Box Hill Information Pages
One of my top priorities on Council is to better inform residents of what is proposed for our new release areas. In response to this, the Council team has put together two excellent pages “About the Box Hill Area” and “Box Hill – A Community in the Making”: www.thehills.nsw.gov.au/Building/Road-and-Building-Projects/Sydneys-Growth-Centres
The pages contain detailed information on proposed parks, intersections, roads and reserves as well as future locations for town centres and schools.
If you live in Box Hill, you are highly encouraged to visit these pages via a desktop computer, and keep an eye on the pages as new projects are added periodically, such as the upcoming Equinox Drive Reserve and Hannaford Avenue Reserve.
Kenthurst Park Southern Sportsfield Extension
Council has recently completed the design, to notification stage, of the Kenthurst Park southern sportfield extension. It is proposed to increase the size of the southern sportfield area to accommodate two senior sized playing fields whilst retaining the existing turf cricket pitch. The detail design for the southern field area is anticipated to be completed in December 2020. Details on the proposed design are available through Council’s website.
Dog Park for North Kellyville
The Hills has a high rate of pet ownership, and Council is committing to increasing the amount of off leash dog parks in The Hills. Council is looking at locating a dog park in North Kellyville at either Twickenham Avenue Reserve, Oxlade Street Reserve, Indwarra Avenue Reserve or Barry Road Reserve. Please find out more information through Council’s website or get in contact with me if you have thoughts on the location or layout of a potential facility.
See The Hills This Summer
This summer, Hills residents may not be able to undertake holidays as usual – so I am encouraging the community to see the very best that The Hills has to offer instead. Within our shire’s boundaries lie some of Sydney’s greatest drawcards including the Cumberland State Forest, Bidjigal Reserve, Cattai National Park, Museum Discovery Centre and the Rural North. On your days out, please don’t forget to support our small businesses and retailers who have done it tough this year.
