We are proposing to upgrade the sportsfield at Northern Beaches Secondary College - Cromer Campus to enable the use of the grounds outside of school hours.
In 2017 the Northern Beaches Sportsground Strategy identified a shortage of sportsfields on the Northern Beaches. In the short term, this shortfall will be met by using existing sportsgrounds more efficiently and by increasing capacity through actions such as installing lights, improving drainage and reconfiguring the fields.
The strategy also identified opportunities to use school sites for community purposes. As a result we have entered into a 10-year licencing agreement with the Department of Education to use the Northern Beaches Secondary College (NBSC) Cromer Campus for community sport.
As part of the agreement we will be improving the sportsfield facilities with the installation of four new light posts for additional evening training and competition opportunities.
The lighting proposal is part of the sportsfield upgrade that will include improvements to drainage, irrigation, new turf, repositioning of the goal posts and installing water fountains.
Feedback on the proposal was invited between 24 June and 24 July 2022. We received 49 online comments.
Comments are now closed, feedback is being reviewed and will be considered prior to lodging the Development Application.
The community engagement report will be published on this page in the coming weeks.
