Last week the sports minister used drunken behaviour of some Sydney 7s event patrons as an excuse to again push for a new SCG stadium on Moore Park. I joined Lord Mayor Clover Moore and the members for Newtown and Heffron to condemn the proposal and the following day the Premier retracted. Our very prompt media conference at Kippax Lake and media release showed there would be strong opposition, media release available HERE.
The SCG clearly still wants to build on Moore Park and there are some in government willing to hand over this much needed green public open space for development. We must continue to be vigilant and I encourage you to join the new resident action group formed specifically to save Moore Park at www.facebook.com/SavingMoorePark and www.savingmoorepark.com.
