The 2010 Darlinghurst and Surry Hills Partnership has secured an unprecedented meeting with the City of Sydney to discuss the concerns of businesses on Oxford St.

“Lower Oxford St and its surrounds face some unique challenges and the 2010 Darlinghurst and Surry Hills Partnership has been fighting to have these recognised for more than seven years,” partnership vice-president Stephan Gyory said.

“As part of our ongoing mission not only to promote the area, but also lobby government agencies, our executive have been very lucky to secure a roundtable meeting with the Lord Mayor, councillors and various heads of departments within the City of Sydney council this May.”

Gyory said this was a unique opportunity for local businesses to have their concerns heard.

“This is unprecedented and no other group in the Local Government Area has been given this opportunity,” he said.

To prepare for the roundtable discussion, the partnership is holding a meeting at the TAP Gallery Theatre on Monday for local business stakeholders where they can raise issues and ensure they are accurately represented by the partnership to the City of Sydney.

“Make sure the partnership accurately reflects your concerns, the issues you face and their potential solutions,” Gyory said.

“I can’t stress how great an opportunity this is and so I would very much like to see you at this meeting so we can hear about your experiences firsthand.”

Refreshments will be provided.
