Circular Quay belongs to all Australians.
It’s OUR history, OUR past, and OUR CHILDREN’S
heritage that’s now at stake.
Support the replacement of the former Coca Cola Amatil building
The approval of a single non-complaint building more than 20 metres taller than any allowed by current regulations for Circular Quay is unnecessary, undesirable and unwarranted as a dangerous precedent for future unrestrained development impacting on Circular Quay
We believe the Circular Quay precinct to be of national historic and cultural significance to all Australians.
To mark this status we further believe that Circular Quay should at all times present and future be protected from unwarranted or excessive commercial development through the permanent adoption of City of Sydney planning regulations and guidelines for the precinct as expressed in the Sydney LEP 2005.
We further believe the former Coca-Cola Amatil building site at 79 Macquarie Street, East Circular Quay should be acquired through public subscription with government support to allow it to be set aside as a public park – adding to the amenity of East Circular Quay while also serving to emphasise the existing separation of the City of Sydney from Circular Quay as State and National precincts respectively.
We need your urgent help and support to:
- Call for an immediate review of the approval process
- Establish an independent panel to examine alternate plans and uses
- Support the replacement of the former Coca Cola Amatil building with a public park to match First Fleet Park on the western side of Circular Quay.
