Sydney Football Stadium demolition to resume after court rejects injunction extension
Sydney’s Allianz Stadium at Moore Park can now be dismantled after NSW's Land and Environment Court dismissed an application to extend an injunction on hard demolition works at the facility.
Community group Local Democracy Matters asked the court to extend an injunction on the demolition until Monday, when their appeal will be heard.
The group had challenged the $730 million plan to demolish the venue but the Court ruled in favour of the NSW Government on Wednesday.
The Court said the NSW Government had acted within regulations and an existing injunction on hard demolition until 5pm yesterday has now been vacated.
The decision to demolish the 31-year-old stadium and build a new venue on the site has sparked significant political debate for almost 12 months.
The NSW Government argues the stadium needs to be knocked down as it is a safety risk, but the Opposition maintains the money would be better spent on health and education.
Chris Maltby from Local Democracy Matters said the group would apply for another injunction in the Court of Appeal first thing on Monday.
He advised “we've got a couple of days where the stadium is unprotected and we hope the Premier won't take advantage of that to do the sorts of work that is irreparable.”
Footage taken by major news media this week shows demolition teams removing interior fittings from the venue.
