Transport department criticises plans for 3400 new homes on Sydney's northern beaches - The Sydney Morning Herald

The NSW government's plans to deliver thousands of new homes on Sydney's northern beaches have been heavily criticised by the state's transport department, which has refused to support the project until further assurances are made.

In December, the NSW government unveiled its plan to transform 700 hectares of land in Ingleside, near Mona Vale, into a new community comprising 3400 new homes for as many as 9000 residents, while conserving large parcels of bushland.

If yesterday’s Anzac Day clash between the Roosters and Dragons was to be viewed as any form of rehearsal for the halfback position in the New South Wales State of Origin team, then to my mind, Rooster halfback Mitchell Pearce passed with flying colours.

If I was picking this year’s New South Wales Origin side, (and thankfully I’m not), then I would have no hesitation in handing Mitchell Pearce the number seven jumper.

I’m not even sure if Mitchell wants to play Origin football. Hopefully he does. But I can understand if he doesn’t.

The battle scars he undoubtedly carries from his previous experiences at this level, may well have him feeling he never wants to go back there again. I can understand his hesitation, but if given the chance, I’d like to try and convince him why he should. To me, he’s the right man for the job.

Police chase Audi sports car through Sydney after it was stolen at ... - The Sydney Morning Herald

A man who stole a $230,000 high-performance Audi at gunpoint during a test drive in Sydney's north-east overnight remains on the run after leading police on a series of high-speed pursuits across the city, including through the Sydney Harbour Tunnel.

Dramatic footage captured on a mobile shows a police officer at one point running up to the stolen Audi R8 in Woolloomooloo and striking the driver's side window several times, before the thief revs the vehicle, drives up the gutter and speeds off.

Houses on leafier streets in three Sydney suburbs worth $50,000 ... - The Sydney Morning Herald

Street trees do more than just provide shade and a pleasant green outlook - they can also boost your home's value by tens of thousands of dollars, according to new research.

Global engineering and urban design company AECOM analysed tree canopy coverage and five years of house price data in three Sydney suburbs: Blacktown, Willoughby and Annandale.

Cooling coverage: a leafy street in Alexandria. Cooling coverage: a leafy street in Alexandria.  Photo: City of Sydney

The company found that houses on streets with 10 percentage points more tree coverage were worth an average of $50,000 more than houses on less leafy streets in the same suburb.

The biggest difference was in Annandale, where the average canopy coverage is about 25 per cent: houses in streets with 35 per cent tree coverage were worth $61,000 more.

In Blacktown, where average canopy coverage is just 11 per cent, an increase to 21 per cent translated to a $55,000...

NSW government fails to appeal Ku-ring-gai Council amalgamation ... - The Sydney Morning Herald

The NSW government has abandoned one option to forcibly merge Ku-ring-gai Council with Hornsby, after failing to meet a deadline to appeal against a court decision – leaving questions around the future of other Sydney councils fighting forced amalgamations.

In March, the Court of Appeal found Ku-ring-gai Council had been denied procedural fairness by the government because it kept two reports on which it based the amalgamations policy secret.

NSW to fight Victoria to host Comm Games - 9news.com.au - 9news.com.au

Australia's bid to host the 2026 or 2030 Commonwealth Games is heating up with western Sydney and regional Victoria pushing to win the rights to hold the event.

Western Sydney leaders began their audacious bid on Friday as the Western Sydney Leadership Dialogue made its pitch at the Out There Summit in Parramatta to bring the Games west.

It came just a few weeks after 11 regional Victorian towns floated their potential bid for the 2030 games.

Commonwealth Games Australia chief executive officer Craig Phillips says the body is yet to consult with the potential bidding teams but he's "thrilled" to see such enthusiasm.

A decision on host cities for the 2026 and 2030 Games will not be made for a several years, but Mr Phillips said he expected an incredible amount of domestic and international competition for the right to host.

The idea has been well received by NSW Premier Gladys...

