On behalf of residents we work for the maintenance of Ku-ring-gai’s built and natural heritage and the enhancement of its existing character and amenity.
What will the development being proposed within 400 metres of the stations look like? No setbacks. No trees. No conservation areas.

Proposed changes to Housing Policy will affect large parts of Ku-ring-gai!
The NSW Government’s Proposed Housing Policy is now available for review. This policy will increase housing density on the railway corridor and urban centres. It does not protect Heritage areas, increases building heights, allows apartments in R2 single dwelling zones while ignoring biodiversity, support services and amenity issues. Importantly, it severely limits the rights for resident’s concerns and complaints.
Ku-ring-gai Council held an information session on 31st January summarising its impact on Ku-ring-gai. Click HERE to see the recording. Please take the time to read and complete the survey in the LINK below or make a submission. Deadline for the Survey is 19 Feb, submissions to NSW Planning is 23 Feb.
