HRAA Meet­ing with Rob Stokes – NSW Min­is­ter for Plan­ning.

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - News -

Re­cently War­ren Wad­dell and I were able to lobby Rob Stokes di­rectly re­gard­ing the pro­posed re­zon­ing of the Hornsby Ru­ral Area as well as the need to widen New Line Road.

Rob promised to help see things through at State level once Hornsby Coun­cil has sub­mit­ted its re­quest for changes to the Area.

Whilst the dis­cus­sion re­gard­ing New Line Road was ro­bust, we do think Rob ap­pre­ci­ated that it was un­fair to ex­pect any de­vel­oper to pay the en­tire cost for the project. How­ever, it does present an op­por­tu­nity for the Gov­ern­ment to have a sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to costs that it would be re­spon­si­ble for in any event.

HRAA is vig­or­ously pur­su­ing both agen­das – Hornsby Ru­ral Area Re­zon­ing and the wi­den­ing of New Line Road.

With the help of Matt Keane and Steve Rus­sell in par­tic­u­lar, we can see the strong pos­si­bil­ity of a good out­come.

We will keep ev­ery­one abreast of the lat­est devel­op­ments and ask that you talk to your neigh­bours and friends about th­ese two ma­jor is­sues which im­pact our area and ask them to join HRAA if they have not al­ready.

The more mem­bers we have, the greater the voice. Tony Jones Chair­man Hornsby Ru­ral Ar­eas As­so­ci­a­tion (HRAA) www.hraa.com.au
