Statement about Barangaroo

I welcome the NSW Government's decision to review the Barangaroo project, and Planning Minister Hazzard's decision to appoint an independent chairman to conduct the review.

Barangaroo provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create new foreshore parks and walkways that integrate with the CBD and provide needed office accommodation, housing, shops and cultural venues.

It is Sydney's opportunity to lead the world in design excellence and in creating a sustainable, low carbon community.

The City of Sydney will be happy to work with the new chairman as part of the review and will provide any material the inquiry needs, including making City resources available for the independent chairman.
