DEICORP has resubmitted its Tallawong Town Centre Plans for 333 apartments

Having previously lodged plans for 375 apartments …

The company has submitted its design for Tallawong Station with Landcom having approved up to 1100 dwellings.

The first stage comprises a town centre, 333 apartments and 3,507 M2 of public space, designated a ‘state significant development site’ in August 2019.

Deicorp appears to be flourishing with a number of projects in the north-west of Sydney.

Stage 2 will provide an additional 654 dwellings … 48 km north-west of Sydney’s CBD

In April Rob Stokes revealed that ‘state significant’ housing developments would be fast-tracked to benefit this sector beyond the Pandemic crisis

There is now a second tranche of ‘shovel ready’ projects.


Including the Ivanhoe Estate at Macquarie Park.

In November 2019 we asked the question:

WHY has Landcom appointed Deicorp for the Sydney Metro Tallawong Station Housing Project?

To answer Peter’s Question Why there’s so much Influence from Our Big Neighbour …

To answer Peter’s Question Why there’s so much Influence from Our Big Neighbour …

‘The Australian’ in its report:

‘Andrews given nod by DFAT on China’

divulged that the current Ambassador to China gave the go-ahead to Victoria to sign on to China’s Belt and Road Initiative.

In May 2018 Graham Fletcher who was at the time a senior Foreign Affairs official advised the Victorian Government that its proposal to sign on to the BRI had merit …!!

FURTHER it has also been revealed in the ‘Sydney Morning Herald’ in ‘Belt and Road Advisory Board was stacked with people linked to CCP’ !

That is the board of an ‘Australian and Victorian Government funded Belt and Road Foundation’   …

Was the Victorian Premier set up?

Why was the website listing the board members removed?

Read more of this SMH report to find out who they are …!

This board was in receipt of $36,850 to provide advice to the Victorian Government in 2017-18 and 2019-20.

In 2016 it received $20,000 from the Australian Government.

Jean Dong, second from right, was involved in setting up the board that advised on Victoria's Belt and Road deal.

Ms Jean Dong, who, it was also revealed previously in The Australian in the story, ‘Advisers secret link to States Agreement on Belt and Road’

was the founder of the Melbourne-based Australia-China Belt and Road Initiative company was awarded two taxpayer-funded contracts in 2017-18 and 2019-20 totalling $36,850 to advise on China’s global commercial play.

Ms Dong was present at the signing of the Australia-China free-trade agreement in 2015 and recruited former federal Liberal trade minister Andrew Robb and former Labor finance minister Lindsay Tanner to the company’s advisory board.

NOW where should the torch light be shone? 

IT would appear that DFAT was sending mixed messages when also to the contrary it raised concerns about China’s influence in the Pacific since 2017.

YET the Australian Government has allowed the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB) to operate and allow all but five ‘foreign acquisition’ applications

Including ‘John Holland’ … ffs …

AND Australia’s residential property sector is awash with ‘black money’ …. As CCP operatives buy up our real estate … including the City of Chatswood … and this is being repeated along the rail lines and highways out to Epping … Ryde … Carlingford … up the line to Roseville, Lindfield and Killara, the Northern Beaches Peninsula … and the Wollondilly …

IN response to the Pandemic Lockdown the leading Australian (PCA) and NSW (UT) developer lobby organisations push for ‘more’ high immigration (and visa manipulation) to ensure their profit margins with the FIRB ruling allowing this sector to sell 100% of new homes to foreign buyers!

DESPITE this and more … Mr Dutton said:

“We have got to ask why this is happening and why is this influence taking place in our country and elsewhere,”

PRIOR to the Pandemic CCP members were flying into Australia numbering 50,000 a week!

-Numerous residential apartment towers are built by Chinese developers

-Chinese state-owned companies now own much of Australia’s power, mines, transport, dairy, beef cattle stations, vineyards, large agricultural properties, commercial property, Health care, Ports including Darwin

Chatswood is being built by CCP money …

DOES it seem that China is all too omnipresent?

