Carrington Road Marrickville South – I was interested to see that the artists impression incuded these heritage Canary Island palm trees & the cycle path.

It is worth having a look at the ‘artist’s impression’ of development supposed to be coming to Carrington Road Marrickville in today’s Sydney Morning Herald.  Of note is that this area has always been zoned industrial & is prone to flooding. See – http://bit.ly/1VQQzSQ

Thankfully Marrickville Council did not leap on the bandwagon.

Marrickville Council was immediately sceptical about aspects of the plan. A spokeswoman said the council supported increasing densities around stations, but “a lighter touch that allows new forms of dense housing that can work with the established pattern of streets and the grain of the subdivision is essential”.

In October 2013 I wrote about the plans I found for two 23-storey towers, part of a massive development for the eastern side of Carrington Road. The state government plans include high-rise on both sides of Carrington Road. See – http://bit.ly/1NceS6k

One good thing about the plans is the revival of The Greenway, which was dumped by the NSW state government in 2013.

Where will people work if we lose our industrial lands?
