Engagement history

Proposal to categorise site as Park

The NSW Government sold land on Wyatt Avenue, Belrose (previously owned by NSW TAFE) to Council in March 2019 on the conditions that it be classified as Community Land under the Local Government Act 1993 (NSW) (LG Act) and Council develop an open space, public recreation facility on the site. The parcels of land were classified as Community Land upon the transfer to Council.

Community land is required to be categorised under the LG Act. It is proposed to categorise the site as Park (consistent with the core objectives for the Park category in section 36G of the LG Act) in order to facilitate the use of the land for a bike park and public recreation. We also need to amend the Generic Parks Plan of Management (PoM) – former Warringah to include these parcels of land.

At its meeting on 15 December 2020, Council resolved to place the proposed amendment to the Generic Parks Plan of Management (PoM) – former Warringah on public exhibition and hold a public hearing.
