New President of 2011 Residents Association

Media Release 26 August 2011

Lucas Crabtree has been elected president of the 2011 Residents Association for 2011 – 2012.

Mr Crabtree, who has a background in architecture and works as a senior project manager at Taronga Conservation Society Australia, has lived in Elizabeth Bay and Kings Cross for a decade.  During this time he has seen the ongoing problems facing residents living in the most densely populated area in Sydney.

“It is important that the community and local residents have a voice and work together to protect and improve their neighbourhood. The 2011 Residents Association is a group that has had much success in making sure that residents’ needs are not overlooked,” said Mr Crabtree.

“I am keen to address the ongoing challenges for residents living near the biggest entertainment precinct in Australia.

“The club and pub scene impacts on residents’ lives and this is especially evident at night time. Traffic noise and congestion is a concern to many, as is the noise generated by revellers as they make their way home.

“The City of Sydney needs to improve compliance monitoring of the pubs and clubs through utilisation of compliance officers, as the police, who do a great job against all odds, simply can’t deal with the situation alone.

“In addition to the many problems facing our community due to the impact of the entertainment precinct, we are determined to ensure that the 2011 neighbourhood is not overdeveloped inappropriately for the sake of a quick developer profit.

“The proposed Elizabeth Bay Marina, with its plans for a 40 berth marina, is just such a development, and has the potential to impact on the amenity of local residents.

“We will work closely with residents living in the entire 2011 postcode stretching from Woolloomooloo through Kings Cross, Elizabeth Bay and Potts Point to Rushcutters Bay in order to make this the best area in metropolitan Sydney in which to live.”
