Is Du­ral about to be­come the next Cher­ry­brook?

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Front Page -

2016 is turn­ing out to be the year de­vel­op­ers make their move for res­i­den­tial sub-di­vi­sion in and around Du­ral. Re­ports on pages 30-33 show the lo­cal coun­cil's and the NSW State Gov­ern­ment, are be­ing lob­bied by prop­erty de­vel­op­ers to change the zon­ing on large parcels of land. Once re­zoned, the de­vel­op­ers can then build a range of low, medium and high den­sity houses and apart­ments. . By far the big­gest re­zon­ing is the South Du­ral precinct (the area bounded by Old North­ern Road, Hast­ings Road and New Line Road). This rep­re­sents 240 hectares of land, and will con­sist of ap­prox­i­mately 3000 dwellings. The next largest re­zon­ing ap­pli­ca­tion re­lates to the prop­er­ties along Old North­ern Road to­wards Gal­ston. These are noted with a suf­fix (1) in the list below. This re­zon­ing ap­pli­ca­tion leaves around eight ru­ral prop­er­ties in the mid­dle of the de­vel­op­ment, sep­a­rat­ing the "north­ern site" from the "south­ern site" See map on page 30. Re­ports on pages 30-33 give a brief de­scrip­tion of what is pro­posed for each of the ap­pli­ca­tions. Res­i­dents need to de­cide if this type of res­i­den­tial sub-di­vi­sion is what you want for Du­ral. If it is, then that's OK, but if its not, then you need to de­cide what to do to fight the de­vel­op­ments. This is a strong Lib­eral seat. Lib­er­als hold the bal­ance of power in Hills and Hornsby Coun­cils, State and Fed­eral Gov­ern­ments. We have an elec­tion loom­ing. What bet­ter time to write to your State and Fed­eral mem­bers to ex­press your views. You can also join Face­book and lo­cal res­i­dents groups or the lo­cal Du­ral Cham­ber of Cham­ber. As a pa­per, we can only sug­gest op­tions. The de­ci­sion is yours. You can also write to us at editorial@gal­ston­com­mu­nity.com.au and we will pub­lish your let­ters.
