Chatswood Mall

Place to be seen

A  Northbridge resident (jn the Mosman Daily of all places) pined that “all agree (Chatswood Mall) is run down“. Well not according to Willoughby Council’s CEO.

Mall

Chatswood centre – criticism unwarranted

 Willoughby City Council’s most recent perception survey of 723 residents contradicts his statement that ‘all agree’ Chatswood is ‘run down’.

On the contrary, more than nine in 10 respondents indicated that Willoughby is an appealing place to live. In fact, 84% of respondents said the appearance of public spaces in the Chatswood shopping precinct were either good or very good. I invite you to visit Chatswood to see for yourself – take in a show at The Concourse, enjoy a meal at one of the many amazing restaurants or bring your family and friends to a festival.

Debra Just, CEO, Willoughby City Council

Council response to bushfires: The recently Mayor reported on this matter. She moved that Council:

The plan was previously exhibited. The report in the Council papers for Monday 10th February 2020 presents the results of the consultation process. Thirty three participants provided feedback through the Have Your Say site and six provided additional feedback direct to Council. The majority of responses received were in support of the Draft Vegetation Management Policy, Guidelines and Draft Part C.9 Vegetation Management, with minor changes. There were only three submissions that did not support the Policy.

Based on submissions the only change made to the policy was  “To enhance canopy cover in the Willoughby LGA

The main issues raised were:

1. Not to all pruning of Public Trees for Views
2. Bush Fire Risk

  4. Repeal the following Policies that have been incorporated into the Vegetation Management Policy and Guidelines, or, are no longer required due to overriding legislation:
