Draft Mackay Park Plan of Management to go to Councillors

At Tuesday's Council meeting Councillors will be asked to approve a recommendation to exhibit the Draft Mackay Park Plan of Management The draft POM outlines how the land can be used, developed and managed, how leases and licences or other interests are granted and determines the scale and intensity of current and future use and development on the land. The report to Councillors recommends the category of ‘general community use’ for the whole site. This recommendation is to support the existing and proposed primary uses of Mackay Park, being for a range of public recreation purposes, events, visitor information services and a Regional Aquatic, Arts and Leisure Centre. This report recommends that the draft POM be placed on public exhibition for 63 days from 12 December 2018 to 12 February 2019. During the public exhibition period, Council states that it will consult with key interest groups and conduct an independently chaired public hearing to seek community input into the draft POM. Following public exhibition, a final POM, taking into consideration the results of the public hearing and issues raised in submissions, will be prepared and submitted to a Council meeting in March 2019. Primarily the draft POM authorises Council to investigate and enter into the most appropriate management arrangements for the Regional Aquatic, Arts and Leisure Centre. The draft POM also authorises Council to enter into negotiations regarding the existing, and where appropriate, new leases and licences with community or commercial operators for one or all of the following components of the new centre (subject to the outcomes of the detailed design process and following a tender process):  Aquatic centre  Café and retail space  Front entrance and foyer space  Auditorium  Gallery and exhibition space  Wet and dry arts workspaces  Rehearsal/dance studio  Meeting rooms  Kitchen and storage facilities  Outdoor public plaza and leisure spaces  Gymnasium  Wellness and health rooms  Occasional child care facilities. The draft POM also authorises Council to enter into leases or licences, where appropriate (and also subject to the outcomes of the detailed design process for the Regional Aquatic, Arts and Leisure Centre) for the following activities:  Mini-golf  Electric vehicle charging stations
