Leamington saved

After a short, sharp, award-winning campaign they were advised by local MP Carmel Tebbutt that their homes were safe. Wanting to be totally sure they launched a GIPA (FOI) request for the studies used to provide the assurances. Their request was declined and they appealed to the Office of the Information Commissioner who, after eight months, issued a report recommending TNSW undertake further searches for the requested documents. When this was not done, SLA appealed to the Administrative Decisions Tribunal (ADT).

As a result of the ADT proceedings, TNSW was required to undertake further searches, provide evidence that withheld documents were Cabinet documents and partially release two documents. An October 2010 study found construction was possible without affecting Leamington Avenue and concluded: “Properties in Leamington Ave could therefore be removed from the potential project land take requirements.”
