July Meeting Agenda Item 1


Urban Activation Precinct (UAP) is back as Anzac Parade Priority Precinct.

Dear Residents,

The first item on the agenda for tonight's meeting is an important one.  You will recall that Urban Activation Precinct (UAP) was rejected outright by the community when it was proposed in March 2013 by the then O'Farrell government.  The Berejiklian government is now bringing it back under a new a different name, as Anzac Corridor Priority Precinct.

UAP was the government's plan to provide 30,000 homes near Sydney's main transport developments.  When that plan was dealt a blow, then came Light Rail.  Now it appears that as the Light Rail plan is turning out not to be what it was claimed, the government is pushing for UAP yet again under a different name.

Anzac Corridor Priority Precinct is part of the government's $3 billion promise for infrastructure funding to get councils to approve rezoning to allow for 20 storey high rise along the corridor.

The proposed Priority Precinct has well and truly come into La Perouse Precinct area: extending to Bunnerong Road north of Little Bay Road to the west of Anzac Parade, and to the cost north of Gubbuteh Road on the east size, according to the latest fact sheet published by Planning NSW.  This coupled with the proposed La Perouse Kurnell Ferry does not appear to be good news for local residents.

The Priority Precinct proposal is a return to the Urban Activation Precinct that was shelved in 2013 after a strong community campaign.  It takes control off local councils when it comes to planning decisions and would result in massive high rise in our area.  A revival of the campaign appears to be the only way to send a strong message to the government to stop high rise development at our doorstep. 

At the meeting, we hope to discuss on how we should make our views heard bearing in mind that while we had Council support the last time, it is not clear we will have the same level of support this time given recent decisions because the (dominant) Liberal elements in our Council will invariably support state government initiatives.

Please also note that if we have our usual meet the candidates forum next month, this will be the last meeting for our councillors, in particular Cr Robert Belleli.  He said he will try to make it tonight (family commitments holding him back from confirming) to say his goodbye as Councillor.

It's is going to be a cold winter's night, but I will be there early to turn the air conditioner on for a warm discussion tonight.

Hope to see you all tonight.

Kind regards,

Jayasooriah
Chairperson
