PUBLIC EXHIBITION OF DRAFT PLAN OF MANAGEMENT AND CONCEPT PLAN FOR 3 BOONDAH ROAD, WARRIEWOOD
Councillors voted the display this plan for community feedback and will be open for 42 days for consultation.
The Warriewood Valley Section 94 Contributions Plan (the Plan) outlined the need for adequate open space to meet the needs of an increased population resulting from the development of the release area. The property at 3 Boondah Road was identified in the Plan for purchase for future active open space and the Warriewood Valley Open Space & Streetscape Masterplan (the Masterplan) identified this area as open space (sports fields). Council resolved on 8 August 2017 to purchase 3 Boondah Road and purchased the land in December 2017 with the intent to develop the area as outlined in the Masterplan and the Sportsgrounds Strategy (2017). Three months after acquisition, the land was classified as Community Land in accordance with the Local Government Act 1993. A Plan of Management is now required for the site.
A draft Plan of Management and draft concept plan has been developed aligned with the Masterplan and the Sportsground Strategy (2017).
The key features are:
Four lit multi-use hard court netball courts
½ Basketball / multi-use court, lit
57 space car park
Public amenities building
Retention of significant trees
Revegetation with endemic vegetation through the natural area
A habitat corridor link at the rear of the site.
It is recommended that the draft Plan of Management and draft concept plan are publicly exhibited for a period of 42 days. An analysis of public submissions and final draft Plan of Management and concept plan will be the subject of a future report to Council.
