Crows Nest ‘over-station-development’ — Residents say it’s over-development

There was standing room only when 90 residents met to consider the Sydney Metro Over Station Development at Crows Nest.

Sydney Metro is seeking feedback on its chosen development — it somehow thinks of this as ‘Early Community Engagement’.

Residents voted unanimously against the inclusion of two 27 storey apartment blocks and against the exclusion of public amenity on the site above the station.

Wollstonecraft Precinct Chair John Hancox advised the meeting that feedback will be lodged by the closing date of 29 July, and urged those present to write to Sydney Metro. He said, ‘The community is expecting that Sydney Metro will take note and modify its proposal before lodging an EIS.’

  1. I am a St Leonards resident living about 200 metres from the proposed metro station and am very concerned about the inappropriate development and the role of the State government as a property developer.

    No-one in my building received notice of the recent meetings and i only became aware of them when a friend who lives in Crows Nest showed me the notice she had received.

    Most people I have spoken to in St Leonards, like me, had no notification he “consultation” meetings.

    There is a distinct feel of the Sydney Metro going through the motions of consultation in a token manner in relation to a predetermined decision.

    Please let me know what I can constructively do to make my opposition known.
