Blackwattle Marina

Monday 5 February 2018

The government has refused to rule out keeping the Blackwattle Bay Marina at Bank Street once the Sydney Fish Market redevelopment is complete in “answers” to my questions in Parliament. Our protests against turning this prime waterfront site into a backend storage facility for charter boats have repeatedly been met with statements from UrbanGrowth that the plan is “only for 10 years”, however the government’s responses carefully avoid long term commitments. Promises from successive governments to turn this area into a much needed recreational destination should be honoured, now and in the long term.

I’ve made a number of submissions and recently asked the Premier to withdraw the UrbanGrowth proposal. My letter to the Premier: HERE. The responses to my questions in Parliament just deflect responsibility to UrbanGrowth: HEREHERE and HERE.
