Planning announcement on Sydenham to Bankstown corridor affects Marrickville
NSW Department of Planning has announced a new planning approach for the Sydenham to Bankstown Corridor. The information from Planning says that they will work with Councils to develop a high level strategy, which will inform Council’s future changes to planning controls. See Planning’s information here.
Save Marrickville is not yet clear what this means for our area and will request a meeting with the Minister for Planning’s office to get more detail. Last year the government agreed to return planning along the corridor to Councils. We need to know how this new approach affects Council’s control of planning and its current work with the community to produce a new Local Environment Plan (LEP), and implications for the level of future development in Marrickville.
We have also received a media release on this announcement from our local MP Jo Haylen and the Mayor of Inner West Council. Read it here.
