A Development Application is pending to claim public land along Sydney Harbour foreshore for corporate entertainment and benefit. Lavender Green is is a very popular and well loved strip on the harbour foreshore, squeezed between the railway line and the harbour. Locals are upset as Luna Park are trying to grab it back from the community for corporate events. See their claims here
The Green has already been “claimed” by Luna Park, is already fenced off, with a gate and tables and chairs for the (assumed) playing patrons of Luna Park marquee events.
Note: North Sydney council has only 1% of its total area devoted to “public” space. Let’s not lose this precious and unique foreshore public land to private greed.
