Urban Activation and Planning reforms unite Precincts

The Urban Activation Precinct (UAP) Program  is, according to the NSW Premier, “an important component of a package of wider housing delivery and jobs initiatives.” But the threat of increased density, loss of residential amenity and distrust of the consultation process has the 12 Randwick City Council Precincts united in their objections. Click here to read our submission and resolutions

In addition to the UAP discussion there is the proposed NSW Planning reforms aimed at “returning planning powers to the community”. This seemingly couldn’t be further from the truth. Read the Combined Precincts submission and the Mayors recent media release welcoming the recently announced delays to this process.

Have you eaten at …

Chilli Lime and Beans & Bread?

Two of the latest eateries to adorn the ‘strip’ and both establishing a strong clientele.

Beans & Bread is borne from Mr Esspresso who have shops in Southpoint, Eastgardens and Botany.

Chilli Lime is a fresh take on the Vietnamese roll and also sells noodle and salads.

With the Peninsula shopping precinct to open in December the future of the Matraville high street is looking delicious!
