The battle of Waterloo is all about style

2 0 0

The NSW government and the Council of the City of Sydney are locked in a "battle of the styles" over the revitalisation of the Waterloo Social Housing Estate.

City of Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore and her council planning staff have put a shot across the bow of the NSW government's masterplan with their own vision.

Amazingly Ms Moore's team have resorted to the colonial authoritarian plans of the 1820s when a town must have a public square or park and eight rows of housing lined up next to the square.

The City of Sydney council would create one large park with a community centre at the estate site, under a lower-density plan.Credit:City of Sydney
