New Lynbrook park is just poetry New Lynbrook park is just poetry
Lynbrook estate residents have again shown their panache for creating names and putting them on the map. They have penned the name Banjo Paterson Park for the estate’s sprawling and lush park-land, just months after successfully paving the way for a significant part of Lyndhurst to become Lynbrook. The new park name was recently adopted by council and the Geographic Place Names Committee will now be advised. A second park at the estate has been named Towerhill Park by residents and will be advertised shortly.
Residents push council to create a new suburb Residents push council to create a new suburb
More than 50 people turned out at last Tuesday night’s Casey Council meeting to support a proposal to establish a new suburb named Lynbrook. Under the proposal, the suburb would incorporate both Lynbrook Heights and Lynbrook estates, now divided by the South Gippsland Highway into two separate suburbs, Hampton Park and Lyndhurst. The proposal has the overwhelming support of the residents, with 93 per cent petitioning the council. Future residents have also given their support through proxy votes that were presented with the petition. Lynbrook Residents Association president Mike Parry said a strong, separate identity had already been established among the residents in the estates. “We believe the township of Lynbrook has already been born,” Mr Parry said. “We do not believe that we are either a farming community or part of a community that is already developed and established and identity over the past 30 years,” he said. Mr Parry said a village shopping strip had already been planned by the council, and Victorian Minister John Pandazopoulos had proposed that the Lynbrook railway station be built in the next two years. “In addition to the railway station and shopping centre, we will have pre-schools, primary school, health centre, milk bar, veterinary clinic, retirement village, parks, children’s play-grounds, sports oval and a feature lake and wetlands area,” he said. “What more can we say to convince (council) that Lynbrook is an evolving township?” Sue Smith, a mother of two, agreed with Mr Parry, saying one of the reasons she and her husband moved to the estate was the “great community feeling“. “There is a real sense of belonging at Lynbrook,” she said. “When you walk down the streets everybody smiles at you and say hello. There’s the constant sound of kids playing and there’s the real feeling of being safe.” If the proposal is accepted the suburb will be bounded by Dandenong-Hastings Rd, Thompsons Rd, the South Gippsland Highway and Hallam Rd. Two objections were lodged, one of which has since been withdrawn. The Council was to consider the submission last night.
Residents object to airport relocation Residents object to airport relocation
Several Hampton Park residents voiced strong objections to the relocation of Casey airport to Lyndhurst, at a meeting of the Hampton Park Progress Association last week. Two hundred people attended the meeting at the Progress Hall to hear guest speaker, Royce Horwood, convener of the relocation project. Mr Horwood was invited by the Progress Association to explain the size and function of the proposed airport and to answer questions put by residents. He said he was keen to work alongside local progress associations and wanted to establish good relations with residents before the planning proposal goes to Council. Formal planning applications will begin next month and will be lodged with the Cranbourne Council by Christmas. “That is the appropriate time for objections,” he said later, “but we want to make the fats about the project clear now, before the plans go to Council.” The meeting was chaired by the President of the Progress Association and ling-term Hampton Park resident, Ken Reidy, who strove to allow Mr Horwood to be heard amongst spirited outbursts from concerned residents, who numbered more than half those present. The proposal is for a 1200 metre airstrip to take planes up to twin-engined 12 seaters, a 150 bed hotel, a convention centre, a country club and museum. The developers envisage a commuter service to Tullamarine. The 155 hectare site, presently zoned light industrial, would be fully developed within four years at a cost of $130 million. The and is bordered by the South Gippsland Highway, the Dandenong Hallam Road and the Cranbourne railway line. NOISE POLLUTION: The residents expressed concerns about safety and noise pollution and mentioned that schools were in,proximity to the flight path. “The children of Hampton Park deserve a safe, noise free environment,” one resident, Mr Frank Potter said later. Mr Horwood said the proposal would generate a $10 million turnover and would bring enormous economic benefit. In the early stages the airport would be no busier than the Berwick airstrip and eventually would carry only one tenth the air traffic at Moorabbin.
