Draft Plan of Management for Glenbrook Park - Deferred to May meeting

over 2 years ago

Blue Mountains City Council's approval of the Plan of Management for Glenbrook Park was deferred at the last Council meeting on Tuesday 28 March.

A motion was moved by Councillors Greenhill and Christie 'that the Council defers Item 19 Glenbrook Park Plan of Management and Master Plan for adoption, to allow the Council to be briefed on:

• The need for a bund or wall of earth around the oval;

• The likelihood of a flood and the reasons for mitigation;

• The impact on trees; and

• Any impact on the size of the oval.

The draft Plan of Management has been amended to strengthen the protection of the trees and to alter the approach to flood mitigation.

The amended report and documents is now available on the Council website, this website and for inspection in hard copy for inspection at Council's Libraries and Offices. See the documents to the right to view the document.

The revised Glenbrook Park Plan of Management will be presented to the Council Meeting of 2 May.
