Update to Inyadda Drive Planning Proposal (ex Kylor)

In case you haven’t heard through Facebook, Manyana Matters or the grapevine, there has been an important development with the IDPP (formerly Kylor PP). Following a massive response from the community, the proponents have dropped the proposed addition to the footprint in the north east corner of the block.


The revised proposed footprint looks like this:

Please visit the “Inyadda Drive Planning Proposal” page on this website (under the “Latest Hot Topics” tab) for:

  • further details on the current status of the planning proposal
  • how to get automatic updates from SCC
  • a link to the proponent-commissioned information website on the planning proposal (prepared by GHD, the consultants engaged by the proponents to conduct community liaison).

Preparing for the new “1 hour” RHVA General Meetings!

This is a reminder that RHVA have resolved to shorten RHVA General Meeting running times by putting up reports from RHVA executive committee members and the Yulunga Reserve Committee on the website one week before the next meeting, for your reading pleasure, so that these reports don’t have to be presented on the day.

You are of course able, and encouraged, to ask any questions you might have about these reports at the meeting.

To access the reports:

  • go to the “RHVA Meetings” tab
  • select “Preliminary Reading” from the drop-down menu

See you all at the meeting at 3pm on Saturday 20 July.

Shared status of Manyana to Bendalong pathway

The RHVA would like to clarify that the concrete pathway from Inyadda car park to Bendalong is classified as an inclusive pathway. This means that it is a shared pathway for pedestrians, pedestrians with prams, cyclists and elderly on mobility scooters. Please feel free to refer anyone to this notice, if there is any confusion about this issue.
