Consultation on Scottish Hospital redevelopment

The NSW Planning Assessment Commission will be holding a public meeting to hear community concerns about the redevelopment proposal for the Paddington Scottish Hospital site at 3 pm on Monday 23 April at the Paddington RSL Club, 220-232 Oxford Street Paddington.

The Department of Planning has recommended approval of the proposal with minor changes:

  • increasing the setback for levels three, four, five, six and seven from Stephen Street by at least two metres
  • screening the site electricity substation from view
  • minor changes for stormwater, water and waste water mains, and
  • construction and tree management plans to be approved by Woollahra Council.

My submission on the proposal asked the Planning Minister to reduce the scale of the proposal and protect the important urban forest on the site. There is considerable resident concern about overdevelopment, inappropriate and unsympathetic design, loss of trees and green landscaping, loss of views, and traffic impacts.

This meeting is an opportunity for residents to raise concerns directly with the decision makers. You need to register beforehand to speak at the meeting.

Two weeks after getting it wrong, the Daily Tele 'clarifies' their errors. But today's effort gets it wrong too. Despite claims in this 'clarification', the Tele always knew @cityofsydney was not involved in this project because we and CoDesign Studio told them so from the beginning. They won't let the facts get in the way of their agenda.

This is Mary Veronica, the new tunneling machine which will help flood-proof Green Square. Anyone living in or passing through the Green Square area during April's torrential rains would remember chest-high water and flooding. Work has commenced on a new 2.4km underground stormwater drain to reduce the damage of such floods and help make this area a great place for thousands of people to live and work safely. At a cost of more than $90 million, this project is a key component of the City’s $440 million transformation plan for new infrastructure and community facilities.
