Region. Developers v market gardeners

The clash between agricultural lands and urbanisation in Greater Western Sydney should not be reduced to a fight between developers and market gardeners, according to Clr Alison McLaren, President of the Western Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils (WSROC). “The residents of Western Sydney have much more at stake – the challenge of securing food supply for our region, There will be 1 million more people living in Western Sydney by 2036. We need a plan to secure Western Sydney’s food supply in an equitable, low cost, economically and environmentally sustainable way,” she said. Clr McLaren said the issue would be discussed at a Centre for Health Innovation and Partnership (CHIP) Leaders Forum, on May 17.
