The 70+ year old Wellington Street tennis courts have been closed down by the developers, Sports Properties, to make way for 42+ apartments. To do this, they have applied once again to rezone the land. This means the community loses access to recreational space, and Bondi gets another block of apartments.
Council has said NO three times! Your local member the Hon. Gabrielle Upton has consistently objected to this proposal since 2010, and YOU have said a resounding NO over and over.
If you have said No Rezone before, then Council needs you to say No Rezone again! Council needs to give the State Government a report, and the more letters you write, the stronger their case. This is the ONLY CHANCE that the State Government is going to give you to have an official say.
This ONE and ONLY chance ends at 5pm, Wednesay 5th November!

Go here for some EXAMPLE LETTERS, as well as KEY ISSUES to include. But it’s always best to make the letter your own and include personal reasons as to why you support Bondi’s Recreational Space. If you think Bondi Beach needs to keep what’s left of its recreational space rather than build more apartments just for profit, then say so now.
