Our initial call to the community for feedback, May 2019:
Please email us any comments or concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm, Saturday 11th May. Save Marrickville will be meeting with Mirvac and the landowners to provide community feedback.
Save Marrickville invites you to meet the candidates in the NSW election and hear their thoughts on planning and development in our local area. In attendance will be our sitting member, Jo Haylen (Labor), Tom Raue, the candidate for the Greens and Teresa Romanovsky, the candidate for the Animal Justice Party. We have also invited the candidate for the Liberal Party, Leo Wei, but he is yet to confirm whether he will attend.
DATE: Wednesday 13th March
TIME: 7pm to 8pm
VENUE: Marrickville Golf Club, Wharf Rd, Marrickville
We hope to see you on the night.
It's no surprise that most people (99 out of 100) who completed our survey are opposed to high rise development.
But which new developments are liked, makes interesting reading.
We had heaps of visitors to our stall at Marrickville Festival on 21 October 2018! Thank you to the people who filled in the survey about what they want for Marrickville, and to those that dropped by to thank Save Marrickville for our work so far.
Visiting politicians were Linda Burney MP, Hon Anthony Albanese MP, Jenny Leong MP and Matt from Jo Haylen's office. Thanks to Inner West Council for hosting us and to the councillors who stopped for a chat.
Report from Mirvac's open day
If you were unable to attend Mirvac's information session on Saturday 22 September at Carrington Road, listen to our spokesperson, Kelsie Dadd discuss the experience here.
Kelsie was interviewed on Radio Skid Row by Colin Hesse, Greens councillor Marrickville Ward.
At the open day, Save Marrickville member Paul Mortimer handed Dominic Hunt from Mirvac a copy of our community survey summary on the Carrington Road Development. Check it out yourself here.
The is an email that that was sent on 4 September 2018 to supporters that signed on via our website. Please share your email address if you want to know what we know. We only email with real news and not very often.
After our email Mirvac announced they are holding at public drop-in information session on Saturday 22 September 2018 from 10am to 2pm. This is to be held at 16 Carrington Rd, Marrickville. It should be noted that Mirvac does not have a new proposal, so no new plans will be displayed at this info session.

Over 500 residents and friends attended the Save Marrickville rally on 24 February and we thank every one of you. Our work is just beginning and we are grateful for your support. We set off from Marrickville Town Hall and with guidance from Marrickville police, walked up the pavement to the Mirvac office where we delivered a copy of the Save Marrickville's group submission to the rezoning plan. Their shop/office was closed for the day.
Onward to Alex Trevallion Plaza for speeches from Save Marrickville spokeswoman Kelsie Dadd, Federal MP Linda Burney, Inner West Mayor Darcy Byrne and Greens Councillor Colin Hesse.
