At a special meeting of Council on 13th April, Ian Longbottom was elected Mayor and Joe Hasserati Deputy Mayor.

We had intended to invite the East Ward councillors to this meeting so they could meet the community active members of our association.

Unfortunately the Council is having another special meeting on 21st April to consider the present proposal from Woolworths.  Having been a major debating subject in the recent elections, all Councillors, particularly the new ones, are now ploughing through a virtual mountain of papers seeking to digest all the facts about the proposal before further decisions.
Some 80 or so residents attended our special meeting on 19th March to hear the various council election candidates

33 GREENWICH RD ( BILLY BLUE )
The developer has now put in amendments to the original development applications that many will find even worse than the original application.
The lower area that in the original application did not disturb heritage items and left a large area for recreational purposes. It is now intended to have four townhouses and three dwelling houses with vehicle access onto River Rd just west of the River Rd Greenwich Rd traffic lights
If you originally objected to the proposal please look at the changes and again write in to Council with your concerns as it is virtually being treated as a new application
For more information on the revision please contact Annabelle Burley on 9460 7112

WATERBROOK (SUNSHINE HOMES)
Another major development application is for the sale and development of more of Sunshine Homes land which will greatly increase traffic in the Pacific Hwy and Innes St area For information contact Alan Winney on 9438 5776

DUNTROON AVE
This has not yet died, with Auslands appeal due in court shortly.

DISTRIBUTOR NEEDED
After many years of distributing these newsletters, Brenda and Richard Glasgow have moved out of Greenwich. We thank them for their past assistance and wish them well in their move.
This means we now need a new distributor for River Rd, South side from Greenwich Rd down to valley, and Eastview and Wilona Av East.

If anybody can help with the, usually, every two months, distribution please contact either Maryed Hartnell on 9438 1936, or John Gebler on 9436 2874

RABBITS
If anybody has lost two tame rabbits in the Coolabah Av Greenwich Rd area, call Annabelle Burley on 9460 7112
