RALLY Saturday 24 February 2018
Make a stand at Marrickville Town Hall | 12pm Saturday 24 February 2018
March together down Marrickville Road past Mirvac then rally at the Alex Trevallion Plaza - outside the Post Office.
NSW State Government’s rezoning of Marrickville to a Priority Precinct will mean the mass destruction of heritage streets replaced with high density, high rise towers up to 35 storeys.
* Eight storey apartment blocks next to your home
* Destruction of Marrickville’s character
* More than 10,000 extra residents
* Almost NO Affordable Housing
* NO new schools or parks
* Road and railways grid-locked
* Abolishing industrial land and 1800 local jobs that exist NOW.
There is still time to change this!
Marrickville has NOT yet been REZONED

Linda Burney MP: Federal Labor Member for Barton
Linda supports our stand against the Priority Precincts and the one size fits all approach to over development for Marrickville.
Darcy Byrne: Mayor Inner West Council
“One of my New Year’s resolutions is that we will defeat the absurd proposal for 35 storey high rise at Carrington Road.”
Colin Hesse: Local Greens member for Marrickville Ward
Opposes the rezoning of Carrington Rd “1800 jobs lost from bespoke manufacturing, services and cultural activity … the absence of any new schools and meaningful public open space.”
