Alternative Powerhouse Museum location ignored
Suzette Meade, President of the North Parramatta Residents Action Group, who have met with treasury and delivered a business case for a cultural precinct on the 30ha State government owned heritage grounds at north Parramatta.
As reports & documents became available under pressure from community, museum professionals & heritage experts, the group says it has become increasingly clear that Parramatta is not getting the museum it was promised.
Instead it would be a monster flexible event space with residential level that will demolish Parramatta’s already diminishing heritage assets with Willow Grove & St Georges Terraces.
The group have been strongly campaigning for the Museum of NSW to be created in the Fleet Street Heritage Precinct instead of closing the Powerhouse Museum in Ultimo.
