Submissions for the revised development of the Rozelle Village plan for Tigers Leagues Club close on Monday, December 10, at 5pm.
The revised development is on public display with submissions to be made to the Department of Planning and Infrastructure.
The Tigers have been part of the Balmain area since 1908 and the Balmain Leagues Club has had its base in Balmain since 1957.
Tigers President Kevin Rooney said the return to Rozelle is not just about the long-term viability of Tigers but about where the community and supporters want to belong.
“It is more than bricks and mortar. It is where we meet; it is the history we share, the place where we live. It is sport – junior and senior; it is part of our community fabric. Black and Gold are just not colours, they are our history,’’ Mr Rooney said.
“We need to get back to Rozelle. We need your support to get the State and local government to remember that this development is about our future. Without the support of Rozelle Village we would not exist today.
“Without Rozelle we have no home. Rozelle Village and Tigers are sharing a journey, if the development is not approved at Rozelle this journey will come to an end.”
