Parramatta. Council will put its case

Parramatta City Council will put its case for a greater government focus and investment in the development of the city and Western Sydney present to Infrastructure Australia and Infrastructure NSW, following the success of its economic development forum earlier this year.

Council has resolved, in part, to develop a report on an implementation and advocacy plan to attract state government departments

The report would examine a systematic approach to lobbying the state government; the scope for amending density of the Civic Place precinct and city centre with a view to accommodating a potential expansion of the height and floor space ratio in line with state government’s needs, prepare a program regarding specific state government departments to lobby; and examine the potential for advertising or the employment of professional lobbyists.
