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/participate/cip/

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.

However to ensure your views are heard, email your feedback (subject Draft Community Infrastructure Plan 2020) to the General Manager and Councillors at: rosswilliams@huntershill.nsw.gov.au; bencollins@huntershill.nsw.gov.au; elizabethkrassoi@huntershill.nsw.gov.au; jimsanderson@huntershill.nsw.gov.au; justinemclaughlin@huntershill.nsw.gov.au; zacmiles@huntershill.nsw.gov.au; miscamblel@huntershill.nsw.gov.au

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.

    This not a plan. It has no specifics, costings or alternatives offered and considered. It is someone’s solution but it is not a good one.
    Village Green: It is nit big enough to accomodate housing, commercial spaces and a library. Who needs a library in 2020? Has anyone surveyed how many people use the Gladesville library from HH for our $750k?
    Town Hall: If the refurbished offices are able to be rented commercially why are they not good enough for Council to use? Why move form the historic centre of HH? Justification completely lacking. The Town Hall is already a Cultural Centre. If you add more and bigger events where are people going to park?
    I repeat. This is not a plan it is a wish list and should not be approved.
