July 13 News Update

Changes Proposed for Huntingdale Park Development
The application has now been lodged. A special Forum meeting will be arranged for the developer to explain the proposal so that the community can make an informed assessment. We will advise the date of the meeting when we have it.

Kerb Extension Planned for Corner of Alexandra/Albert Streets
We are pleased to report that Council has allocated funding to construct a kerb extension on the south-eastern corner of the intersection of Albert and Alexandra Streets. The works are proposed to mirror the kerb extension on the opposite south-western corner of the intersection and will improve pedestrian accessibility and safety.

Albion Park Rail Bypass Project
The contract to design and build the bypass has been awarded to Fulton Hogan. Motorists using the bypass will be able to avoid up to 16 intersections and the only sets of traffic lights between Bomaderry and Heathcote.

Electric Vehicle Charging Network
The NRMA remain interested in locating one of their EV Charging Stations in Berry in an appropriate site. They are evaluating options and seeking Council support to organise community consultation.

Bangalee Motel DA
Council is conducting its assessment of the development application and we will inform the community when the date for its review by the Development Committee is announced.

Road Closure between Coolangatta Road and Gerroa Road
The road closure is in place until late-July to allow culvert replacement works. Works will then be completed on the widening and pavement aspects of the project.

National Tree Day – Sunday 26 August
Berry Landcare will be working with National Parks to plant trees in a section of Seven Mile Beach National Park on the edge of Commonderry Swamp adjacent to Campbells Run from 10 am to 1 pm, followed by a barbeque. Please email berrylandcare@gmail.com for more information.

Station Masters Residence
The Berry community overwhelmingly supported the Conservation Committee’s Petition to help save the SMR from demolition with 3,665 signatures and letters from community groups. Local member Gareth Ward enthusiastically backs the call to preserve the SMR and will personally hand the petition to the Minister for Transport and Infrastructure. There are viable options for the use of the Residence if RailCorp wish to keep the property and restore it. Alternatively there are offers to buy the property, restore it and use it.

Next Forum Meeting is 16 August 7.30pm at the School of Arts
