Draft Synthetic Sportsgrounds Management Plan

We invite you to provide your feedback about the draft Synthetic Sportsgrounds Management Plan, which will apply to the following synthetic sports grounds:

  • Northbridge Oval – Sailors Bay Road, Northbridge
  • Thomson Oval- Reserve Road, Artarmon
  • Chatswood High School Oval, Eddy Road Chatswood
  • Gore Hill Oval – Pacific Highway, St Leonards (completion due late 2018)

In December 2017, Council endorsed the draft Plan for consultation with residents who neighbour the Council synthetic sportsgrounds.

Your comments on the draft Plan are invited by completing the Survey questions below. The draft Plan and Council Report of 11 December 2017 is located in the Document Library on the RH side.

Background

Synthetic grass sportsgrounds have provided significant benefits to the sports playing community by allowing better use of the highly competitive sportsgrounds space available in the Willoughby LGA.

Synthetic grass allows more hours of sports use without damaging and impacting the turf surface.

Council adopted a Management Plan in 2011 when Northbridge Oval was converted to synthetic. The Plan covered matters such as hours of use, public holiday bans, parking, and noise. The Management Plan has now been updated to incorporate the additional synthetic sportsgrounds of Thomson Oval, Chatswood High School Oval and Gore Hill Oval.

On page 3 of the Council Report, Figure 1 provides the differences between the current and proposed bookable times at each of the ovals covered by the draft Synthetic Sportsgrounds Management Plan.

Council has previously consulted with the main sporting groups using these sportsgrounds. This feedback helped to inform the draft Synthetic Sportsgrounds Management Plan.
