You Spoke, We Listened

During the exhibition of the Hornsby Park Landform DA (concluded on 13 January 2020), submissions were received that led to changes to reduce the extent of works that will be undertaken.

In particular, concerns were expressed about tree losses and potential habitat impacts, and support expressed for the preservation of the volcanic diatreme that is expressed in the eastern quarry cliff face.

As a result, changes were made resulting in further reduction to the extent of works that will be undertaken on site to create Hornsby Park.

The DA with improvements is currently being assessed. The independent planner received all submissions, including those received during the DA exhibition and those additionally received as a result of the changes and following community engagement activities undertaken during the exhibition period. The planner’s advice will be reported to the Sydney North Planning Panel before Approval to proceed with the Landform Earthworks can be gained.
