Council calls Community Meeting to discuss Wilton’s future

Posted on: 27.04.2018

In response to the recent rezoning of the Wilton South East Precinct by the NSW Government, Wollondilly Councillors will head to Wilton for a community forum followed by an extraordinary Council meeting on Monday 30 April to discuss the future of the area.

Mayor Judith Hannan said, “Council is deeply concerned that the decision to rezone is premature, while details on the delivery of critical infrastructure such as health care, public transport and schools remain unclear.”

“The Department of Planning and Environment has not yet demonstrated how adequate local employment opportunities for our future residents will be secured or how valuable koala habitat will be protected.”

“Council is calling for the NSW Government to immediately halt any further decision on Wilton New Town until there is a clearly demonstrated commitment to address these unresolved issues,” she said.

Wollondilly Council is inviting the community to be involved in their advocacy campaign to make Wilton “a great new town.”

The community meeting will be held at Wilton Community Centre at 20 Broughton Street, Wilton from 6.30-8.00pm on Monday 30 April, followed by the extraordinary Council meeting at 8:00pm.

Residents who wish to raise an issue at the meeting can submit their questions or comments online on Council’s website by 12pm on Monday at https://www.wollondilly.nsw.gov.au/council/meetings/community-forums/online-community-forum-question-form/

Any questions that are not covered at the meeting, due to time restrictions, will be answered afterwards via an email or letter.

Community members who are unable to attend the meeting can also find out more information and provide their comments by visiting Council’s Engage.Wollondilly website http://www.engage.wollondilly.nsw.gov.au/
