Victory for common sense at Leichhardt school

I welcome today’s announcement by Westconnex Minister Stuart Ayres ruling out creating a construction site next to the Leichhardt campus of Sydney Secondary High School.

This reckless proposal would have caused considerable disruption to the education of the almost 1000 students at the High School.

I congratulate the P&C, staff, students and the broader school community for their strong campaign against this absurd idea.

I am proud to represent an active and spirited community prepared to work together to defend its interests.

This outcome follows wins for the community with the saving of Blackmore Oval in Leichhardt, Ashfield Park and Rozelle’s Easton Park from being sacrificed for the Westconnex project.

Sydney needs infrastructure. But it should not be done at the expense of proper community consultation and the best possible outcome.
