ERIC Singleton Bird Sanctuary in Bayswater is safe from developers after being rezoned from “urban” to “parks and recreation” by the state government.

No development was earmarked for the sanctuary, which underwent an award-winning restoration in 2015, but the rezoning closes any planning loop holes.

The move comes after the state government and Bayswater council split the cost of purchasing the neighbouring “Carter’s Wetland”, ensuring that wouldn’t be developed.

The block just south of the wetland, owned by the prominent D’Orazio family, will become a 23-lot Iterno housing development, despite significant local opposition.
