Say NO to Sydenham - Bankstown rail conversion! Rally 17 Feb 18

Join us and the Sydenham to Bankstown Alliance at 2pm Sat 17 Feb, 2018. Meet at the Archibald fountain, Hyde Park north and march to Martin Place.

"Residents along the rail corridor are being asked to go through five years of delay and disruption to be provided with a rail service that they already have. The emphasis should be on new rail - not conversions." Peter Olive, spokesperson Sydenham to Bankstown Alliance

"The Parramatta Metro should be constructed instead of the Bankstown line metro conversion." Dr Dick Day, retired senior manager of Sydney's rail system.


Contact your politicians

Dear Save Marrickville/ Marrickville residents

As part of a campaign to stop the overdevelopment of Marrickville and other parts of Sydney, please send the following message by email, mail or phone one or more of key people we have identified. They are three key Liberal MPs, the Planning Minister and Premier, see their contact details after the drafted message. 
Thanks very much for doing your bit.

Save Marrickville Working Group  



I ask the NSW government to return control of local planning decisions to our local governments, which have greater understanding of local communities and their needs than the NSW Department of Planning.

The residents of Sydney want good planning for our city’s future, and to develop the best possible city and neighbourhoods for ourselves and future generations. This will not happen while the Berejiklian government pushes overdevelopment and high rise, where it dramatically changes whole suburbs and does not plan for schools, parks, traffic or parking. We are specifically concerned about the NSW Priority Precincts and Growth Areas strategy that is being rammed though by the NSW government.

We are hoping that our Minister for Planning and Premier will change the way that planning is done in Sydney, which at the moment helps developers but not the people who live here.

Can you please talk to your state government colleagues about this. Thank you.
