Another blow to the fight to save Glenlee

Member for Oatley, Mark Coure, has slammed the decision not to recommend the historic Lugarno property ‘Glenlee’ for the State Heritage Register.

Located on the banks of the Georges River, Glenlee is a spectacular piece of green space within our community. To date, no action has been taken by the Minns Labor Government to protect this invaluable piece of local history.

“We’ve seen that despite their promises, the Minns Labor Government has once again failed my community. This is another major blow to our local campaign to save Glenlee,” Mr Coure said.

“In the leadup to the 2023 State Election, Minister for the Environment, Penny Sharpe and Labor Candidate for Oatley, Ashvini Ambihaipahar, promised to enact a new Interim Heritage Order to save Glenlee.”

“Minister Sharpe and Labor have gone back on their word and disappointed our community once again, adding to their rapidly growing list of broken promises.

“Their inability to act quickly despite calls from the community speaks volumes about their priorities. Glenlee continues to remain unprotected and vulnerable to development.

Mr Coure emphasised the importance of preserving Glenlee's heritage for future generations and called on the Minns Labor Government to honour its election commitment to safeguard the area’s cultural heritage.

“Glenlee is an important place in our community because it has remained almost totally undeveloped for 167 years. I will continue to fight hard so that my community is able to enjoy this beautiful site for many more years to come.”
