In Newtown NSW on “Review request under...” at 1 Bedford Street Newtown NSW 2042:

Please allow the market to keep going. I do not understand how it takes any business away from any other businesses in the area - it is a completely different kind of thing and appeals to old Newtowners and new. It is a vital part of the area - I used to come to the Newtown Market when I would visit from Melbourne. Now I live in St Peters and will look in every few weeks or so.

I can't help but feel this is coming from somewhere else. Do incoming newer locals dislike the market because it is bric-a-brac and secondhand wares? is it too down at heel for the "new" Newtown? Do Liberal counsellors want it gone???

There is room for all in Newtown. You should remember that before trying to change it.
