About Us

Save Thirroul Village is a community advocacy group that was formed to voice the community’s opposition to Thirroul Plaza Pty Ltd’s proposal to redevelop the Thirroul Plaza site. The group was initially called Thirroul Community for a Sustainable Town Centre, but has since adopted the name Save Thirroul Village.

Nick McLaren Interviews TfNSW about Thirroul Traffic Plans

TfNSW does not seem to make the link between them rejecting their own proposals for clearways and continuous lanes of traffic through Thirroul, sacrificing LHD Street Parking and the Thirroul Plaza DA inflicting exactly the same thing! How can a state government agency abandon their own plans, and then accept a set of plans, equally damaging to the Thirroul town centre, proposed by a private developer with private interests?
