Great news, following the unanimous support of the City of Sydney Environment and Heritage Committee yesterday, the full council meeting next Monday Dec 6th will pass the proposal to put the Sydney City Farm Feasability Study on exhibition for public comment.
Monday 6th Dec at 5 pm, Sydney Town Hall
Come to this meeting if you’d like to see witness this major step toward our city farm.
See below for more info on the proposal.
The following night Leichhardt Council will consider the Callan Park Masterplan before it goes on public exhibition.
We encourage you to come to this meeting
Tuesday 7th Dec at 7 pm Leichhardt Council Chambers.
More information on the City of Sydney proposal:
The Committee voted in favour of the “articulated model” for a city farm. This would see horticultural and associated activities localised in Sydney Park at St Peters and the educational/cultural elements in a facility in the disused car park of the Powerhouse Museum in Ultimo.
The full report by Cloustons is available on the Council’s website:
Sydney City Farm president Andrew Jackson spoke at the Committee meeting in support of the proposal:
“We congratulate City of Sydney Council on supporting progress towards establishing a functional City Farm in the Sydney LGA. A city farm will provide opportunities for a broad cross section of people to change the way they live and to reduce their carbon emissions.”.
We want to thank all our Sydney City Farm supporters who attended the various meetings for both Callan Park and the City of Sydney workshops, as well as all our members who were there in spirit. An outcome of three city farms is beyond our expectations and you helped us get there.
We look forward to seeing you at the City of Sydney Council Meeting at Sydney Town Hall next Monday 6th Dec, 5pm and the Leichhardt Council chambers the following evening, 7pm.
