Crescent Parklands development proposal update
A survey by Cumberland City Council has shown strong opposition to the Crescent Parklands development proposal.
The survey, initiated by Council, attracted 270 responses from residents living in Holroyd and surrounding areas. The message from residents was fairly clear with over 85% of respondents opposing the proposal and don't want this going ahead.
This huge development has not taken into account Council's Government-supported Local Strategic Planning Statement and it ignores the huge adverse traffic impacts in the Merrylands area, where it will not only affect locals, but all Sydneysiders travelling on the heavily congested Parramatta Road and Woodville Road.
The survey results showed that residents' main concerns included increased traffic, congestion and overcrowding. Existing infrastructure would also need to service a much larger population.
We will continue to advocate for our residents and have presented our survey results to the State Government.
