Residents of Glebe, Forest Lodge and Annandale are today urgently delivering thousands of leaflets against Mirvac’s plans for a major supermarket at Harold Park, which they say will generate excessive traffic and create parking chaos.
Greens MP Jamie Parker is hosting a public meeting on the development:
When: 6:30-7:30pm Monday 19 August 2013
Where: Glebe Town Hall, Old Council Chambers (Ground Floor) – 160 St Johns Rd
RSVP: 9660 7586 or Jamie.Parker@parliament.nsw.gov.au
“A major supermarket open every day from 6am-midnight is unnecessary and will generate traffic and parking problems due to people travelling from surrounding suburbs.
“A more appropriate proposal would involve a smaller supermarket designed predominantly to serve local residents.
“The proposed roadway connecting the residential area to the Tramsheds is unneeded and unsafe and will reduce the park area, cause pollution and impact on wildlife in the park.
“The developer’s plans ignore the need for local child care and instead include a massive and unnecessary supermarket which will ruin the community feel of our area.
“I will continue to fight for appropriate development and the rights of residents to have a say in planning,” Mr Parker said.
Submissions on the development close on Wednesday 21 August.
