  • Final Concept Plan Adopted

    11 months ago

    The final concept plan for the North Curl Curl Community Centre and surrounding parkland was adopted by Council at its meeting on Tuesday 9 August 2016.

    The plan includes a community garden, community nursery, skate area, nature play, BBQ and picnic facilities, external toilet, car park, landscaping and improvements to the community centre building.

    A more detailed design process will be undertaken in 2017-18 to further refine certain elements of the project, in particular the accessibility and connectivity of the site and the skate area. There will be further community consultation when this occurs.

  • Final Concept Plan for North Curl Curl Community Centre and surrounding parkland

    11 months ago

    A final concept plan is being reported to Council on Tuesday 9 August at 6:30pm, requesting adoption. The meeting will be held at Mona Vale Memorial Hall.

    Following public exhibition of the draft concept plan, and in response to feedback received from the community, a number of changes have been made. Most significantly is the addition of a council-run community nursery which will be co-located with the community garden. The second addition is to ensure that there is an appropriate buffer between the skate area and Alan Newton Reserve, in order to protect the environmental values of the reserve.

    Overall the submissions received showed strong support for the proposed mix of facilities that the concept plan offered – namely the community garden, skate area, nature play, external toilet, BBQ and picnic facilities, car park, landscaping and improvements to the building.

  • Community Garden Proposal

    about 1 year ago

    During stage 1 of consultation, council received an application for a community garden to be established on the site. The application was supported by 80 submissions in favour of a community garden in addition to two petitions with a total of 226 signatures. Due to the strong community support that was evident, a community garden has been included in the draft concept plan.

    Curly Community Garden Incorporated have submitted a concept design for how they envisage the garden could be designed. Note that, if approved, Council will work with Curly Community Garden Incorporated to refine the design and ensure that it is well presented and accessible.

    The community garden would remain open for the public to walk through, view and sit within, however, garden plots would only be available for garden members to use. Members of the public would be able to join Curly Community Garden Incorporated should they wish to make use of garden plots. The draft concept plan proposes to include a publicly accessible nature play area within the community garden.

    The application for a community garden will be assessed simultaneously with the draft concept plan. Submissions close 1 July 2016.
