From The Desk of Matt Kean Member For Hornsby

From the desk of Matt Kean: Bushfire Season

By Matt Kean MP, The NSW State Government’s proposed changes to the planning rules that are currently before us is a serious threat to life in semi-rural villages such as Dural, Glenorie and Galston.

All the work Hills and Hornsby councils have done, together with their communities to set the character of the rural amenity whilst allowing for appropriate development, will be disregarded.

In more positive news, I was very pleased to be part of the officially reopening of the upgraded Galston Aquatic Centre on 3rd February. The community has waited a very long time for this highly valued public pool to be available once again and it is now an impressive modern facility.

Finally, I am pleased to see Hornsby Council moving forward with their Galston Village Public Domain Plan. Galston’s shopping area is in desperate need of some attention and council’s plan is about to go out for public exhibition. I encourage residents to provide council any feedback they have to these plans.
