16-14-1 Naming of new suburbs in Blacktown City - KEEP "ELARA" IN MARSDEN PARK

This petition had 902 supporters

As a local resident in Marsden Park, the boundary variations impact my community and where I live today. I am requesting the boundary variation outlined as Suburb Area 2 - namely the Stockland Elara community - be reconsidered inclusive of Suburb Area 3 (retaining Marsden Park as its suburb name). There are thousands of residents already committed to this suburb and identify their home as Marsden Park.

As you are already aware a number of residents in the proposed Area 2 fall into the Elara Estate. While we understand council concerns of developers renaming suburbs, we are similarly concerned about the investments we have made, wholeheartedly, into Marsden Park and Elara as a community within Marsden Park.

Our key areas of concern are as follows:

-Being included in future upgrades of infrastructure and community services, in particular transport as a part of the suburb of Marsden Park.

-Protecting our long term investments, as sold to us, in Marsden Park.

A  number of residents are concerned about the fact that they invested their money and future at Marsden Park, as an established suburb with the inclusion of the Business Park, industrial area and proposed key services planned in the future, such as a train line.

‘Keep the Elara Community in Marsden Park’

 31St August 2017 is the last date and I will send this petition.
