Galston Shop­ping Cen­tre Up­grade

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

Galston has been named as one of the Town Cen­tres to re­ceive a sig­nif­i­cant make-over through the pub­lic do­main plans that Hornsby Coun­cil is go­ing to cre­ate.

The pri­mary goal of these plans is to cre­ate at­trac­tive meet­ing places where peo­ple can gather and so­cialise. The pub­lic do­main plans will set out de­sign prin­ci­ples, which will then be im­ple­mented ei­ther through cap­i­tal works by Coun­cil or through agree­ments with de­vel­op­ers.

“We’re not just talk­ing about putting in a few park benches, this is re­fur­bish­ing the pub­lic ar­eas of the town cen­tres from top to bot­tom,” Mayor Rud­dock said. “The plans will in­clude a range of im­prove­ments such as up­graded paving, con­sis­tent street light­ing and ex­panded pub­lic ar­eas with greater op­por­tu­ni­ties out­door din­ing.”

The ar­eas iden­ti­fied as be­ing in most need of pub­lic do­main plans in­clude Hornsby (both west and east side), Pen­nant Hills, Beecroft, Asquith, Galston and Cher­ry­brook.
