I don’t mind David Pitchford, Director of Urban Growth NSW, tooting his own horn “Laying solid foundations to make communities vibrant” but please make sure you are playing all the sheet music.
David Pitchford has conveniently just played the chorus the community in Parramatta hear over and over again “restoring the heritage core”.
Mr Pitchford seems to have forgotten many verses of the Urban Growth NSW propaganda song. Like proposing to sell the surrounding 20ha of public land equally as historic for private residential development. Or the second verse which proposes 4,000 private residential units in towers up to 30 stories, just meters from the oldest convict female factory in Australia – ruining any chance of gaining a well deserved world heritage listing.
Well, we have a little ditty for you Mr Pitchford, and it goes like this:
Urban Growth NSW are not welcome by the community in Parramatta.
We will be standing shoulder to shoulder to uphold the green ban Jack Mundey and the CFMEU placed on this entire site, until you and the new “Landcom on steroids” hit the road.
