MEDIA RELEASE

Community organisations and volunteers have expressed their thanks to Hunter’s Hill Council following continued support for environmental and social initiatives.

Councillors voted unanimously at a meeting tonight (Monday June 22, 2020) to continue two separate property licence agreements with the Happy Hens Social Enterprise and Sydney Community Services.

The agreement with the Happy Hens includes a section of Gladesville Reserve, formally known as Henley Bowling Club, where the enterprise has established a community garden.

Happy Hens President Emma Paxton, in a written submission read to tonight’s meeting, thanked the Council for its support.

“We have a fantastic edible garden that’s an asset to the local area,” she said.

The meeting also heard messages of support from numerous volunteers associated with the garden, as well as nearby Riverside Preschool, whose students and families have been involved in many events and learning opportunities at the garden.

Mayor Mark Bennett said it was great to see the enterprise and garden doing so well.

“We’re very fortunate that we have people like this in the community,” he said.

Sydney Community Services, a local not-for-profit organisation that helps residents to live a quality and independent life in their own home and community, was granted a licence agreement to continue occupation of premises at 42 and 46 Gladesville Road, Hunters Hill.

At tonight’s meeting the Council also adopted its 2020-21 Operational Plan, a highlight of which is a $4.7million capital works program.

The projects include footpath and road works, kerb and gutter renewal, stormwater renewal and work on community buildings.

The Operational Plan, which includes the organisation’s budget, longer-term financial projections, fees, rates and charges, was adopted following a public exhibition period.
