Extra votes for business owners

ARAG has sent a letter to the premier in objection to legislation proposed by Shooters and Fishers Party that seeks to give more votes to people who own businesses than to other people.  (If you wish to send your own objection, we have uploaded a template for a draft objection letter that may be posted or submitted online.)

Central to Eveleigh Corridor to be discussed at our August Meeting

The ARAG meeting to be held on Wednesday the 13th, at the usual time and place of 7PM at Alexandria Town Hall, will be on the proposed redevelopment of the ‘Central to Eveleigh Corridor’ – basically, everything along the railway lines from Goulburn Street car park in the CBD to Macdonaldtown rail station, including Central and Redfern stations, the Australian Technology Park, and Eveleigh Rail Yards.

This is an opportunity to have your say on the impact of the concept plan on: Australian Technology Park (ATP), Sustainability, Connections & Transport, Heritage & Culture, Public Spaces & Social Facilities, and Housing and Employment.
