Council meeting 9 March – Flagstaff St setback (and other issues)

Hi Everyone,

This email is going to the people who made submissions to Hunters Hill Council in support of the reinstatement of a setback (of 4m) for GSV along Flagstaff Street, with deep soil plantings – assisted by our online tool. Thank you for having taken the time to do so.
We attach the paper prepared by Council Staff, for Councillors to consider at tomorrow (Monday) night’s meeting. We are disappointed with the recommendation, and hope that Councillors will support a numerical control for the setback in the DCP.
We were also disappointed to see that one submission was printed but the remaining 31 submissions were only tallied, and the people who made the effort to send a submission were not credited for having done so. All but 1 of us is unrecognised, other than knowing we are part of the 32 submissions of this type.
Also attached is a letter which was submitted to Council by the developer, with which we strongly disagree.
Tomorrow night’s meeting will be interesting. As well as this setback issue, Councillor Gary Bird has submitted a Motion that an Interim Heritage Order be placed on the cottage at 10 Cowell Street, and two other motions that go to accountability, and transparency.
If you have time to come to the meeting tomorrow night, I’m sure Councillor Bird will appreciate your support.
Kind regards,
– team at Gladesville Community Group
