SIGN UP TO SAVE WATERLOO
April 2019: NSW has a new Planning minister, Rob Stokes. Now is the time to get on his new agenda and demand a review of the proposed plans for unprecedented density in Waterloo that would be more than Green Square in this heritage area.
What the Government is planning in Waterloo is unprecedented for Australia and the density of Hong Kong. They want to increase the number of homes by a staggering 388 per cent, from 2,012 to 6,800 in approximately 17 tall towers, up to 40 storeys in height. Next door, the Metro Quarter development will add another 700 apartments in three towers up to 29 storeys in height.
We need Rob Stokes to consider the City of Sydney’s alternative plan for the area that will:
- still add 5300 homes without the unprecedented proposed by the last planning minister
- retain and refurbish the Matavai and Turanga towers rather than raize them and replace with more of the same height.
- restrict height of new buildings to 4-13 storeys, with most between four and nine storeys in height rather than bulk above new metro station of 30-40 storeys
- put community and the area’s future at the centre of the planning
EMAIL email@example.com to call for an urgent review of the state government’s approach to the development including returning the area to the City of Sydney for delivery.
