Barangaroo skate park a step closer

While there has been a lot of bad news surrounding Barangaroo this week there has been one positive story emerge from it all.  The hard work of two committed young skaters, Zane and Rory, and their mother, Juliet Barr, has secured a promise from Shadow Planning Minister Brad Hazzard to recommend a skate park be built at Barangaroo.  See this article for more details.

This is a significant development because after the 26th of March Mr Hazzard is likely to be Planning Minsiter and have final say on what happens at Barangaroo.

Juliet and I have been campaigning for a skate park at Barangaroo since early last year.  As outlined in this letter I have sent to Brad Hazzard on the matter, I successfully put a motion through Council which will see Council and the Barangaroo Delivery Authority work together on this project.

Congratulations to Juliet, Zane and Rory for all the hard work they have put into getting us this far.  The Greens and I will be keeping an eye on the progress at Barangaroo to make sure this long-awaited skate park is finally built.
