Mulgoa MP Tanya Davies joined St Clair resident Mr Ben Williams to announce the permanent closure of the laneway between Francis Greenway Avenue and Maurice Street, St Clair.
Mr & Mrs Williams and their family, as well as other residents, have faced home intruders, robberies, vandalism and anti-social behaviour which led to other families moving away.
“We would like to sincerely thank our local member Tanya Davies for all her support and effort on our behalf. We would also like to thank Penrith City Council and the Public Domains department,” said Mr Williams.
The anti-social behaviour that plagued the surrounding neighbourhoods has stopped since the closure of Maurice Lane.
“This is a fantastic outcome for these families and this community,” said Tanya Davies MP.
“The closing of Maurice Lane has changed our neighbourhood for the better. Our little piece of Heaven, St Clair, is safer because there is no Laneway. In Maurice Street the kids can once again play in their now peaceful front yard and in the cul-de sac,” Mr Williams said.
If you or someone you know is facing anti-social behaviour in your neighbourhood, report it to the Police on 131 444.
