    Warringah Council is seeking comment on the draft Forestville Park Plan of Management. This Plan of Management covers several parcels of land making up Forestville Park. The draft Plan has been developed through community consultation and identifies community values associated with the reserve. Submissions close 11 June 2012.

    The main issues are:

    • Weeds
    • Tracks and access
    • Private encroachments into bushland
    • Bushland condition
    • Feral animals
    • Stormwater
    • Dumping
    • Habitat values
    • Heritage values
    • Use of the reserve

    Management actions in the plan include bush regeneration, pest control, track consolidation, boundary delineation and improved signage.  The draft ‘Mountain Biking in Warringah: Research and Directions’ paper and the draft Forestville Park POM (prepared by Warringah Council) allow for the retention of two mountain bike trails within Forestville Park – one being a fire trail and the other being an informal track. The draft Plan is not allowing for any further creation of mountain bike tracks.
