CAAN Photo: a townhouse development 2018 where there was 1 cottage; 2 rows of development. Picture an even more intensive development of 10 terraces for a 600M2 lot as per the Berejiklian Govt proposed Medium-Density Housing Code!
WILL A VOTE FOR SCOMO GOVT EMPOWER THE BEREJIKLIAN MEDIUM DENSITY HOUSING CODE?
DO you want to let Gladys finish the job? To utterly destroy where you live?
THE original Spin (2012) was that there was a need for high-rise at or near railway stations to accommodate the population growth …
BUT they didn’t say where from!
HOWEVER, both NSW INC & their Developer Mates … their appetite whet at the prospect of more … what is promoted as ‘the MISSING MIDDLE’ … with as many as 10 terraces on a 600M2 lot!
AND the newly appointed Planning Minister Rob Stokes recently said he was “not wedded” to any particular law or policy.
But Sydney’s local councils had to plan for medium density or the State Government would intervene, he said.
“They should not read that as code for ‘I’m happy for them not to plan for the future’,” Mr Stokes told the Financial Review.
“I expect them to plan for the future. The best way to accommodate is for councils to plan themselves in Local Environment Plans.
The state only seeks to get involved in councils which aren’t doing that effectively.”
NICE … isn’t it?
WHO is NSW INC and the Planning Minister working for?
The developer lobby, The Property Council of Australia (the PCA) … Scomo wrote their policy before he entered politics!
HENCE … on the appointment of Scomo as PM … the PCA seized control of Australia …
THIS is what the PCA had to say about the Medium Density Code for terraces for the overseas buyer market …
“The code is a good policy that has been dragged down by the politics of planning,” said the Property Council of Australia’s acting NSW executive director William Power.
“The code would mean that MEDIUM-DENSITY housing, essentially TERRACES, could be built more easily and in the right places across Sydney – it should be reintroduced and will be by JULY this year in line with updated planning documents from local councils.”
GET IT? If the Federal LNP returns on 18 May … with their policies allowing:
-100% sell-off of ‘new homes’ to foreign buyers (FIRB Ruling)
–no Anti-Money Laundering Legislation for the Real Estate Gatekeepers (second tranche)
.the real estate sector exempted by Scomo Govt as recently as October 2018
IT WILL BE OPEN SLATHER FOR GLADYS & NSW INC TO DEMOLISH OUR SYDNEY TOWN

CAAN Photo: For 12 months or more the street has been packed out with trucks; demolition and waste removal and the road and footpath excavated for new drains etc; dust and noise; much inconvenience for the community who have no say with NSW Planning Law changes! WHAT A MESS!
CAAN Photo: Access for pedestrians has been removed for months on end;. pedestrians having to find their way along the road.
CAAN Photo: Between the 2 rows of development; the land was cleared of all vegetation and what appear to be garden plots concreted out.
