Despite strong community objections, the NSW Government is pushing ahead with its plan to end independent management of Parramatta Park and other important parklands.

The government has released an exposure draft of the Bill that will replace local trusts including the Parramatta Park Trust with a centralised agency, Greater Sydney Parklands.

This Bill will erode protections and undermine funding of our heritage parklands. It also opens up these lands for further commercialisation. You can read the draft Bill here.

These lands are too precious to be left for successive governments to slice off bit by bit. You can register your opposition by sending a message to the NSW Government here.
