Crown Sydney legal challenge dismissed

AAP logoAAP 23/12/2016

A community group's legal challenge to the construction of Crown Resorts' six star casino and hotel on Sydney Harbour's foreshore has been dismissed by the Land and Environment Court of NSW.

The Millers Point Fund had challenged a decision by the NSW Planning Assessment Commission to allow Crown's development at Barangaroo, over concerns about a change to its location within the harbourside precinct.

The foreshore site for the project was originally designated as a public park, with the casino to be built further back, but in June the commission approved the construction of the casino on the waterfront.
