|About Save Our Suburbs|
Our Suburbs (NSW) Inc is a non-profit & non-aligned group of residents,
originally formed to fight against forced rezoning and over-development
of Sydney’s suburbs. It has grown to include communities who are fighting
for better planning and regulation on a range of development issues, including
major infrastructure projects such as road tunnels.
Sydney’s beleaguered residents have been fighting an endless string of localised battles against increased density developments ("urban consolidation") and badly planned developments such as unfiltered tunnel exhaust stacks. We have been fighting local councils about local rezoning and local developments, and state government departments about the lack of regulation and planning. Residents are usually the losers in these local battles.
If we want to effectively protect the environment and heritage of our suburbs, we need to take the fight beyond our local areas into the State Government arena.
This can only
be achieved by organised and united residents. Save Our Suburbs (NSW)
Inc has been formed for this very purpose.
