Stop Barangaroo Stop Lend Lease Stop Crown



Given everything that has been revealed over the last few weeks surely it would be in the public interest that all Barangaroo proceedings are halted and that all processes which led to Crown being granted carte blanche in combination with Lend Lease are reviewed.

The City of Sydney has 'accused the government of having a conflict of interest because it was both the land owner and the assessment authority for Barangaroo' and the City goes on to say in their 'blunt and strongly worded' paper that this 'brings with it significant risks, perceptions of bias and a lack of independent scrutiny of the development assessment.'

I couldn't agree more and I believe that we're entitled to ask our democratically elected representatives 'what the hell is going on?'

I blogged about the web of Barangaroo connections in March 2011 (and now notice that the 'Lend Lease' link with 'Better Place Australia' has been tidied into oblivion).

Reading the countless articles that have filled Australian newspapers and websites for many years on Barangaroo, it would appear that many fingers have been in the Barangaroo pie (although admittedly most of those fingers seem to be on the same hand) ...