Part 4 … More about enabling the Mega Rich Foreign Buying Spree in the North Shore!

CAAN Photo second major residential apartment development on Lindfield Avenue opp. the railway line; next to the emerging Mayrin Group ‘Refined’

Our wander in Lindfield continued on both the western and eastern sides of the railway line.

Image may contain: plant, tree, house, sky and outdoor
CAAN Photo: ‘Refined’ now under construction is now towering over this quality apartment development built in keeping with the local character. The residents have no choice but to put up with the noise and air pollution, and loss of amenity obviously!

IN Lindfield Avenue on the East side … where there have been recent $6M home sales to mega rich buyers from Hong Kong, Taiwan … more major residential apartment developments are underway including ‘Refined’ by the Mayrin Group. 

This developer has appointed Northpoint as the builder of this project.

CAAN Photo: ‘Refined’ by Mayrin Group fronts onto Lindfield Avenue, Lindfield

WHEN one searches to find out more about the Mayrin Group the following information appears on their website:

Propelled by our vision, Mayrin Group reshapes and revitalises communities. … ‘


‘An inspirational and leading property development company working in Australia and internationally, Mayrin Group creates harmonious spaces for living, working and relaxing that are planned in an integrated manner to create vibrant and sustainable communities.’

BUT no link providing company information?  No information about the Board, the company management …

HOWEVER, there is an invitation … it reads:


You can contact us or browse our projects”

With a phone no. and/or email address provided …

SO we looked further, and found this article from the Australian Financial Review, ‘Sydney developer Mayrin pays $35M for townhouse site’ where in fact we found more of what we were looking for!

Reporter, Larry Schlesinger describes Mayrin Group as a  Chinese-backed Sydney developer.  In this report we learn about a group of Roseville home owners uniting to sell out to an overseas developer to make a motza! 

William Wu, director said the development would deliver 40 townhouses close to the (CCP) Chatswood!

In 2017 Mayrin had three high-rise developments underway in Parramatta, Rouse Hill and Sydney Olympic Park (1000 apartments);  the company is owned by Jing Wang.

The nine home sites in Roseville were sold through ‘SAVILLS Australia’ … Savills has an agency in Lindfield.

THUS the ‘Silent Invasion’ is well underway …

Read more … note also reference to JQZ closing a deal in St Leonards (the developer of Prime in Macquarie Park) …

AS neighbours unite and sell out in mega sites they rob their neighbours of the amenity that they have paid for …

AND as this sector bribes more and more home owners and communities to sell out … it is enabling the expansion of the CCP out from Chatswood!

Part 3 … How have the Mega Rich Foreign Buyers Changed the North Shore?

COME join us for a wander around Lindfield in the NSW Seat of Davidson.

ONE may well ask what has brought about the big changes in Lindfield and neighbouring Roseville and Killara? 

Image may contain: tree, sky, plant, cloud, outdoor and nature
CAAN Photo: Milray Street, Lindfield runs parallel to Lindfield Avenue which runs alongside the railway line. Only half a dozen homes remain at this end of the street now built out with apartments. In the background the apartment developments in Lindfield Avenue.

WHEN Jonathan O’Dea has been the NSW Liberal MP for Davidson since 2007, and he again retained the seat in 2011 with the O’Farrell Government, and to date!

‘Building for Tomorrow … And ‘Delivering for Today’ is the current NSW Liberal Party Motto

DESPITE the protests from this Electorate concerning the demolition of beautiful Federation Homes and gardens for residential apartmentsit continues … as O’Dea resides in Lindfield with his family.

With a look at O’Dea’s Home Page it notes his Masters Degrees, and Bachelor Degrees along with two Diplomas in Legal Practice and ‘Mastering the Boardroom’ … no doubt this skills base has been very useful in Davidson for this MP …

BECAUSE all it seems the established residents can look forward to is a new underground carpark. Was this to placate them because their streets were being parked out? With the apartment developments housing X times the number of people as they replace detached homes on large grounds?

