MEDIA RELEASE

Hunters Hill local roads and infrastructure works will receive a half a million-dollar boost under a Federal Government grant program.

Hunter’s Hill Council resolved tonight (Monday 14 December, 2020) to utilise the $455,733 from the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program Extension to fund a range of eligible projects.

These include:

  • a new pedestrian refuge island on Manning Road;
  • a street tree planting program;
  • footpath reconstruction;
  • stormwater drainage inspections and relining of failed pipelines; and
  • road resurfacing.

The works are expected to be completed by 30 June, 2021.

The Council also tonight resolved to grant a licence to facilitate the lodging of a development application for the proposed restoration of The Priory and its potential future use as a restaurant and café, with associated community uses.

A draft Hunters Hill Local Housing Strategy was endorsed for public exhibition.

The draft Strategy is a plan for housing Hunters Hill’s population from now until 2041.

It considers population growth, housing needs and trends and situational and environmental constraints presented by the area.

It proposes how local housing needs are to be meet and managed in the right locations with additional housing opportunities, while addressing dwelling targets set by the NSW Government.

Local housing strategies are required to be prepared by all NSW councils to meet the requirements of the State and regional planning framework.

Public exhibition is due to commence after the 2020-21 festive period.

Councillors tonight strongly supported a State Government proposal for a complete remediation of land in Nelson Parade – a former uranium processing site – with removal of all contaminated materials and the area validated for future use.

It follows advocacy over many years by the Council and community members.
