SMALL LANDOWNERS WANT FAIR GO ON AEROTROPOLIS

Anne Stanley MP, Member for Werriwa, and Liverpool City Councillor, Nathan Hagarty, have spoken out in support of small landowners in and around Western Sydney Airport, following scandals involving the State and Federal Government.

With recent revelations involving the Leppington Triangle and the ICAC hearings into disgraced former Liberal MP Daryl Maguire, Ms Stanley this week spoke in Federal Parliament on the treatment received by smaller local landowners near the airport.

“What about the smaller landowners? Do they get access to the corridors of Macquarie Street? Do they get to set sale prices?” Ms Stanley said.

While the State Government have announced plans for a strategy to outline ownership arrangements, Ms Stanley has called on the State Government to do more.

“This is causing unnecessary stress and anguish. Landowners demands are not unreasonable. They want some certainty for their future and some transparency and confidence in the process,” Ms Stanley said.

Councillor Hagarty said “We’ve got a semi-rural area being transformed into a city the size of Adelaide. We need to get this right and we need to make sure everyone gets a fair go along the way. And that must include the existing landowners and residents.”
