LIGHTS ON AT GLENHAVEN INTERSECTION!
Well we did it! The Glenhaven intersection traffic lights were finally switched on in May 2019.
I want to thank everyone for your patience in waiting for this long overdue piece of infrastructure which has been well received. It has reinforced my belief in perseverance paying off.
My thanks also to The Hills Shire Council who backed me in advocating for improvements to this intersection (cnr Old Northern Road and Glenhaven Road) and also to Ray Williams MP, Member for Castle Hill who was able to assist in contributions from the Berejiklian Government by joint funding of the project.
With the growth in North Kellyville in recent years, this intersection was under a lot of pressure and the final job has been worth waiting for.
SECONDARY DWELLINGS IN RURAL AREAS
After public exhibition of the changes that your Council proposed to increase the size of secondary dwellings that can be built on rural land, I am pleased to tell you that this matter has progressed to Department of Planning and Public Spaces for their concurrence.
The changes recommended are seeking to increase the liveable space of a secondary dwelling to 110 square metres plus an additional 20 square metres for garage space.
I expect a decision from State Government will be in approximately six months and if it is agreed to, it will mean that The Hills Shire Council will be leading the way in changing a local planning control that gives rural land owners more opportunity to build a decent sized secondary dwelling on their land.
I will update when the matter is finalised.
