The green light announcement for the release of the Bayside West Plan has more than half the area as being subject to further investigation, says the Urban Taskforce.
“The media release from Planning Minister Anthony Roberts says the green light has been given to land use planning for the Arncliffe, Banksia and Cooks Cove Precincts but more than half the area is subject to further investigation,” says Urban Taskforce CEO, Chris Johnson. “The announcement stated that the ‘finalisation of the Bayside West Plan was a big step forward’ but the map within the Plan clearly indicates that all of Cooks Cove and Arncliffe West are ‘subject to further investigation.’”
“There are a number of illustrations linked to the media release but these only show bicycle paths and parks with no images of actual buildings. It seems in a pre-election environment that announcements are mainly focussing on open space, walkways and cycleways. A Green Plan will guide planning and the design of open space.”
“The areas close to the railway stations at Banksia and Arncliffe do have significant density with expanded retail centres and apartment dwellings.”
“The Urban Taskforce looks forward to more detail planning and rezoning across the whole of the Bayside West Precinct including the large areas marked as being subject to further investigation.”
