The Central Sydney Planning Committee and the Council of the City of Sydney have agreed to zoning proposals for Harold Park. The outcome, confirmed at a meeting of full Council on Monday, 26 July 2010, was not all that we would have wished for, but far more favourable than might have been the case if proposals put forward by the current owner, the NSW Harness Racing Club, had been accepted. The next move will by up to the Club which can accept the City’s decision or ask the Minister for Planning to intervene on its behalf.   Read more »

Harold Park: D-Day tomorrow (Monday, 19 July)

Harold Park: D-Day tomorrow (Monday, 19 July)
Posted on 18th July 2010

The proposed draft planning controls for Harold Park will go before City of Sydney Planning Committee on Monday (July 19) and to the Central Sydney Planning Committee (CSPC) on Wednesday. There is a very real possibility that the controls will not be approved and that control of the planning for Harold Park will be referred to the Minister for Planning. This is an outcome we have been very keen to avoid as it effectively cuts the community out of the process. Members are encouraged to strongly express their views on the future development of Harold Park to both the City and the State Government, and preserve community input into the planning of this very important site.  Read more »
