Glenorie Progress As­so­ci­a­tion News

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Community News - By Di Coxon-El­lis

Bo­ral Con­crete Sch­webel Lane Up­grade: The scale of the up­grade has sur­faced as a con­tentious is­sue for many of the GPA mem­bers and Glenorie Vil­lage res­i­dents. Traf­fic dur­ing school hours and the pro­posed long op­er­at­ing hours (seven days a week from 6am to 10pm week­days AND able to op­er­ate on a Sun­day) con­tinue to be a worry! Dust emis­sions are a ma­jor health is­sue also and all these com­bine to cre­ate con­cern re­gard­ing the pos­si­ble ef­fect of chil­dren at the lo­cal schools.

An­other prob­lem now is Bo­ral ma­chin­ery op­er­at­ing out of cur­rent con­sent hours. Con­cerns are still about the height of the pro­posed 21m si­los and Bo­ral needs to pro­vide an artist’s im­pres­sions of likely sight ef­fects from the north, east and west.

Bo­ral dis­trib­uted their news­let­ter to res­i­dents close to the Batch­ing Plant. In this news­let­ter they state that the plant is op­er­at­ing close to ca­pac­ity 20,000 tonnes per an­num, how­ever, in­for­ma­tion given at the GPA meet­ing was that the cur­rent out­put is 800tonnes pa. The pro­posal is for a stag­ger­ing 52,000 tonnes per an­num!

This let­ter and pre­sen­ta­tion is on our web­site at http:// glenorieprogress. org.au/ along with a dis­claimer stat­ing that the GPA does NOT sup­port the up­grade. The As­so­ci­a­tion is act­ing as a con­duit to dis­trib­ute the in­for­ma­tion to the res­i­dents of Glenorie so you are armed with in­for­ma­tion to make a de­ci­sion whether to ac­cept or op­pose the ex­pan­sion of the cur­rent con­di­tions.

Note that the DA is to be lodged soon with The Hills Shire Coun­cil. So we again urge all mem­bers to sub­mit their con­cerns and spread the word to ALL who may be af­fected by the up­grade. You will have an op­por­tu­nity to have in­put into the DA dur­ing the sub­mis­sion pe­riod, so don’t waste the op­por­tu­nity!

You can LIKE our face­book page and we will ad­vise ev­ery­one when the DA goes in.
