Blenheim Park

A once in a generation decision by Council to expand open space at Blenheim Park has been thwarted by the Baird Government. 

Mike Baird had the option of going with the Council model for Blenheim Park that would have seen 2,000 square metres added to the parkland for use by the community, but instead he chose to side with the developer who proposes a 16-storey residential tower comprising of 120 dwellings.

Let me repeat that.

Of the two options available, more open space or 16-storey residential, the Baird Government chose to side with the developer. 

The developer's proposal will now go to the Joint Regional Planning Panel for review. This process allows for public input, and I will attend on behalf of the community.

In the meantime, please sign my petition below. It's important that we share this news far and wide to help protect our parks and open space un-necessary development.

    As someone who grew up in North Ryde I always appreciated the green open spaces. I still use the dog park and play area with my children whenever I go back to my old home area. The dog park is used daily by my school friends elderly parents and it is the only fully fenced dog park in the eastern half of Sydney and better than anything in the Eastern Suburbs.

    Please don’t destroy our parks, we need them because of so many high rise buildings/units being built in the area!
