David Coleman MP, Federal Member for Banks, held a community meeting in Riverwood on Tuesday August 16 to discuss the State Government’s proposed Riverwood Plan.
“The Plan proposes to increase the population in the Riverwood area from 1,500 today to more than 6,000. This is completely inappropriate and would significantly increase traffic congestion on roads that are already congested”, Mr Coleman said.
The meeting was very well attended, with strong opposition to the Plan amongst local residents.
“It was good to see so many people coming out to discuss this important issue. The community meeting made it clear that there is a very high level of opposition to the Plan. It is time the State Government rule out the Plan and come up with something more sensible for the area”, Mr Coleman said.
