Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Newcastle Urban Renewal Strategy.
The Draft Strategy:
i) Includes no funding commitment for infrastructure necessary to the success of the strategy
ii) Failed to take into account the increased need for a railway line to the city centre should urban renewal succeed, especially given the large university campus planned for the Civic precinct.
iii) Failed to actively promote environmental sustainability practices or to include energy and water conservation strategies for the city.
iv) Failed to provide a viable plan for conservation of the city’s unique heritage
v) Failed to include ongoing community consultation.
