Getting organised — who to tell what you think

How to get organised, who to tell what you think

The Committee for North Sydney is appointed by the Association for the Committee for North Sydney. Members of the Committee are eminent architects, urban designers, planners and community leaders who don’t want to see yet more missed opportunities for the city centre, and who intend to build a sense of excitement around the potential of one of Australia’s largest CBDs — as a place for people.

There are plenty of ways to get involved and/or show your support (see the other pages) — here are three of them.

The Precinct Committees surrounding the city centre are well organised and active. The Edward, Lavender Bay, Union, Waverton and Wollstonecraft Precinct Committees collectively initiated the formation of the Committee for North Sydney.

Precincts west of the Gore Hill Freeway – the CBD, Hayberry, Holtermann and Stanton Precinct Committees – need your support.

Others: Council’s Community Engagement Coordinator 9936 8100,

The Greenwich Community Association is a broad-based association still very active after 74 years. Given the current addiction of state and local governments to short-term, opportunistic urban development at a preposterous scale, the GCA has many fights on its hands in defending the community.

Priority Precinct Residents Group

“Residents from Postcode 2065 and surrounding areas are coming together to oppose the OVERDEVELOPMENT of St Leonards/Crows Nest Planned Precinct — and the Crows Nest Metro Station, both of which have devastating impacts on the communities of Wollstonecraft, Greenwich and Naremburn as well as Crows Nest and St Leonards… North Sydney Council is currently meeting and exceeding the State mandated residential targets and is on track to meet the new targets set by the Greater Sydney Commission. There is no need for this massive overdevelopment nor is the necessary local infrastructure (schools, open space, sports facilities, community facilities) sufficient to manage any increase in population arising from additional residential and commercial development.”
