Se­niors Hous­ing Pro­posal for Glenorie

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

A Site Com­pat­i­bil­ity Cer­tifi­cate has been re­quested from NSW State Plan­ning for a Se­niors Hous­ing de­vel­op­ment at 47 Cairns Road, Glenorie, con­sist­ing of 33 self-con­tained dwellings, as­so­ci­ated com­mu­nity room, pool and ten­nis court. (See lo­ca­tion on map).

The Coun­cil Pre-lodge­ment Meet­ing Com­ments Let­ter says "Coun­cil raises ob­jec­tion to se­niors liv­ing de­vel­op­ment at the sub­ject site as the de­vel­op­ment would be in­con­sis­tent with the ob­jec­tives of the ru­ral zone..."

As it’s Glenorie’s first se­nior hous­ing de­vel­op­ment we showed the plans to lo­cal res­i­dents in­clud­ing some close to the pro­posed de­vel­op­ment. The ma­jor­ity of those who viewed the plans seemed to look upon

it with ap proval. One res­i­dent even com­mented “Oh that's so much bet­ter than that huge multi-storey de­vel­op­ment at Quarry Road. That's much more fit­ting for Glenorie, and some older res­i­dents on acreage would re­ally like to stay in the area. I hope it gets ap­proved”.

We will keep the com­mu­nity up­dated as the ap­pli­ca­tion pro­gresses.
