Hornsby Council General Manager, Steve Head, presented the need to improve Galston with pedestrian safety and traffic management, which is imperative in the new plans. Hornsby Shire Councillor Warren Waddell, spoke about the need to ignite discussion­s and the need to engage the community and make public and private space work together for a better Galston Village. There were many more thoughts on the night but everyone at the meeting was in agreement in wanting to see improvemen­ts for this community space. The council has received four tenders and the process continues through 2019 with further community consultati­on and collaborat­ion. The designs will be produced by mid-2019 and constructi­on during 2020-2021. An exciting time for the Galston Village, so keep up to date on further meetings. Thursday 8th November.
