THE fight is not over for residents whose lives could be turned upside down by Blacktown Council's draft local environment plan.
They will hold a 3pm-5pm protest outside the council building on November 20.
Residents will then attend a council meeting to call for a motion to rezone property back to residential and to consult residents individually when the council needs to acquire homes.
The council seeks acquisition rights over more than 800 homes, including homes at Rooty Hill and Mount Druitt.
It's reviewing more than 600 public submissions and a meeting to consider the draft LEP was expected by the end of the year, according to its dedicated website.
Blacktown resident Indira Devi has since been told that before December was not possible and that council needs to seek advice from the state government.
"It has been difficult for my staff to give a definitive response to the timing of the report back to council," assistant general manager Glennys James wrote last month.
"Many hundreds of pages of work is involved in the report and it will only be submitted to council once I and the general manager are happy with its contents."
Mrs Devi recently set up the Blacktown Residents Voice group for affected residents.
"We want to show council they can't dictate to us," Mrs Devi said.
"We feel they're treating us like Third World citizens and don't think we're capable of standing for what we believe in. Our homes are not for the council to take as they please."
Mrs Devi's is the only house on her side of Kent Street affected by the rezoning.
"Our back patio is sinking but we don't know whether to spend money and fix it, in case council wants to take it," she said.
"The stress and uncertainty is deteriorating people's health," she said.
A council spokeswoman said two teams of town planners were working on the report, which would be submitted to council as soon as it was complete.
‘‘If at all possible, the report will be submitted to Council by the end of this year,’’ she said.
‘‘If the work on the report has not been completed by December, the next available council meeting will be in February 2014.
''Council is aware that many members of the community are interested in the report and would like to attend the Council meeting.
''[It] will consider other options for the locations of the meeting, including Bowman Hall.’’
