More than 86,000 people have already signed the online petition against NSW Government plans to spend $2.3 billion to knock down and rebuild the Olympic Stadium and Sydney Football Stadium. I oppose the rebuild which has little public benefit and am also concerned that there will be no public open planning process for the redevelopment because the SCG has a broad exemption from planning laws. I have asked the Premier to require an Environmental Impact Assessment or Development Application for the rebuild. Unfortunately the government and opposition blocked my 2016 bill to remove these exemptions. Support the campaign HERE.
