Planning Parramatta - Whitlam Institute Event

Good afternoon Western Sydney Public Transport Users,

The Whitlam Institute is co hosting an event next week in Parramatta that we thought that you and your networks may be interested in. There are three forums in total, but it is the second forum on Urban Planning that would be of particular interest.

We would be very appreciative if you could circulate this information to your networks.

The Whitlam Institute and Riverside Theatres are presenting a three course banquet of erudition and revelry on Crime, Punishment & Urban Planning in NSW as part of ParraMac, Parramatta’s celebrations of the bicentenary of Lachlan Macquarie’s Governorship of NSW.

SECOND COURSE A Dog’s Breakfast or a Moveable Feast? Should Parramatta be torn down and redeveloped from scratch?
7pm WEDNESDAY 28 JULY, $15.00
A forum on the future of Greater Sydney’s urban design and planning with Bob Meyer, Director of Planning, Cox Richardson Architects and Planners, Philip Thalis, founding principal of Hill Thalis Architecture + Urban Projects and Elizabeth Farrelly, author and Sydney Morning Herald columnist.

Governor Lachlan Macquarie had big plans for Parramatta. Come along to this forum to hear some of Sydney’s best and boldest architectural and urban planning thinkers debate ideas about population, sustainability and the modern city.

VENUE: RIVERSIDE THEATRES, CNR CHURCH & MARKET STREETS
