Hornsby's new councillors to discuss Heritage item 

Among the first items of business for the new leaders will be in relation to Cannon Close, Cherrybrook. 

Residents from the quiet cul-de-sac made headlines in May, when they successfully opposed a sub-division on their street and sought a Heritage Conservation Area (HCA) protection measure.

The HCA proposal caused public debate due to the imitation federation homes being only 20 years old.

Cannan Close Residents and Friends Association chairman, Martin Foxall, said the upcoming meeting would decide whether Cannan Close should move to the next step of the HCA process, and secondly where the street’s sub-division development application is to be approved.

‘‘With a 60 per cent change in council members it is less about a change in attitude and more about them taking the time out to understanding the previous history here,’’ Mr Foxall said.

‘‘[It’s important council] has a long term view of preserving and protecting not just Cannan Close, but all areas of Hornsby Shire that have a valued significance.’’
