Proposal for Half Penny Avenue Reserve (A1)
Proposal for Half Penny Avenue Reserve (A1)

Mayor of The Hills Shire, Councillor Yvonne Keane is encouraging local residents to have their say on a proposal for a new park, Half Penny Avenue Reserve, in Kellyville.

The prospective development is part of The Hills Shire Council’s Section 94 (Developers) Contributions Plan and will see Half Penny Avenue Reserve develop into an exciting new public recreational facility.

The new 4000 square metre park is bordered by four existing streets – Half Penny Avenue, Water Creek Boulevard, Friesian Avenue and Graydon Way, Kellyville – and will cater to the growing needs of the local community.

Once completed, the reserve will primarily cater for local families within a short walk of the park.

Key features of the proposed reserve include:
• A kick-about space;
• Children’s play-space;
• Picnic shelter;
• Bench seats;
• Shade trees and native plantings;
• Perimeter and access paths;
• Sandstone steps;

Mayor Keane said she is asking residents for feedback on the project.

“It is important for everyone to have an opportunity to have their say,” Mayor Keane said.

“It is essential that Council understands the aspirations of local residents in order to ensure the best decisions are made for the community.

“We must remain vigilant about listening to our community and then provide services that dynamically meet the needs of the ever-changing environment in which we live,” Mayor Keane added.

The proposal can be viewed on The Hills Shire Council website (www.thehills.nsw.gov.au) under Major Plans on Exhibition.

Alternatively, you can contact Council’s Landscape Projects Officer, Scott Sidhom via email on ssidhom@thehills.nsw.gov.au or by telephone on 9843 0507.

The public exhibition and submission period will run until February 22.
