BACK ON: public green space not luxury towers: protect Shafston House


Property developers are proposing a 15+ storey luxury apartment tower just a few metres away from the historic Shafston House. 

Not only will this undermine the heritage value of this historic site and cause excessive overshadowing on neighbouring buildings, these luxury apartments will exacerbate the housing affordability crisis through further gentrification. 

The 2,500 square metres of green space – of “communal lawn” – on this site will also remain closed off to the public. This riverfront historic green space should be open to the public so it can be enjoyed by all. 

The LNP-dominated council's City Plan treats this as a Code Assessable development, denying locals legal pathways to challenge this project.

So to fight this unsustainable private development, local residents are taking to the street. Join your neighbours, local Councillor and state MP to protest this outrageous development.
