Keeping the Greater Sydney Commission honest about population and density

The following article publishes an email sent by Tony Recsei, President of Save our Suburbs NSW, to SOS members and friends. Dated Thursday, 26 May 2016, it is a report on his attendance at a luncheon organised by the Greater Sydney Commission (GSC) in Paramatta. The GSC is a growth lobby tool. Here Recsei points out that the 30 minute city does not exist as planners describe it and suggests that the Commission should investigate low density cities where the cost of housing is also low and find out what they are doing right, instead of continuing to visit high density cities. See the SOS NSW blogspot here.

Meeting today, Saturday 8 November: How Big For Sydney

At 2pm at the Glebe Town Hall, listen to guest speakers Jack Mundey, Jill Green of STEP, Tony Recsei of Save Our Suburbs & William Bourke of the Sustainable Population Party. They will ask:

  • What are the risks associated with adding another 3.5 million people to Sydney?
  • Why are sprawl and high density presented as the only options?
  • Are extreme levels of housing unaffordability placing an unfair burden on the City's young?
  • What will be the impacts upon our surrounding native flora and fauna? ...

Come along and ask your own questions.
