Statement Regarding Proposed Samantha Riley Drive Zoning

Suggestions in media outlets today that I have been silent on the proposed re-zoning of 301 Samantha Riley Drive are incorrect.

 I have been in discussions with the Mayor, Councillor Greg Burnett, regarding this re-zoning proposal.

 Further, I have expressed my opposition to any re-zoning which would allow for developments of 25 stories at that site.

 I have referred all representations directly to Council and will remain in contact with Councillors and the community regarding this issue.

 This matter is a decision for The Hills Shire Council, and I am confident Council will deal with this matter professionally and appropriately, as it has done in the past.
