Do you have a suggestion to make on issues in Beecroft and Cheltenham that you wish the Civic Trust to look at?

Established in 1964 & Australia's first - Beecroft-Cheltenham Civic Trust Inc [ABN 41449599554] - marked 50 years of service in 2014.
The Beecroft-Cheltenham Civic Trust was later formally incorporated under the NSW Incorporation Act (1984) on 5 December 1988. The Trust has achieved much since its foundation, to put the case to Federal, State and Local Governments, as well as to Statutory Authorities, for the survival of what remains of our passive and defenceless natural beauty, and for citizens who wish to continue to enjoy this natural beauty and other desirable civic amenities.
The Trust also aims to preserve the existing village character, heritage values, and the natural beauty of the Beecroft and Cheltenham district. You can find out more about our aims and objectives in our constitution.

“..., thank you for the offer to provide a short video. I feel that I cannot communicate effectively what I want to say in a video and more importantly I am very strapped for time. My preference is to see you all in person at the March 2 forum.[Epping Club, 6.30pm] Please encourage your members to attend.”

NSW Transport Minister Berejiklian has effectively gifted to Hong Kong MTR the publicly-owned Epping to Chatswood line, as part of the North West Rail link. This line will close for downsizing for seven to twelve months, causing major inconvenience to the travelling public.
If each train currently carries 800 people, every 15 minutes between Epping and Chatswood, that will require 16 buses every fifteen minutes to replace each train. Recent media articles have shown the bus journey could take 58 minutes (Epping to Chatswood at 8am) compared with around 17 minutes by train.
When Minister Berejiklian was questioned by the Trust regarding the 14,000 commuters per day inconvenienced by the rail line closure, she said: “get used to it”.
The Trust has sent its submission, which is accessible at:CLICK HERE.Read more...
