Ex-Waverton Bowling Club site

Consultation has concluded

North Sydney Council contacted NSW Crown Land (within NSW Department of Industry) when the Waverton Bowling Club went into liquidation, advocating that this parcel of land should revert on a permanent basis to Council’s care and control, like the remainder of the parkland surrounding the Club.

Council has gained a six-month lease (executed on the 7 May 2019), allowing us to carryout initial due diligence on the site as a first step towards a potentially more permanent transfer solution. This involves undertaking a condition assessment of the building, preliminary contamination review of the site, a risk assessment of the grounds and community engagement. This parcel of land is approximately 5,000m2.

The Building Condition Assessment is available in the document library - refer to Attachment 2 of Council Report 24 June 2019 - OSE02.

In June/July 2019, Council sought suggestions from key stakeholders regarding proposed use of the site. A broad range of uses suggested, however, regardless of the preferred use, the unified theme of submissions was that the site needs to remain as public land and meet community needs. Stage 2 engagement seeks feedback from the wider community. Feedback closes midnight, Sunday 15 September 2019.

Before completing the survey review the background information, including the condition assessment in the document library.
