David Coleman MP held a Community Meeting in South Hurstville on June 20 to discuss his opposition to the Kogarah New City Plan with the local community.

The meeting focused in particular on the impact of the proposed plan on the South Hurstville area.

The Kogarah New City Plan allows for developments of up to 21 metres high along King Georges Road, and substantial changes along Connells Point Road and surrounding streets.

“The current plan is just not appropriate for South Hurstville”, Mr Coleman said.  

“These changes would result in a massive change to the environment of the area”.

More than 80 local residents attended the meeting, which was held on the corner of Connells Point Road and King Georges Road.

Mr Coleman said that the meeting had provided a good opportunity for local residents to express their concerns.

“I will be strongly urging Kogarah Council to revise its plan for South Hurstville. It is important that the voice of the community is heard on this important issue.”
