Parramatta War Memorial Swimming Club demands answers about pool relocation

North Parramatta Residents Action Group president Suzette Meade reminded authorities of a landmark case in the Land and Environment Court last year. The Friends of Kind Edward Park won its fight against Newcastle Council to turn a reserve into a function centre on the basis public recreation land must not be developed for a purpose that excludes the public.

“We would caution the proponents that the pool is on crown land which is for public use not commercial or privatisation,” Mrs Meade said.

“A sensible compromise and redesign of stadium footprint could be easily found to avoid expensive legal action.”
