Motion on Sydney Metro land title issues in Newtown

I was contacted in late February by residents in Lord St Newtown who had discovered they had an ‘unregistered dealing’ on their land titles as a result of unfinalised acquisitions of land under their properties for the Sydney Metro project. This has stopped some residents from refinancing or even selling their homes, with no resolution in site - which is why I'll be moving that Inner West Council writes to the relevant Ministers to demand urgent action at our meeting next week.
