Artarmon Bowling Club site renewal - Citizens Panel - Registrations Open

Willoughby City Council is progressing plans to bring the former Artarmon Bowling Club site into community recreation use.

On 24 July 2017, Council resolved to establish a Citizens Panel that will consider future options for the former Artarmon Bowling Club, and the cost of upgrading/maintaining the current building. Demolition of the building is not supported and is not part of the Panel’s considerations.

The establishment of a Citizens Panel follows broad community consultation undertaken from 1 May to 16 June 2017. More than 400 responses were received on the future of the site, with many suggestions for new uses for the former Artarmon Bowling club building and the greens. The Citizens Panel will be led by an independent facilitator and will provide recommendations to Council in December 2017.

Once the future of the building is determined by Council, the landscape design brief for the former Artarmon Bowling Club greens and Artarmon Reserve (to be known as the Artarmon Parklands) can be finalised and further community consultation will be undertaken in early 2018.

We are inviting interested members of the community to apply for the Citizens Panel which will have up to 15 people.

A maximum of four evenings meetings for the Panel are scheduled for September/ October 2017.

The Council report from the 24 July 2017 and further background information can be found in the document library.
