Council invites the community to a public hearing about a proposed change to the community land category for Mackay Park, Batemans Bay.
Council is proposing to apply the ‘general community use’ category to Mackay Park replacing the existing ‘park’ category.
Council say that the change will allow a wider range of uses at the site while maintaining the current uses.
Council is required under the Local Government Act 1993 to prepare plans of management for its community land. The draft plan outlines how Mackay Park can be used, developed and managed. It includes how leases and licences or other interests are granted, and it determines the scale and intensity of development.
Council is proposing to apply the ‘general community use’ category to Mackay Park to replace the existing ‘park’ category. This would provide more certainty and flexibility for the proposed Regional Aquatic, Arts and Leisure Centre development at Batemans Bay
The draft plan features a range of actions centred around Mackay Park’s primary uses now and in the future. These include rugby league, swimming and events.
It seeks to integrate the new Regional Aquatic, Arts and Leisure Centre with existing facilities at Mackay Park and the Batemans Bay town centre and to:
promote public access and use
improve vehicle and pedestrian access
provide direction on the inclusion of public art.
The former bowling club site is not part of the draft plan.
