Sydney Modern

Monday 19 June 2017

The government committed $244 million to the Sydney Modern extension to the Art Gallery of NSW enabling the project to proceed. Plans have changed since my last briefing in 2015 when I raised concerns about loss of parkland. It is not clear whether all issues have been addressed and I will seek a further briefing. The gallery needs new exhibition space, has engaged world-renowned architects and I support the project, however it is vital that plans protect much needed inner city green open space.

Information HERE. Final plans should go on exhibition later this year on the planning department’s website, HERE.
