    Baird govt WestConnex acquisitions a disgrace

    The NSW Government’s compulsory acquisition process for WestConnex is a disaster for home owners throughout Sydney's Inner West. Many in St Peters, Alexandria, Haberfield and Ashfield are now compelled to take their cases to the Land and Environment Court in last ditch efforts to obtain fair compensation for the loss of their homes and the expenses of relocation.  Others throughout Glebe and Rozelle are bracing for the impending notifications from the RMS that they will lose their homes.   The recent SMH report on this unfair process highlighted the situation facing homeowners and despite Premier Baird admitting in June and on Sydney radio 2UE today, that he has some reservations about the way the RMS is handling WestConnex compulsory home acquisitions, he has failed to act to make the process more equitable.  Homeowners are reporting coercive, bullying tactics from the RMS and are being forced into the courts if they won’t accept below market rates for their homes and inadequate compensation.

    Inner West Council to maintain opposition to WestConnex

    Some good news for our community from the Inner West Council regarding WestConnex. The following item on WestConnex was passed at the 2nd meeting of the Inner West Council which was held on Tuesday July 5 at 7pm at the  Ashfield  Service Centre, 260 Liverpool Road, Ashfield.  The Administrator’s Minute (see full text below), states that the Inner West Council will formally adopt a position of continued opposition in the ‘strongest terms’ to the WestConnex project,  which is in line with the position of the previous three councils, Marrickville, Ashfield and Leichhardt which have been amalgamated.  The IWC has sought urgent legal advice concerning advice on prospects for a legal challenge to the WestConnex project across the whole LGA, including an injunction on the current demolition works in Haberfield and Ashfield.  It will also provide funding for a full-time community organiser to campaign against the WestConnex project and act as a go-between for community concerns.
