Object to the Western Harbour & Warringah Freeway Upgrade EIS
The final documents are out for the largest project to impact the North Shore and our concerns have been confirmed.
We're all on the same team and we know the current tunnel plans don't make sense, won't solve congestion and aren't fair. It's all pain, no gain. If you want more sustainable transport options not toxic toll roads, if you are concerned about impacts on environment, climate, property, amenity and community make your voice heard and act today - it's quick, easy and every voice makes a real difference.
We can't do this without you.
If you only have time to do one thing this is the most important!
The Department of Planning and Environment require you to log in to their planning portal to submit an objection. This is the way the Department gathers community responses to the EIS. It is important that you mark your feedback as an objection or it will be discounted as a mere comment. As a community we need as many people as possible to submit their objections to ensure that our communities valid concerns are heard.
Once you have logged in you will be able to complete an online form which outlines the basis of your objection. It is important to include personal content to explain how you, your family or community will be personally impacted.
Can't make a submission online? You can still send a physical copy of your submission to the Department of Planning by post or hand deliver it to one of the Department's offices.
We have created a flyer outlining community impacts and steps to object to the project.
Please email it around, share it on social media or even do letterbox drop on your regular walk.
Your submission must include:
1. Your name and address, at the top of the letter only;
2. The name of the application and the application number; SSI_8863
3. A statement on whether you support or object to the proposal;
4. The reasons why you support or object to the proposal; and
5. A declaration of any reportable political donations made in the previous two years.
6. Your submission must reach us before the close of the exhibition period and should be addressed to:
Attention: Director, Transport Assessments
