COUNCIL DEFERS DRUG DECISION

CENTRAL Council has deferred a decision for a transitional group home for the purposes of drug and alcohol rehabilitation at Glen Road, Ourimbah, to allow time for councillors to inspect the site.

A report will come to back to the Council for consideration following the site inspection.

Mayor Jane Smith said there had been considerable community interest in the development and 166 submissions had been received.

“This is clearly a sensitive matter for everyone in the community and Council needs to balance its responsibility not only to those living in the immediate vicinity of this proposed facility but also its overall social responsibility to those in the community who need help with addiction,” Cr Smith said.

“Councillors want to better understand the proposed site before making this important decision.”
