Convenience returns to Glenorie. You might not need to travel all the way to Dural to fuel up the car or get a tin of petrol for your mower if Mr and Mrs Shore’s application for a service station and 12 industrial units is successful.

GLENORIE has missed the convenience of a local service station for many years. The plans submitted include 12 industrial units which should also encourage further local business and employment opportunities. The accompanying landscape plans, if executed well, should ensure the site is not an eyesore. The plans include trees and mass plantings. The site is elevated and prominent at the entrance to Glenorie Village, so we are keen that the build and landscaping are tasteful and sympathetic to the semi-rural surrounds. You can view the DA via The Hills Shire website, application number: 817/2019/HA. The GPA welcomes more business, services and employment in the Glenorie area.

Glenorie Progress Association continues to monitor development applications that will affect you and the community. We are also proactively developing wider plans for community infrastructure that can bring together both Hornsby and The Hills Shire councils as well as the state government. If you would like to become involved, we would encourage you to join the GPA and assist us in developing plans and contributions to the planning authorities. We are will also review the Hornsby Council Rural Lands Vision with the dedicated Hornsby Councillors who regularly attend our meetings.

It is really encouraging that there have been numerous reports of koala sightings in the local area. It appears that koalas are finally returning to the area after the 2002 bushfires. If you do hear or see koalas please report them to Patricia Schwartz (Pat) at the GPA. The Environment Centre continues to run the local stream watch and will be coordinating two community awareness days in 2019. If you are interested or would like to be involved, please contact Patricia Schwartz (Pat) at the GPA via [email protected].
