The NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure will publicly exhibit the revised proposal for four weeks until Friday, August 24 2012.
Member for Strathfield, Charles Casuscelli RFD MP, has been a key ally to residents in their discussions with ACU. Mr Casuscelli has advocated on residents' behalf to Ministers, Departments and the ACU itself and calls this a win for Strathfield and people power in general.
"We have done a lot of work to get to this point," Mr Casuscelli said. "It is a testament to the hard work and spirit of our community that we have been listened to.
"I have spoken on this important issue at many public meetings, as well as taking local residents concerns directly to the Minister for Planning to ensure that the substantial community opposition to ACU's proposal is understood.
"Whilst we should be happy with what we have achieved the job is not done. We must ensure that as many submissions are made to this proposal over the next four weeks as possible.
"The ACU has come part of the way by offering increased parking on site and fewer student places to ease congestion but if we are to ensure that traffic and parking issues on Barker Rd and surrounding streets are taken seriously for more needs to be done.
"In my opinion ACU's response to substantial matters concerning student numbers and transport movements continues to be deficient.
"We are not just talking about minor issues here, we are talking about the most fundamental components of which the ACU's proposal is based. Issues remain confused and in some places commentary by ACU appears contradictory."
Mr Casuscelli is encouraging all residents to make a submission. The Department of Planning and Infrastructure has announced that revised plans can be viewed at their offices, at Strathfield Council or on the website. Submissions will also be made available for viewing on the website.
After the department completes its assessment, the proposal will be referred to the independent Planning and Assessment Committee (PAC) to determine. The PAC will hold a public meeting as part of its determination, details to come.
Mr Casuscelli has kept residents up to date with proceedings on this issue through mail outs, comments in the media and public meetings and street stalls. He plans to continue this course of action.
"One of the great successes of this campaign has been the two way communication between my office and local residents. I will be continuing that through a mail out to those who are living in close proximity to ACU explaining how they can be heard on this issue.
"However, submissions are open to all. If you have something to say please say it. If you are unsure how you can get involved then contact my office," Mr Casuscelli concluded.
