This week, the Hornsby Shire Council letter-dropped the Dangar Island community with brochures entitled 'Help us to plan for the future of Brooklyn'. The brochure -see pics below- provides a link to the discussion paper and online survey. If you are unable to get to your postbox, you can access the discussion paper and online survey by heading to the dedicated page at the Hornsby Shire Council website.
As per our post on 16th April, this is stage 1 of the community engagement by the HSC. Since September 2020, the league committee has been collaborating with the Brooklyn Community Association to research and promote collaborative and inclusive processes on community consultation and engagement. Together both community groups have been in discussions with Hornsby Council on how to provide a circuit breaker to divisive views between our communities.
Please note that an HSC staff member will be available (by appointment only) on 8th May in the Community Hall to assist people with completing the online survey. All details regarding times and contact information are included in the brochure below.
Ana for the League team.

Published: 18 April 2021 Released by: Deputy Premier The state’s largest ever clean-up of its shorelines and rivers, following the recent floods and storms, is well underway.
The statewide clean-up will see crews using innovative technology and aerial surveillance markings of where debris and waste is located up and down the coast. Deputy Premier John Barilaro said crews have already made a significant start by mapping the debris and waste discovered submerged in our rivers, on shorelines, and in the sea. “They have already covered an immense area from the Victorian border to north of Coffs Harbour,” Mr Barilaro said. “So far they have tagged more than 1000 items such as parts of caravans, chemical drums and containers, agricultural waste, large hay bales, cars, buildings etc, so we know where this needs to be picked up.” Environment Minister, Matt Kean said the recent floods and storms had a significant impact on water quality and reminded the community to be careful of debris in the water and to report large waste build up on any public lands. “The clean-up will take time and we ask people to be patient but more importantly ask them to remain safe, whether they are involved in the clean-up or using their local waterways and beaches,” Mr Kean said. Members of the community can assist the clean-up of their local area by reporting flood debris in local rivers and beaches to the Environment Line on 131 555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
