The GREATER SYDNEY COMMISSION, (the GSC) was established by NSW Minister for Planning Rob Stokes in 2015 …
Mrs Turnbull described Chatswood as the … ideal model for high density urban growth … urban density done well …
That is her opinion … however, many find it to be congested … overdeveloped for a monoculture …
Its sewer system … more than 100 years old not coping … with a foul odour permeating in the air …
With the Meriton Group having led the way for other developers … by seeking its market entirely from China is this what is meant by Sydney as ‘a global city’?
FAST FORWARD TO 2019: CHATSWOOD is a city in the middle of nowhere being built by the Chinese Communist Party …
CONTRARY to Mrs Turnbull … Australian Key Workers (Professionals) such as teachers, nurses, paramedics and police officers have now been priced out of living closer to Sydney and their workplaces … and replaced by the ‘Silent Invasion’ …
WITH the Hong Kong Consortium MTR privatising what were publicly owned heavy rail lines for the SYDNEY METRO … all connecting to CHATSWOOD … there is no need for the new ‘Permanent Residents’ to own a car if they choose … however, they have not only laundered ‘hot money’ in real estate but drive European limousines …

‘NEWLY appointed chairwoman of the Greater Sydney Commission Lucy Turnbull has hailed a northern Sydney suburb as the ideal model for high density urban growth.‘
December 12, 2015
THE newly appointed chairwoman of the Greater Sydney Commission — Lucy Turnbull — has hailed Chatswood as the ideal model for high density urban growth.
*“Chatswood is actually the perfect illustration of urban density done well. It is right on the train line and there is a huge cluster here of jobs, shops and housing including the Meriton apartments,” Mrs Turnbull said.
*“It is a really amazing model for transit oriented developments and density done well.”
Mrs Turnbull made the comments to the North Shore Times before attending the launch of Meriton’s $700 million mixed-use Centrium apartments in Chatswood on December 3.
As commission chairwoman, the former lord mayor of Sydney will be charged with carrying out the State Government’s Plan For Growing Sydney, released last year.
Chatswood has been identified as a strategic centre in the plan and will be the focal point for high-rise development on the north shore.
The plan identifies suburbs along the North Shore Line as sites for increased housing density.
CAAN: There is no reference to identifying other suburbs along the north shore line for increased housing density … was the reference deleted or redacted?
How much influence/lobbying was exerted by the ‘North Shore’ to protect their neighbourhood? Has the North Shore set the BENCHMARK for other communities to follow?
“It is really important in a global city such as Sydney that there is a big range of different price points for people to access so you can have key workers such as teachers, nurses and police officers living closer to the city if that is where they want to be,” Mrs Turnbull said.
