2011 Residents Association members and supporters are protesting against the proposed relaxation of the State Government’s pub and club lockout laws. In this photo they are seen attending a Wentworth Courier photo shoot and interview on 19 January 2015.

Alcohol-Related Violence
2011RA is very concerned with the effects of the excessive consumption of alcohol and the resultant violence and anti-social behaviour on the residential amenity and safety in our area. It supports the NSW Government’s laws of February 2014 as a partial solution.

Election Information Flyer on the Lockout Laws

The NSW State Election was on 28 March 2015.

There wasn’t a concise summary of the policies of the main candidates relating to the lockouts which had been so successful in dramatically improving the amenity of our neighbourhood.

So we produced a flyer which would enable residents to make an informed choice on election day and distributed it to residents’ letterboxes.

You can view our flyer here.

Reg Bartley Oval, Rushcutters Bay Park
The 2011RA is concerned about Council’s proposed alterations to the Reg Bartley Oval in the heritage-listed Rushcutters Bay Park, in particular the addition of mega light poles and the replacement of the wooden picket fence. 2011RA supports the current campaign by the Friends of Rushcutters Bay Park on this issue.

Community garden

The 2011RA supports the community garden projects in Wolloomooloo and is actively seeking support for community gardens in Potts Point and Elizabeth Bay. Please contact us on 2011rai@gmail.com to get involved.

Fitzroy Gardens, Kings Cross
The 2011RA and local residents responded strongly to the City of Sydney Council’s plans to redevelop the Fitzroy Gardens, which included the removal of convict brick work and a Chinese elm tree. They supported the “Save Fitzroy Gardens” campaign in 2010.  We support the maintenance and improvement of the park currently proposed by the City of Sydney but oppose the removal the original landscape features of the park.  The Berzins designed landscaped gardens and park are integral to the heritage and amenity of our neighbourhood.
