oblivion by a Trump like result.

Gladys, you need to take the road of common sense, you need to consult with your community and listen to what they are saying, you need to heed Aboriginal Heritage, Colonial Heritage, and Unique Heritage and protect them by legislation, not sell them but lease them. That is the future for you, for the community and for New South Wales and Australia.

 

GSC- Great Sydney Con.

The Greater Sydney Commission set up by the Baird Government is made up of people who can use their power and influence to squash the residents of Sydney into submission. The worst thing is they are using our assets and taxes to do this. NSW is not a democracy but a dictatorship, run by people who have no interests in or knowledge of the Heritage of Sydney or Parramatta.

Let us look at the holdings of the Turnbull’s,  the couple reside in Sydney, with an additional property in Hunter Valley, an apartment in Canberra when they are not in The Lodge. They also own an apartment in New York City. The couple are independently wealthy. Mrs Turnbull is a figure head of the GSC, her task is to sell the government’s plan to sell our assets, build high rise glass boxes on every space, destroy as much of our heritage and our children’s legacy as they can, until our City have nothing left. Despite many requests for a meeting to discuss this topic, no answer is always forthcoming, tight deadlines for submissions, adds are placed on the second last page of the local papers and it is always done when they think we are distracted, like the Christmas Break for instance. Now let us analyse why this happens. Watch this video, a little long, but these plans were put in place years ago The Perfect Storm 

District Commissioner West Central Professor Ed Blakely. His Profile reads like this…..gsc-commissioner-ed-blakely-400x300

US and international urban policy, US domestic policy with emphasis on race, class and socioeconomic issues, global urban agendas on sustainability, global warming, development economics with particular background in South America, China, Japan, Europe, Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa.

Edward Blakely is Chair of the Future Cities Collaborative at the US Studies Centre and serves as a District Commissioner on the Greater Sydney Commission. He previously served for two years as Executive Director of the Office of Recovery and Development Administration, the “recovery czar” for New Orleans following the devastation of hurricane Katrina. The question, is what is his knowledge of the issues, needs and the heritage of the district he is serving.

Premier Mike Baird MP.

Baird attended The King’s School, Parramatta, and spent time living in the USA whilst his father served as head of the Australia trade commission in New York. Baird graduated with a Bachelor of Economics from the University of Sydney. Baird also studied at Regent College in Vancouver, Canada, initially intending to enter the Anglican ministry, but while there decided a career in investment banking and later politics. In 1999, he successfully sought preselection for the seat of Manly. Baird then returned to investment banking, working for the National Australia Bank for a time in London, before returning to Sydney to work for the HSBC Australia. But of course now Mr Baird has started the avalanche of destruction, he has resigned the Parliament.

gladys_portrait-webNow we are looking at Gladys Berejiklian as the new Premier who has promised us she will do everything that Mike Baird did but more, sales of the people’s assets, more infrastructure, privatisation of  Crown Land, and build more high rise for overseas investors.

Gladys has not mentioned her vision for Heritage and certainly does not know what Parramatta has, some tour guide should give her a days tour of Parramatta to see the potential “Tourism Dollars” if she is game to take on the current system of decision makers that Mr Baird has set in place.

Now, you ask what are these lot of people making decisions on our precious history and heritage, they are not interested in the subject or the people involved, they have not studied the subject or read stories, they do not or cannot tell the stories of the past, and has never explored or even visited the area they are in charge of, then what are they interested in and what is the common theme that these people are interested in? The answer!!!!!!!!!!!!!! is money.