NSW coach Laurie Daley challenges Sydney Roosters halfback Mitchell Pearce to exert same control at State of Origin ... - The Sydney Morning Herald

Laurie Daley has challenged Mitchell Pearce to prove he can be as much in control of a NSW side as he is with the Roosters – if the Blues coach gives the NRL's form halfback the nod for a State of Origin recall.

While stopping short of confirming Pearce had his nose in front for the NSW No.7 jersey after his match-winning heroics on Anzac Day, Daley has already laid down the gauntlet to the 28-year-old just a month out from the series opener.

New NSW police specialist unit hopes to intervene before lone-wolf-style attacks - ABC Online

NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller with Police Minister Troy Grant in Sydney.

Fixated people driven by extreme political, religious or ideological beliefs who make threats of violence will be the target of a specialist investigations team, New South Wales Police have announced.

Police Commissioner Mick Fuller said the unit would focus on the detection, intervention and prevention of "lone actors" and will be staffed by NSW detectives and mental health experts.

"The unit will investigate individuals who've made threats of violence and then determine whether they should be arrested and charged or provided with mental health care," he said.

Police Minister Troy Grant said the Fixated Persons Investigations Unit would also identify people who may be vulnerable to rapid radicalisation or lone-wolf-style attacks.

"When you look back on an incident,...

Dramatic funnel cloud swirls on the horizon in rural New South Wales - 9news.com.au

"As I looked over at the storm clouds nearby, I was a bit dumbfounded to spot a Vortex coming from the cloud," Mr Gray told 9news.com.au.

Video shows the funnel cloud travelling steadily on the horizon, surrounded by foreboding dark clouds.

Weatherzone meteorologist Graeme Brittain explained why the phenomenon was not a considered to be a tornado.

“It does not appear to have touched the ground,” Mr Brittain told 9news.com.au.

“Funnel clouds generally last for a few minutes, and form at the base of cumulonimbus clouds due to rotating air.”

University crops competition winner takes on the US - ABC Online

The winner of last year's Australian Universities Crops Competition Nellie Evans has just returned from competing in the US universities competition in Kansas.

The fourth-year student, studying Science in Agriculture at the University of Sydney, teamed up with fellow Sydney University student Brett Bushell to go head to head with 50 other teams from around the US.

As well as competing in the US competition, and finishing a creditable 12th, Ms Evans had the opportunity to tour the Kansas Wheat Innovation Center, flour mills, farms and a Feed Technology Centre.

She said the US tour gave her an insight in tackling the challenges facing Australian grain growers.

"Obviously our climate and changing growing season over here is a challenge," she said.

"The Black Sea imports is another issue and the movement of that grain into Asian markets and that is going to be a challenge for Australian...

Preview: Queensland v New South Wales - Green and Gold Rugby

Preview: Queensland v New South Wales

The Bob Templeton Cup is the prize, but bragging rights will be the year-long reward, as the Queensland Reds host the New South Wales Waratahs this Saturday night at Suncorp Stadium.

Each team’s season lays precariously on the edge of oblivion with sole focus now on results in the Australian conference. With wins against the foreign teams a rarity, which Aussie team that makes the finals will be determined largely on when they face off in local derbies.

Form

The Waratahs season is in free-fall after being embarrassed by the (previously) bottom of the table Kings. The Kings were at the end of a draining Australian tour in which both the Western Force and the Queensland Reds managed to run up close to a half century of points against them in their respective match-ups. The Waratahs, in comparison, were lucky to score a very lucky late...

New South Wales Blues Origin prospect James Roberts injured in Brisbane Broncos' NRL win - The Sydney Morning Herald

Blues coach Laurie Daley would have loved to see James Roberts slicing holes in the Penrith defence on Thursday night as he helped pave the way for Brisbane's 32-18 victory over the battling Panthers at Suncorp Stadium.

Less pleasing would have been the sight of Roberts being carried from the field with seven minutes left, suffering from what would later be confirmed as an ankle injury.

The severity was yet to be known late on Thursday night but it was serious enough to warrant X-rays on the damaged joint first thing on Friday morning.

It's another setback for a player that had seemingly got his house in order off the field and was around the edges of Origin selection with the first team to be named in coming weeks.
