WestCONnex Action Group (WAG) welcomes the decision of the NSW Public Accountability Committee Inquiry into the impacts of WestConnex to hold an extra hearing day to recall Roads & Maritime Services (RMS) and the Dept of Planning to explain their earlier evidence.
THE COALITION Against WestConnex (CAW), a network of community groups opposed to WestConnex, notes that on 23 November 2017 the NSW Planning Department published a record breaking 13,000+ submissions on the WestConnex Stage 3 EIS, and the overwhelming rejection of the project by City of Sydney and Inner West Councils, community groups and other organisations.
However, CAW is concerned that the Department has deliberately downplayed the breadth and depth of community opposition by stating in its media release that submissions were mainly coordinated by CAW which it described as a “a local group” opposed to the project.
THE COALITION Against WestCONnex (CAW), a network of community groups opposed to WestConnex, will today, 16 October 2017, submit more than 10,000 objections against the WestConnex Stage 3 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).Read more
