Royal North Shore Hospital land to be reserved for clinical use only to allow for future expansion of the hospital

Petitioner: Mrs Georgina Roussac | Member: Berejiklian, Gladys | No. of Signatories: 2,782 | Date closed: 09/09/2021
To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly, This Petition of the residents of New South Wales brings to the attention of the House community concerns about the Herbert Street Precinct development. The community requires adequate and easily accessible medical services, both now and for future generations. The NSW Government is proposing to redevelop 2.27 hectares of land within the southern campus of the Royal North Shore Hospital (RNSH) along Herbert Street. About 95% of this development precludes future use of this land for patient related health care by the hospital as it primarily proposes building residential accommodation, a primary school, commercial offices and retail shops. The site of this proposed redevelopment is the most accessible land on the RNSH campus, being adjacent to the St Leonards Train and Bus Interchange. The RNSH campus is one of the smallest Teaching Hospital Campuses in NSW and has only a small amount of remaining land still available to expand the hospital as the population increases. The undersigned petitioners ask the Legislative Assembly to: 1. Cease the proposed Herbert Street Precinct development. 2. Preserve the RNSH land for future hospital growth. 3. Ensure any future development of RNSH land is used for patient related health care by the hospital. 4. Expand the RNSH campus to meet the health care needs of future generations.
