It was great to attend Bella Vista Farm on Australia Day and celebrate the contribution of our local community through our Australia Day awards. I congratulate our awards recipients and thank them for their ongoing service to our community.
Council has had a large response from the community in regards to the Mirvac plan for 600 units and town homes at the IBM site in West Pennant Hills.
It is clear that the community want as much protection for the forest and protected species as necessary. I am opposed to the Mirvac plan and voted against it each time it has been raised at Council. I will continue to voice the concerns of our community on this matter going forward.
It’s great to see many people wanting to be part of The Hills and it’s important that Council continues to provides the facilities and maintain the environment that we have known The Hills area to offer.
On this term of Council, I will be advocating for the delivery of new community facilities and services to meet our growing needs.
It’s important that Council invests in facilities such as swimming pools, libraries, synthetic sports fields and community spaces and that Council delivers footpaths, bike paths, recreational space and a multi-functional theatre.
We also need to make sure that the Liberal State Covernment does its part and delivers on much-needed infrastructure such as transport, schools and hospitals.
We live in a wonderful and diverse community that I am extremely proud to be a part of. I was recently honoured to be at the launch of The Hills Chinese Business Association in Rouse Hill.
The association will be an excellent support and wonderful resource to Chinese speaking business people in The Hills. I wish the association all the very best.
Happy Chinese New Year!!
