Urban sprawl at Moss Vale

We will see developers looking at outlying areas including the Blue Mountains which has
similar problems. Department of planning estimates that 7000 additional homes could be provided
on the mountains, which is ridiculous and totally disagrees with the Blue Mountains City
council’s estimates.
Witness the Catherine Hill Bay project which will suffer severe water issues and stress the
Commuter systems. The Tillegra dam, which was intended to provide water to these areas
is now unlikely to be built.
Urban sprawl is now encompassing what were peaceful havens for retired and semi-retired
residents. If population growth is not controlled, this problem will worsen.
