DRAFT COMMUNITY INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN

We would like to bring your attention to Hunters Hill Council’s Draft Community Infrastructure Plan now on public exhibition and here is the link: https://www.huntershill.nsw.gov.au/community-participation-plan

The Plan has a 10-year horizon, with short term actions and longer term projects built around “three key community hubs – The Village Green, Heritage and Cultural Facilities Hub and Lifestyle and Wellbeing Hub”.  At this stage we are being asked for our views on various proposals that will potentially change significant areas of our municipality.   For instance – in the absence of firm detail as to how the stated intentions for the Village Green (Figtree Park) Hub are going to be realised – the extent and number of facilities to be housed (including Council Admin moved from the Town Hall) plus an extra 1 or 2 new developments and associated parking will obviously have a considerable impact on the area with potential loss of trees and existing green space.

We encourage you to take action by completing Council’s feedback form and, even though it’s mainly about usage of spaces, you can add your specific comments/concerns in the free text question at the end:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdYBNHEo51c4SCDWiWQcaCRhD6-_npF2ve8IwnUyC1lpJJv2g/viewform

It appears that Council is only seeking community feedback via the above form but we can also express our opinions by emailing customerservice@huntershill.nsw.gov.au reference the ‘Exhibition of the Community Infrastructure Plan’.

We feel it’s important to engage with the process and, as this 51 page document is rather difficult to read, a text-only version is here which, at just 20 pages, may be easier to digest.  Changes are being proposed for our beautiful Municipality and it is critical that our voices are heard so that we can all help shape its future.
