GSV Traffic and Parking meeting – RSL Club Wed 16th Oct at 7pm

Hi Everyone,

Just a reminder about the Traffic and Parking information meeting which will be held tomorrow (Wednesday) evening at the Gladesville RSL Club, at 7pm.
The meeting was originally scheduled to start earlier, but the start time was pushed back at the request of the public. This announcement on the Hunters Hill Council website was updated with the revised start time.
With all the development planned for both the Ryde and Hunters Hill Municipalities’ sides of Victoria Road, getting to and from Gladesville and parking in the area may become significantly more challenging in years to come. This could impact residents, shoppers, parents of school-children, diners at restaurants, and the businesses which rely on adequate parking for their customers.
Come along and hear what the developer has to say, and have your say!
