STOP Georges River Council’s 'Secret' plan

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!


On 22 April 2020 in the midst of the pandemic lockdown and without any prior warning or consultation, six local residents who border the Peter Low Reserve in Monaro Avenue Kingsgrove received a letter from Georges River Council advising that their homes would be rezoned so that it could acquire them and knock them down to provide easier access to and expand the reserve. There was no consultation about the merits of this with any of the local community!!
 
The deadline for  response is 15 May 2020. This is despite the particularly difficult COVID-19 environment.
 
The six blocks are home to these residents.  Some are from non-English speaking backgrounds who did not understand the bureaucratic letter. For some this has been their family home for nearly 50 years; others have settled here as their ‘forever’ home; some have made extensive modifications to accommodate family members with a disability. 
Does this covert Council action sound fair to you? To us it sounds like some crazy out-take from that classic Australian movie “The Castle”
 
Please help us STOP THIS REZONING and give Council a message -- in the words of Darryl Kerrigan from “the Castle” –“Tell them they’re dreaming” by signing the petition:
