RESIDENTS CONCERNED ABOUT PLANNING

Rouse Hill's future under scrutiny
UPGRADES to local roads and long-term planning for the North West Growth Area were the main issues raised at Blacktown City Council’s community forum at Rouse Hill recently.

Blacktown City Mayor Stephen Bali MP said: “This was a chance for people to have a say about what is important to them in newly developing suburbs.
 
“Council is aware of the challenges people face when they live in an area which is going through a lot of changes,” Mayor Bali said.
 
Residents were briefed on the recent upgrades to local roads and infrastructure in the area, followed by a briefing on the plans for the Australian Catholic University’s campus in the Blacktown CBD.
 
Council used the forum to inform residents about progress on the Riverstone Masterplan as well as upgrades to Hambledon Road and Railway Terrace.
 
Residents were also keen to take the opportunity to raise issues of concern to them and their community.
 
“One resident sought Council’s support to hold a public event while another asked Council to provide further information on infrastructure around Grantham Estate,” Mayor Bali said.
 
“Meeting with our residents and taking on board their questions is an important part of engaging with our community.”
 
Mayor Bali said residents were satisfied that Council continued to engage with residents and face the hard questions, especially in the area of development.
 
“Council understands that planning processes can cause frustrations for some residents but it is important that we continue to engage and consult with residents to achieve the best outcome for the whole community.
 
“The forum gave residents in Rouse Hill the opportunity for face-to-face engagement with Councillors and Council staff on matters that really affect their lives.” Mayor Bali said.
 
Council’s next community forum is in Ward 3 on Tuesday, July 2, 7pm at Tyndale Christian School 58 Douglas Road, Blacktown.
