Community feedback being reviewed


Thank you to everyone who contributed ideas and comments to the online map or completed the Off Road Cycling Survey.

Your feedback is currently being reviewed and will inform the development of a draft Open Space and Recreation Strategy.

Consultation with special interest groups has recommenced after being placed on hold while our staff and community concentrated on managing the risks of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

We will let you know when we move into the next stage of community engagement.

We love being outside on the Northern Beaches

With the online mapping exercise, we asked about the places you love and where there are areas for improvement. This includes parks, bushland areas, beaches, walking and cycling tracks.

You can click on the map below and view the ideas and comments provided by the community. The map also shows works already planned or in progress.
