Submission for: The new Sydney Fish Market - Concept and Stage 1
CLAREMONT MEADOWS, New South Wales
I object to the development of the New Sydney Fish Market project. I am employed by Hanson Construction Materials Pty Ltd, employed as the Plant Manager at the Blackwattle Bay Concrete Batching Plant located at 1A Bridge Road, Glebe NSW 2037. I object to the development of the New Sydney Fish Market for the following reasons:
• The development may limit employment opportunities and create vulnerability to myself and others at Hanson;
• The removal of the concrete batch plant will result in increases to the travel time for agitator trucks to deliver to the Sydney CBD and Inner West. This will impact my ability to service our customers.
• The removal of the concrete batch plant will adversely impact the road network as agitator trucks are required to transport wet concrete greater distances, causing more congestion and adding unproductive hours to my and other road users day.
• I currently supply concrete to support planned development for the Sydney CBD and Inner West over the next twenty years. The demolition of the site without its proposed replacement in operation at Glebe Island (SSD 8554), could result in an unreliable supply of concrete to current and future construction demands.
