Court rules in favour of Simmer on the Bay restaurant owner over proposed Walsh Bay development

Restaurateur Brigid Kennedy has come out on top after a two year legal battle against the government over the proposed $210 million redevelopment of Walsh Bay, which she argued had not taken into consideration the impact of construction on nearby businesses.

The NSW Court of Appeal ruling is a major setback for the government which has been working on plans to redevelop the wharf area between the Barangaroo headland and Dawes Point Park for the last five years.

Kennedy told The Sydney Morning Herald that she “had everything to lose.”

“I borrowed 110 per cent finance 11 years ago and made this into a great success,” she said. “I put absolutely everything into this.”
