Council again unanimously calls for rethink

The North Sydney Council has again called for a halt in Sydney Metro’s unconstrained rush to lock in high-rise towers over its stations in North Sydney city centre and Crows Nest.

At its meeting on 30 July, the Council considered a staff report on Sydney Metro’s proposals for towers above the Crows Nest metro station. The report pointed out many concerns with the proposal.

The Council strengthened the conclusions of the report, and unanimously resolved:

THAT Council urgently write to the Ministers for Transport and Planning and the Premier seeking an urgent pause to this process and that Sydney Metro be directed to prepare a Masterplan for the site in collaboration with Council and the community in order to guide future development above the Metro station and to ensure the provision of community benefits on the site.

The Council’s full resolution can be read here.

The Mosman Daily reported on the Council’s decision on 9 August 2018. The article by Matt Taylor is here.

Please send your own message to the Premier, the Ministers and Sydney Metro using this contact list.

And you can commend the councillors that voted for the resolution — that’s all of those present on the night — using the same contact list.
