Together, we are planning for the future

Mayor of The Hills Shire, Councillor Yvonne Keane is encouraging residents to join her at Castle Hill’s Heritage Park to have their say on the future of The Hills as part of Council’s pop-up consultation playdates series.

Mayor Keane will join children’s entertainer Sam Moran from the popular TV program, Play Along with Sam, and take children on a time-travelling treasure hunt through the historic venue on Wednesday 12 July.

This engaging interactive event will send children on an active learning journey through time, while encouraging discussions on what residents want to see planned for the future of their region.

“We want to hear from you!” Mayor Keane said.

“Council is gathering feedback that will help inform our Community Strategic Plan – The Hills Future. This is a plan which will help manage growth and change in The Hills over the next 20 years.”

Apart from a treasure hunt through the site of one of Australia’s first-ever Government Farms, there will be crafts, face painting and plenty of singing and dancing for the kids.

Mums, dads and grandparents haven’t been forgotten amongst the day’s events. There will be a coffee van with free coffee available so they can stay energised as they help plan for the future of The Hills.

Mayor Keane said with increasing numbers of families and young people moving into The Sydney Hills, Council was committed to continuing a range of consultation activities to ensure community needs and aspirations were considered as part of a holistic approach to planning for the future.

“People are passionate about their community. This is why I have decided to engage with residents through these pop-up consultation sessions,” Mayor Keane said.

The treasure hunt will happen over three sessions during the day, including a 9am to 11am11.30am to 1.30pm and a 2pm to 4pm.

This event is open to Hills residents and all children must be registered.
