The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment is encouraging the community to have its say on a plan to construct a new commercial building above the future Crows Nest metro station.
The Department’s Executive Director of Compliance Industry and Key Sites, Anthea Sargeant, said the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was on public exhibition from today.
The purpose of the EIS is for Sydney Metro to show how it will manage and minimise potential impacts arising from the proposed nine-storey building,” Ms Sargeant said.
“So, it’s important the community provides its feedback as part of our assessment process.”
The development proposed on the corner of Clarke and Hume Streets includes:
- Eight floors of office space;
- A ground-floor lobby;
- A rooftop terrace; and
- 28 bicycle parking spots.
Ms Sargeant said feedback received will help the department to better understand the opinions and concerns of the community and other government agencies to help inform the assessment process.
“Our role is to assess the application in consultation with the local community, government agencies and stakeholders and we encourage everyone to share their views,” Ms Sargeant said.
“After the exhibition closes, the applicant will need to respond to the issues raised. We will review all submissions and feedback as part of our rigorous assessment process.”
The community is invited to have their say on the proposal by 19 July 2021.
