Last night (9 March) Inner West Council unanimously passed a resolution in support of our call for the Minister for Water to review Sydney Water’s proposed location for its Odour Control Unit. See the InnerWest Council motion.
Petition signatures passed 3,500 this morning, 3 March.
Planning Minister Stokes has issued a draft SEPP with five principles to guide planning of public places – the OCU breaches 4 of them and probably 5 if no. 5 could be understood. For more see 210307 SEPP and OCU v3
This follows the beginning of our handout campaign at local railway stations – more volunteers needed!
We have begun a rolling program of flyer handouts at various locations, following on from our letter boxing efforts. Total signatures passed 3,200 and a new press release was issued: OCUMedia release 210215.
Here’s a copy of the OCU DL FLYER
The petition launched on Jan 20 has moved steadily past 3,000 today. This is a good result, but we need an overwhelming one, so let’s keep at it.
Signatures at 2,600 on 2/2/21, as more organisations alert their members. Thanks this time to National Parks Association of NSW.