We continued with our wander in Lindfield and noticed among the real estate agencies there were Belle, Savills and First National.  The sign read for ‘First National Real Estate Lan – Dom’ … quite unusual don’t you think?

With a google search it revealed that Lan Zhang and her husband started their own agency in 2015. Behind them were 26 years sales experience for Dominic Smith and Lan’s 20 years in trading throughout China and Europe.  And her extensive reach to mainland China, her language skills, and full understanding of Chinese culture

Perhaps this along with some other Real Estate Agencies access to WeChat, Ray White’s Chinese ‘Home Link’ … could explain why there has been such a demographic change and population growth for the North Shore particularly in Lindfield?

AS the CCP expand out from their city of Chatswood!

IS the CoronaVirus Pandemic the Point at which we reassess City Living?

LOOKS like it is time for Pollies, Planners and developers to pause … because …

The CoronaVirus has transformed our city living …

-from shared seating … trains and buses can no longer be full-up and nor can we huddle in cafes

-the Covid-19 a transformative stressor; it might never go away!

-many will want to have their say on the future of their cities

-on working from home with restricted movability

-pollies, planners and developers ought consult residents

-shifting priorities from jam-packed light rail or metro to developing more parks and social infrastructure


Image: The coronavirus crisis could be the demise of our love affair with cities



THE NEWS we’ve been waiting for … Since it was discovered that MASCOT TOWERS were on unstable ground with loss of soil!

THE owners have voted to sue neighbouring property developer Aland over cracks

Image may contain: tree, sky and outdoor
CAAN Photo: Mascot Towers June 2019


LAST Week the Mascot Towers Owners Corporation voted to take legal action against ALAND, the developer of Peak Towers

A statement has been issued which reveals:

-the owners corporation has claimed following excavation work cracks appeared at Mascot Towers

-those constructing Peak Towers removed soil that supported the Mascot Towers

-that Aland’s shoring system was under-designed; piles incorrectly built; with inadequate waterproofing

-October 2019 tests found a loss of soil under the Mascot Towers near the boundary of Peak Towers

-earlier Aland refused to provide the engineers for Mascot Towers with access to inspect the Peak Towers basement

WILL NSW INC heed a message from this? With much of Sydney built on weathered sandstone ridges … and overdevelopment especially in and around Mascot … Ryde … Macquarie Park … MEADOWBANK … Sydney Olympic Park … the Upper North Shore that the Mascot Towers, the Opal Tower maybe but an indicator of more to come!

most of the Public Housing estates in NSW have been sold off for high-rise redevelopment targeting overseas buyers

-a whole Cohort of aspiring Australian First Home Buyers remain locked out … prior to the Pandemic by a ‘hot money’ real estate market and the lowest wages growth for 60 years

NOW many of them may be unemployed!

-the victims of the 2019-20 firestorms 6 months on are living in tents and/or shipping containers, and are begging for money!

These are questions for your local MPs …

PART 2 on Mega Rich Foreign Buyers Scooping Up North Shore Mansions Online!


Image may contain: tree, plant, house, sky, outdoor and nature
CAAN Photo: The Killara Mansion sold weeks ago

THIS Killara property sold prior to the beautiful Lindfield home to a Taiwan buyer for $6.3M … it comes as no surprise, does it, with much overseas interest targeted through WeChat and Ray White’s Chinese Home Link connection?

IT would seem that the CCP expansion from Chatswood is well underway … with these North Shore home sellers keen to maintain their local ‘home values’ …

While across Sydney house prices continue to fall

HAVE the wealthy Upper North Shore community contemplated that as they maintain the Shore’s ‘home values’ by selling to this overseas market … and move onto Byron Bay … that with more foreign buyers particularly from China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan that these exclusive locations are being acquired?

THAT as the new ‘Permanent Residents’ move in they are also buying and setting up business …

WHAT opportunities will there be in turn for the established North Shore Families to live and work in the ‘North Shore’ as more and more of these new overseas buyers move in? As their Familes are priced out by overseas UHNW and HNW?

CHINA’s Acquisition of much of AUSTRALIA’s Assets may Backfire when they aim at Exports they in fact Own!

