I am advised:
1-2. A new ~5,200sqm parkland between Wattle Street and Walker Avenue,
known as Haberfield Gardens, has been constructed. The park is built on
land formerly used for construction of the M4 East project and was
developed in consultation with the community and local
council.Negotiations are underway between Transport for NSW and Inner West
Council to transfer the care, control and management arrangement to Council.
3. No. The acquired residential properties on Walker Avenue were initially
proposed as a Community Centre under care, control and management
arrangement with Inner WestCouncil to meet a Condition of Approval.
Following consultation with the community, residents in Walker Avenue
objected to this proposal and instead Inner West Council accepted
$2.5 million for the purpose of enhancing existing local community facilities
in consultation with the community.
4. In accordance with the M4 East Conditions of Approval, Transport for NSW
has prepared and submitted a Residual Land Management Plan to the Department of
Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE). The plan is currently being
finalised following DPIE review.
