The Community Engagement report outlines what we heard from the community and stakeholders as part of the proposal to develop a concept design for a new sports amenities building at Jamieson Park. It will replace the building that was destroyed by fire late last year.
We envisage that the building will remain as the home of Narrabeen Lakes Sailing Club with storage and public toilets.
We consulted with you between 16 August and 12 September 2022 about what you would like to see on the site and what the design should include so that it meets the needs of the community.
We received a high level of interest in the project and heard a wide range of suggestions and ideas including:
- Increased boat and equipment storage
- A multipurpose indoor space with a balcony or veranda
- Separate amenities for sports clubs and the public
- A kiosk or café with a kitchen
- A home for the sailing club with facilities for other water sports
- Improved access to the water from the building
The feedback received will form the basis of a list of preferred facilities / amenities to be included in the design brief for the design consultants to produce concept plans.
These plans will be shared with the community in the next stage of consultation on the proposed design.
The facilities or amenities to be included in the final design will be subject to further community consultation, stakeholder feedback, project funding availability, and planning, environmental and design constraints.
How can we improve the former building so that it meets community needs?
