OMV public consult coming soon

By hawkeye - Posted on 16 January 2017

Hi All, a heads-up from Hornsby Council I received today:

"Hornsby Shire Council are getting closer to what will be a first phase of public consultation for developments that will restore the former quarry site and the adjoining Old Mans Valley site (containing existing MTB trails) in Hornsby for varied recreation pursuits and am developing a contact list of stakeholders and mailout lists to advise of the upcoming initial consultation phase.

Council may look to extending MTB trails through the combined sites, if that is feasible and if that is what the community expresses they want to see. The first consult is designed to generate some excitement about the possibilities and will serve as a callout for people to let Council know what they would like to see happen in the sites.

A microsite will be launched on the Council website for this first phase of consultation, where we will be seeking submissions from mid-Feb to late March this year, dates tbc."

I've been asked ot be the contact point for nobmob and Sydney MTB.

I will pass on any further information as it come to hand.

Thanks for the heads up - as the closest legal singletrail network to me (and an important area for mountain bikers all around Sydney) I'll be making a submission... A look at Google Maps (or the much better nearmaps) shows the total area is much bigger than just the space occupied by the original network and will present some exciting opportunities in a few years time when the quarry work is complete.
