A bid to have lower car parking requirements in Frasers Edmondson Park South Concept Plan has attracted the ire of two local members of parliament.
Federal Member for Werriwa Anne Stanley and the State Member for Macquarie Fields Anoulack Chanthivong have hit out at the amendments sought.
The amendments, lodged with the NSW Department of Planning on April
17, propose a reduction in the number of car parking spaces required for new
The two Labor MPs say residents and commuters already experience an unacceptable parking situation at Edmondson Park and these changes, if approved, will mean more cars looking for parking.
“I am disappointed that these changes have even been considered,’’ says Ms Stanley.
“The only people who will benefit from these changes are the developers.’’
Mr Chanthivong said the proposed changes were unfair and would
exacerbate the existing parking crisis around Edmondson Park station.
“Not only will this development see an explosion in density and high rises, it will squeeze people in with inadequate infrastructure and poor planning,’’ he said.
“Edmondson Park is already feeling the strain of woefully inadequate parking.
“A bad dream is set to become a living nightmare.
“The Liberals continue to put developers before people, and I won’t
give up my campaign to Stop the Squeeze.”
The NSW Department of Planning and Environment will make a determination on the proposed amendments. Submissions close on May 1 and residents are encouraged to submit feedback on the proposal online via https://bit.ly/2URd53R
