Specific Issues in Central Ward:

Traffic: specific and proactive Council actions are needed such as traffic engineering and fast tracking other links like Bagdally Road and Liz Kernohan Drive to address

  • Narellan Road congestion
  • Waterworth Drive safety. This road is now being used as a link road onto Narellan Road by Spring Farm residents to save time. However this road is not designed as a link road which makes it more dangerous especially during school zone times.

Bike tracks:  Fragmentation of the bike tracks is a major issue and one which Peter McLean is well across. If it was safer to cycle in Camden people would be healthier and reliance on the car reduced.

Trees: The current Council has an inconsistent tree policy with poor planning and bad management which wastes our money.  Inappropriate trees are planted which grow too big and rip up paths and driveways. Council could have avoided the problem by better tree choices and planning.

Dog parks: Pet ownership in Central ward is very high but Camden Council only has 4 dog parks, none of which are Central ward
