Meeting with the Minister for Planning

12 Aug 2019 1:09 PM | Sue Hunter Lawrence (Administrator)

After countless letters and meetings yesterday we were granted a meeting with the Minister for Planning to discuss the Riverstone Town centre and a traffic solution for Riverstone.

The process started with a meeting with Blacktown Council to discuss our response to the Town Centre Masterplan. Both Council and the Chamber agreed on solutions to improve the Town Centre but they would have little result without a traffic solution.

Supported by the Mayor Stephen Bali we then took our issue to our State Member Kevin Conolly.

During our meeting with Kevin and Stephen we all agreed Riverstone needs a solution and it could not wait any further.

Taking the lead Kevin secured us a meeting with the Ministers for Planning and Ministers for Transport and off we went to Parliament House.

We all agreed the answer for Riverstone is to fastrack Bandon Rd, Masterplan Riverstone and Marsden Park ensuring we would be equip to support a growing population and investigate the Bypass solution.

The Ministers clearly understood our concerns and we are expecting a positive response in the next few weeks.

Thank you to both Kevin Conolly and Stephen Bali for their support and putting our community first.