Communique that CHINA’s next steps will be to focus on more Australian exports including dairy, seafood, oatmeal and fruit to face stricter quality checks or tariffs however this may backfire because China owns many of these companies …

*Nor is there an Australian public register of China’s acquisitions

BUT…Prof. Peter Drysdale from the ANU has put together investment data from the FIRB together with company reports and media stories which can be found on the ANU’s ‘Chinese investment in Australia’ database of the Mainland direct commercial acquisitions in Australia

-another project of KPMG and Sydney university concerns the range of Chinese outbound direct acquisitions in Australia including from four of Australia’s largest abbatoirs


Including Queensland’s Kilcoy Pastoral Company controlled by China’s ‘New Hope Group’


Mengniu … part-owned by the Chinese Government now owns much of Australia’s dairy including:

-Dairy Farmers, Masters and Pura milk; Big M, Dairy Farmers and Pura Classic flavoured milk; Dare and Farmers Union iced coffee; Vitasoy soy milk and coconut milk; and juice brands Daily Juice, The Juice Brothers and Berri; and Yoplait yoghurt.

-Tasmania’s VDL owned by Chinese company Moon Lake

CHINA is the largest export market not only of liquid milk, powder, butter but ‘live dairy cows’ … which tells us that AUSTRALIA may well lose its market altogether …


Exports of $1.25B to China of the total $2.89B global wine exports

China is acquiring Australian vineyards

-no public listing of Chinese ownership of Australia’s wineries*

-Yantai Changyu Pioneer Wine Co owns 80% of Kilikanoon Estate of Adelaide

-by 2018 Chinese owned 10% of the Barossa Valley winemaking region incl. Chateau Yaldara, and 1847 Wines

-Max’s Vineyard was sold in 2018 to a Chinese-backed investor for more than $3 million

-and Cimicky Wines for $6.6 million

-Weilong Wine Grape Company invested $120M to build a winery in Mildura


-93,000 hectare Cubbie Station and its access to water from the Murray Darling!


-China sources two thirds of its iron ore for steel from Australia

-years ago China invested in Fortescue Metals

.but has since sold down its $US771M stake


Yancoal Australia controlled by State-owned Yankuang Group; one of Australia’s biggest thermal coal exporters; with China a key market

WITH so much of what was formerly ‘Australian Owned … Australian Made’ now owned by CHINA … therefore the CCP … it would seem that when some among us say ‘it doesn’t matter who owns it …’

WHEN China now OWNS so much of what was Australian … that you should in turn ask them Why? 

For them to make such an ignorant statement … it would seem that they have a vested interest in the sell-out of Australia …

AND if the FOREIGN INVESTMENT REVIEW BOARD (the FIRB) had not so secretly been selling this Nation out … with only a mere five ‘foreign buy-up applications’ rejected …

AUSTRALIA would be in a far more secure position than it is now!  This bully would not have so much negative impact …


*Professor Allan Fels, a former chairman of the ACCC described the FIRB as a black box and said the scrutiny was long overdue.

-that the FIRB was not a regulatory body; it was not independent, politically *


‘HOW has the FIRB escaped Scrutiny?’


‘China will have to be mindful of which Australian exports they target next if they don’t want to hurt their own interests’

Beef steaks in a butcher with above a sign with both Chinese and English writing
Chinese investors own some of Australia’s largest agricultural and food manufacturing companies that export to China.(ABC Landline: Pip Courtney)



-dating from 29 March 2020 for FIRB approval for investments by foreigners have been reduced to $0 for agreements entered into after this effective time

-previously a range of private purchases in Australian media, residential land sites, mining and production tenements, and vacant commercial land proposals were subject to $0 threshold rules and required FIRB approval

-temporarily FIRB approval now required for purchase of commercial property or businesses valued at less than $275M



-residential property applications are usually processed within 30 days;  no expectation by the FIRB that the processing times are to be delayed

LOOKS like more of the same … the sell-off of Australia’s National Estate …. 

TO DATE only five foreign investment applications have been rejected …
