The long running struggle by Randwick Greens Councillors to secure the future of the Laperouse Chinese Market Gardens for its traditional agricultural purposes resumes next week.
Greens Councillor Murray Matson will put a motion to Randwick City Councillors in response to complaints from residents that there has been illegal dumping on a currently un-used lot on the site plus a spread of noxious weeds such as bitou bush, castor oil plant and pampas grass.
(UPDATE: NOTE THE WORDING OF THE FOLLOWING MOTION HAS BEEN UPDATED FROM THE ORIGINAL PUBLISHED VERSION)
His motion will read as follows.
1. notes with concern, reports from local residents of illegal dumping and noxious weed coverage on the heritage and agricultural land of the Chinese Market Gardens Site, Lot 1079, and investigate the complaints with a report back to Councillors; and
2. calls on the State Government to return Lot 1079, currently under the management of the Botany Cemetery Trust, to market garden use consistent with RU4 Land Use Zoning.
