A former NSW Premier is calling on the Federal Government to provide funding to assist with the cost of the state providing infrastructure.
The call is predicated on the assertion that many of the infrastructure demands Sydney faces are are a result in the very large increase in population for which we are expected to cater.
Largely, this population increase is a result of the Federal government’s immigration policy and a lack of a population strategy.
Our current NSW Premier last year called for Sydney to ‘be given breather’ after years of rapid growth.
Whilst population growth may benefit the economy of the country, it comes at a cost to local communities who are expected to accommodate the growth.
Immigration to Sydney could be growing from 40,000 p.a to 100,000 p.a.
This issue needs to be addressed.
This issue will be considered at our next meeting.
