My own personal submission as follows: “I object to the proposal. It runs counter to the objectives of the State Plan, and to good sense. At a time when we should be moving jobs closer to people, this proposal does the opposite. It takes jobs from Western Sydney, where they are needed, and it moves them into a part of Sydney which already struggling with the load of residents and commuters that it is expected to carry. There is a sense that anywhere close to station has good transport links. This is wrong. Many stations, and Redfern is no exception, are over capacity, and with little expectation of an upgrade in the near future. Waterloo Station will not help – it will only carry traffic from a single line, and it will not open soon. We need to develop Western Sydney, and this proposal does the opposite.”
