Traffic Impacts of Major Retail Development at Harold Park - Not too Late!

The proposed retail development at Harold Park includes hundreds of car spaces and an upgrade of roads and bridges through Annandale foreshore parkland to acces them. This traffic, along with that generated by the large residential development at Harold Park will add to the congestion on the Crescent and impact public transport along the route, which also needs to be increased to meet the obvious increase there will be in demand from the residents of the new development.

At their April 7 meeting, the Sydney City Council may refuse the DA or approve it with ineffective conditions of consent (see alternative motion here). The Council meeting to consider the DA is open and the public can attend. It is item "9.9 Development Application: 10 Maxwell Road Forest Lodge – Tram Sheds on the Agenda", but items which have drawn a large public attendance are brought forward.

Express your concern with the proposal by turning up at the Meeting:
5pm Monday 7 April 2014
Council Chamber, Sydney Town Hall, George Street Sydney
Agenda and Papers (including Report of the Planning and Development Committee - 1 April 2014)
