To the Chair, 

The Department of Planning’s expert recommendation to the Independent Planning Commission to reject the Star Casino’s proposed luxury apartment and hotel tower reflects the concerns of our community.

We call on you to uphold the Department’s recommendation and the integrity of the state’s planning system. 

 

The Department of Planning has recommended that the Independent Planning Commission (IPC) reject The Star Casino’s proposal for a 237-meter high luxury apartment and hotel tower in Pyrmont.

This is a win for the community, but it is now under threat.

The proposed tower is a whopping 877 per cent higher than the current height controls on the casino site, and will have significant impacts on surrounding areas, including overshadowing public spaces.

It is also a scandalous abuse of the planning system, submitted through a discredited and defunct piece of legislation designed to railroad the concerns of the community.

But the Daily Telegraph is now running a campaign to pressure the IPC to allow the tower to be built.

This flies in the face of community opposition to the proposal, and is an attack on the integrity of the planning system.

Will you join the campaign and call on the IPC to uphold the Department’s expert opinion?
