Japara’s 132-bed Sydney seniors living facility objected to by local MP

Published on

Plans for the residential aged care facility in Sydney’s north-western suburb of Carlingford, originally submitted by Japara Healthcare, have been objected to by state Liberal MP David Elliott.

Japara has since said it is no longer involved in the development – however it is not clear when their withdrawal occurred.

Mr Elliott expressed his opposition to the proposal, and any future submissions, in a letter to the Sydney Central City Planning Panel. He said the development “refused to accommodate or implement long-awaited infrastructure” for Carlingford residents.

The MP argued the proposed site – located on a suburban street – was “already unable to cope” with current traffic congestion, which would be exacerbated by the part three- and part four-storey facility’s construction.

The future of the project since Mr Elliott’s objection and Japara’s withdrawal remains to be seen.
