Alienation of Centennial and Moore Park open space have flared again as an issue with media revelations that Premier Mike Baird is considering giving into an audacious attempt by the SSG to annex adjacent Moore Park land for a new stadium.
Randwick Greens Councillor Murray Matson says the idea will be the Governments third recent acceptance of an erosion of Centennial and Moore Park open space. He said today,
“By even considering this politically hot potato the State Government is only reinforcing the growing public perception that it is policy challenged on open space issues. Premier Mike Baird needs to move decisively to stop the SSG’s attempted land grab in the Kippax Lake area of Moore Park. This will be Park land debacle number three following the Liberal Government’s home goals on the Alison Road light rail realignment and the Tibby Cotter walkway over Anzac Parade.”
