CBD strategy concerns

It has been revealed that the background technical studies related to the revised strategy was paid for by developers. As this is unusual Council has provided a comprehensive statement on the matter

(refer https://www.willoughby.nsw.gov.au/Council/News-and-media/Chatswood-CBD-Planning-and-Urban-Design-Strategy-2036).

Unfortunately, Council has not addressed some key issue.

Accordingly move that CWWPA write to Council requesting information as follows:

  • Did council select and instruct the consultants independently and at the end hand the bill over and the developers paid the bill no question asked?
  • Who were the Developers involved and how much did each pay?
  • Are the consultant involved part of an industry association which has an appropriate ethics code covering such situations
  • Did the developers have any influence over the management of the consultants
