The NSW Government's redevelopment of the 80-hectare Bays Precinct, stretching from Blackwattle Bay to the White Bay Power Station, will be one of the most significant urban renewal projects in Sydney.
UrbanGrowth NSW is the organisation in charge of this project, and this Sunday, 12 April, they are opening land that is usually inaccessible to the public.
This is chance for you to see first-hand what a unique opportunity the Bays Precinct offers.
The former Treasurer, now Transport Minister, Andrew Constance revealed last year that the Government was eager to build as many as 16,000 new homes within the Bays Precinct. This is totally inappropriate.
We must ensure that this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity delivers sustainable housing development, access to our harbour, public open space, active transport and the facilities a growing community needs including schools and affordable housing.
I encourage you to take the opportunity to explore the Bays Precinct for yourself.
Additional public transport services will be available on the day including light rail services, free ferries from King Street Wharf to Glebe Island and shuttle buses around The Bays Precinct.
