Councillor Angela Vithoulkas Notice of Motion

City of Sydney support for businesses and residents impacted by Sydney light rail construction

It is resolved that Council:

(A) note:

(i) Sydney light rail construction continues to negatively impact the lives and amenity of our local community of residents and businesses along the construction route;

(ii) while Transport for NSW has a 24 hour 1800 contact hotline people are often frustrated and confused about the outcome of liaison through this medium;

(iii) a petition lodged at Council by the local community requests the City of Sydney’s support in dealing with this matter; and

(iv) the City of Sydney actively advocates, supports and provides funding on behalf of businesses and residents impacted by other projects like WestConnex and the sale of public housing in Millers Point;

and

(B) request the Chief Executive Officer:

(i) investigate the internal appointment of an existing member of staff to be assigned as the Light Rail Construction Liaison Officer within Council to liaise on behalf of City of Sydney residents and businesses with Transport for NSW about construction issues and questions;

(ii) prominently display the contact details of that person on the City of Sydney’s website and in any communications as applicable; and

(iii) keep Councillors informed via the CEO update as to the number of calls and issues raised.
