The Powerhouse is a much loved museum and has attracted a strong community campaign to save it. Keeping parts of the collection in a design and fashion museum on the existing site and a new theatre is a welcome retention of cultural assets in Ultimo but community concern remains about how the government will fund the costly relocation of artefacts and what this means for planned sale and redevelopment of part of the Ultimo site. We still haven’t seen the full business case and I am concerned that it will require overdevelopment of part of this public site. A ’summary’ of the business case is HERE.
