Inner west rezoning divides community [Sydney]

April 21, 2023


Audience members interrupted one speech and asked a pro-density speaker whether they lived locally and if they were a developer.

NIMBY and YIMBY residents and politicians clashed at a public meeting over proposed rezoning in Sydney’s inner west, aiming to address the housing supply shortage. Inner West Council plans to rezone areas near Taverners Hill light rail station for 438 new dwellings. Proponents argue the proposal is modest and well-located, but opponents demand development be limited to Parramatta Road. The debate highlights ongoing tensions between community interests and housing supply needs in growing urban areas.
