Susan Price reports that 100s of residents showed their love for the historic Willow Grove villa in Parramatta.
Susan Price writes that despite widespread opposition, the NSW government is pushing ahead with its controversial Powerhouse Museum proposal next to the Parramatta River.
Artists, gardeners and knitters have created a "guerrilla gallery" on Parramatta's historic St George’s Terrace to protest plans to demolish two of the city’s most significant heritage-listed buildings, reports Susan Price.
People power has stopped the Powerhouse Museum from being sold off but the fight to stop historic Parramatta from being bulldozed continues, reports Jim McIlroy.
The iconic Sirius building in the inner-city Rocks area has been temporarily saved from being sold to private developers, after the Land and Environment Court ruled on July 24 that the NSW government’s decision to keep the building off the heritage list was invalid.
The famous brutalist-style Sirius was specially built for public housing tenants, following the successful Builders Labourers Federation Green Bans campaign of the 1970s.
