Herons Creek Latest News

On behalf of the Herons Creek Heritage Committee, Chairman Martin Parish wishes to acknowledge the assistance and support from Port Macquarie Hastings Council, who have greeted our project with excitement and full support. Council has gone beyond giving approvals to actively assist in a number of practical ways, including with setting the actual signs into the ground at no cost to us.

Recently I (Martin) received a letter from our local state member for the seat of Port Macquarie, Lesley Williams.

Lesley also sent similar letters to Les & Daphne Latham and Bill & Betty Boyd.

It was a real surprise to read the letter and then a copy of the Hansard.

Lesley, thank you for your kind words, and thank you for making the commitment to attend a number of events in Herons Creek over the past few years.

 Many might not know that when Lesley learnt of the community concerns regarding the pending closure of Herons Creek Road, back in 2013, Lesley acted quickly & arranged urgent talks with the Minister of Roads & Maritime which eventually led to keeping Herons Creek Road open for incoming traffic from the south.

Below is the latest reply to the current debate on the proposed waste transfer station for Herons Creek Road, Kew.

Two matters to note. A 'D.A.' is yet to be submitted which allows the members of the community to have a say. Secondly, the allocated budget to tar the road is said to be insufficient to handle the traffic they expect.

The general concerns of the Herons Creek community are, the greater increased movement of traffic on to our local unsealed Herons Creek road. Everyone feels the road is dangerous now since Herons Creek Road was closed to south bound movements. It needs sealing now as most residents have resorted back to using Herons Creek road to head to Kew, to avoid the extra 5 kilometres.
