Protect Moore Park
18 March 2015
I strongly oppose rumoured plans to hand Moore Park to the Sydney Cricket and Sports Ground Trust (SCG), and will oppose any further loss of parkland in Parliament if re-elected. I’ve called on the government and opposition to rule out any deal. Fresh rumours surfaced that Moore Park will be handed to the SCG for a stadium on Moore Park east and car parking on Moore Park west HERE.
This is consistent with media reports that the government wants an indoor tennis stadium in Sydney and has identified Moore Park as a possible site. Residents fear the reason for the Tibby Cotter Bridge over Anzac Parade is for patrons to get between the stadia and car parking at Moore Park west. My media release is HERE.
