The Continuing Saga of Albert Ryan Park

Hi to all supporters of this park, you are probably aware that approximately 2000 people signed the petition in June 2016 against the rezoning and reclassification of Lot 10 and Lot 11 in this park .

During this time Albert Ryan Park Committee discovered that Lot 10 was not owed by the Council, in fact the RMS was the owner of this Lot, it has now been discovered that due to a clerical area some years ago Lot 11 is also owned by the RMS.

There are actually 4 Lots of land in this area and they are all owned by the RMS.

In June 2016 the community spoke loud and clear that they did not want this land rezoned and reclassified and the councillors at the time listened.

In this period of time we discovered that in May 2015 the council moved in a block to decommission the toilets in this park.

Clr. Phil Constable has been approached and he has now raised this issue with the General Manager and asked that the current Councillors be given a briefing on this issue as soon as possible.

What is now needed is for the community to support by emailing (, writing (Coucil, PO BOX 99 Moruya 2537) or phoning all of the Councillors and ask that a rescission motion for the decommissioning of these toilets (moved at a Council Meeting 12th May 2015). This can only happen if we can get this item placed on a Council Agenda and we will need as many supporters to that meeting when it occurs.

We, the community, again need to send a loud and clear message to this newly elected Councillors, if anyone has problems with email address or phone numbers of the Councillors please let us know and we will forward them.

Many thanks to all supporters out there
