Traffic Impacts of Major Retail Development at Harold Park - Not too Late!
COMMUNITY RALLY: 5pm Sunday 6 April 2014, Chapman Road Bridge, Federal Park, The Crescent, Annandale
The proposed retail development at Harold Park includes hundreds of car spaces and an upgrade of roads and bridges through Annandale foreshore parkland to acces them. This traffic, along with that generated by the large residential development at Harold Park will add to the congestion on the Crescent and impact public transport along the route, which also needs to be increased to meet the obvious increase there will be in demand from the residents of the new development.
At their April 7 meeting, the Sydney City Council may refuse the DA or approve it with ineffective conditions of consent (see alternative motion here). The Council meeting to consider the DA is open and the public can attend. It is item "9.9 Development Application: 10 Maxwell Road Forest Lodge – Tram Sheds on the Agenda", but items which have drawn a large public attendance are brought forward.
Express your concern with the proposal by turning up at the Meeting:

Rally to save Federal Park from Road Upgrade
The proposed inclusion of 145 car spaces to service the Shopping Mall in the TramSheds requires the upgrade of the Bridge over Johnston's Creek and the road through Federal Park, Annandale does not conform with the Objectives of the Harold Park DCP. The existing residential community rallied in Federal Park to demonstrate their concern about the impact of the proposed road upgrade on their parkland.
A jogger, from Newtown, on his way home from the Bay Run expressed his concern about the impact of the road on his evening run.
