- Warringah Council & NSW Planning Minister
Narraweena is a residential suburb on Sydney’s beautiful northern beaches. ‘Narraweena’ is the aboriginal word for ‘a quiet place on the hill’. But all that will change if Warringah Council’s Draft Housing Strategy (June 2011) goes ahead. Council wants to add 3600 new residences to this quiet suburban village, mainly in 3 and 4 storey apartment blocks.
There is no plan to provide any new shops, transport, schools or infrastructure to accommodate these 10000+ new residents. Save Narraweena Action Group was formed to lobby the State Government (Brad Hazzard Minister for Planning) and Warringah Council both directly and through the media to make sure this draft plan is rejected.
We, the undersigned residents of Narraweena and Warringah, object strenuously to the Draft Housing Plan made public by Warringah Council in 24 May 2011.
We call on Warringah Council to reject this plan prepared by Council staff and suspend work on future housing directions until the new NSW Liberal Government abolishes the existing mandatory housing targets as promised publicly.
We also call on Brad Hazzard, as the new NSW Minister for Planning, to honour his party’s election commitments to abolish these mandatory housing targets and direct Council to suspend its disastrous planning initiatives until the new government’s revised housing strategy is made law.
The Save Narraweena from 3 & 4 Storey Development petition to Warringah Council & NSW Planning Minister was written by Nathan Sweeny and is in the category City & Town Planning at GoPetition.
