Council Officers have prepared a submission to the State Governments proposed Metro City and South West. As part of their process they consulted with the the Chatswood West Ward and Artarmon Progress Associations.
The main areas of concern include the closure of Nelson Street, construction and operational noise, construction traffic, visual amenity and impacts on heritage items. Council‟s submission highlights these concerns and suggests that detailed mitigation measures be reviewed and implemented. The submission also raises concerns about the adequacy of the current community consultation process. It is requested that a Community Consultative Committee be formed to ensure that residents who are directly impacted are consulted throughout the project.
A summary of Council’s proposed submission follows:
