THORNLIE MLA Chris Tallentire gave the public a chance to hear about the future of Gosnells at his Get Gosnells Going forum on Thursday.

The event gave local residents a chance to hear about the council and State Government’s long-term vision for Gosnells and addressed concerns about the City.

The audience heard from a panel of experts, including City of Gosnells chief executive Ian Cowie and urban regeneration manager Anthony Denford and the Education Department’s John Fisher.

The City of Gosnells representatives spoke about their long-term vision for the Gosnells town centre and the improvement plan in place for the train station precinct around Lissiman Street.

The panel also spoke about the growth of schools in the Thornlie electorate and potential long term plans for the Thornlie South Metropolitan Tafe campus.

A lively audience also asked questions about plans to address issues surrounding the heritage-listed Cargeeg Bridge, Fremantle Road works, CCTV and school parking.
