CSELR issues – Greens Councillor Philipa Veitch continues to call for relief for Doncaster Avenue residents – 26th November 2018


The rescission motion failed at last night’s Randwick City Council meeting. This means that the resolution to Greens Councillor Philipa Vietch’s motion made at the previous meeting stands as the Council position.

Councillors remain divided on the appropriate response by Randwick Council to noise and vibration complaints from residents against CBD to South East Light Rail construction work.

Noise and vibration from the construction of the stabling yards for the CBD to South East Light light rail project have impacted heavily on residents in the adjacent Doncaster Avenue, Kensington

Randwick Greens Councillor Philipa Veitch is advocating calling the NSW state government to account for prolonged disturbance to Kensington’s Doncaster Avenue residents from the CSELR project.

Her latest attempt has been blocked by a rescission motion lodged by Liberal Councillors, which will be debated at tomorrow night’s Council meeting.

If the rescission motion fails the Council will proceed to put the existing resolution to a motion submitted by Cr Veitch at the previous meeting.

Council will urging  that construction work on the  rail stabling yard boarding Doncaster Ave be restricted to business hours along with all other work on the project that would not disrupt traffic.

The Mayor will also be authorized to put an add in the Southern Courier “…noting the failure of the State Government to respond to Council’s numerous representations on this extremely important issue.

Cr Veitch said today,

“I want the State Government to fully respond to the plight on my constituents in Doncaster Avenue who have serious complaints about structural damage caused to a number of houses. One has had suffered substantial damage to its ceiling.”
