Resolution 1
In response to Coles’ proposed Supermarket Development (D.A. No. 204 0454) in Mulga Road, this meeting calls on Hurstville Council to continue to pursue all avenues – legal, political and otherwise -- to halt the supermarket development, including an appeal to the NSW Supreme Court, AND take out an injunction against Renaldo Plus 3 Pty Ltd to prevent further demolition or construction work being carried out until the Supreme Court appeal is heard.

Resolution 2
In the event that Coles proceeds with its lease in this ill-advised and inappropriate supermarket development, we resolve to boycott the store.

Resolution 3
This meeting calls on the Premier of NSW and the Government of NSW to amend The Land and Environment Court Act to give community interests a heavier weighting in judgments.

It has been stated that Coles will be like a boutique David Jones Food Hall.

Which one: David Jones Food Hall Bourke St, Melbourne is 1,600 square metres and David Jones Food Hall Market St, Sydney is 2,100 square metres.

I thought a boutique size was up to 400 square metres,

I have never heard of David Jones's Food Halls being called boutique.
