Sportsfield strategy
Thursday, 1 June 2017

Northern Beaches Council has released a 15 year strategy to meet the shortfall of sportsgrounds, with community comment now invited.

Council Administrator, Dick Persson AM said it is clear from submissions the community supports the need for more sports fields on the Northern Beaches to meet an increasing demand for fields.

In response, Council has developed a 15 year strategy to improve and increase capacity.

The Strategy includes a plan to provide certainty to Warringah Golf Club by seeking tenders for a new 20 year lease for the southern half of Warringah golf course, together with the Warringah Recreation Centre and North Manly Bowling Club (District Park), and a separate but linked lease to 2022 over the northern nine holes, with three, five yearly extension options at the discretion of Council.

A final Draft Sportsground Strategy report is to be presented to the July Council meeting.
