A recent press release advised that 1600 homes and a shopping centre had been approved for Wilton. We moved into Horsley (previously West Dapto) in 1997. There were only a few homes past Homestead Drive and Bong Bong Road shops. Since then, over 10,000 homes have been built in Horsley, Brookes Reach, West Dapto and Wongawilli areas. It is envisaged that 10-15,000 more homes will be built in the area, including Kembla Grange, Wongawilli etc in the next 10 years or so. It is very noticeable of developments taking place, with new roads and homes being built almost daily, there are no shops or schools at this stage being built to cater for the population explosion. Population will increase by some 15,000 in the next decade and Dapto Mall is saturated, no parking and continual congestion on Bong Bong Road. Not sure what council, State Government & developers have planned for a major shopping centre, which is desperately needed in West Dapto, also schools to cater for the children moving into the area. Maybe someone has answers.
