Following on from our Aged Care report issued in February last year, NSW State Planning Panel have recently refused the following Site Compatibility Certificates on the following properties:

Refused:

Seniors Housing at 663-667 Old Northern Road and 4 Franlee Road Dural 130 bed residential care facility, 472 self-contained living apartments, 44 self-contained living dwellings, community facilities and parking.

Hornsby Council have been petitioning NSW State Planning to halt the approval of Site Compatibility Certificates for Seniors Housing until a clear vision for the rural areas is prepared, including infrastructure funding.
