Sports and Recreation Precinct - Update

Project Update and Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

Due to the continued growth in enrolments at the Mosman Park Primary Schools and Kindy, as well as the continued increase in use of, and demand for access to, the playing fields at Mann Oval, Davis Oval and Nash Field and Alf Adams Pavilion, the Town began a process of planning and consultation about the future use of the Sports and Recreation Precinct so as to accommodate community needs.

In 2018, the Town engaged the services of architects to develop a draft plan for the Precinct, and commenced a process of community consultation, and we thank all of the stakeholders who took part in that process for their input.  During the consultation, the Town heard loud and clear concerns expressed about the size and shape of any building/s; the importance of vegetation and greenery including the retention of mature trees; issues about the location of, and access, to the site; the usage by all patrons – local or otherwise - and funding, to name a few.  The purpose of this info sheet is to answer some Frequently Asked Questions and provide an update on the status of this project.

1. What is happening to the Sports and Recreation Precinct plan that was consulted on?

The original concept itself was a starting point and it created a conversation about what was important to the community. Based on this, the original concept will be revisited and other options considered for the area.

2. How will any works be funded?

In order to progress this project, the Town will work with stakeholders such as the Department of Education and Department of Local Government, Sports and Cultural Industries as well as nearby schools and clubs to ensure facilities in the area are fit for purpose and affordable to the community over the long term.  Any major upgrade to facilities at the Precinct will be dependent on external funding support.

3. What are you considering now in relation to buildings?

Nash Field Pavilion is nearing the end of its useful life, and Council will be required to make a decision in the near future about how to best progress this issue.

It was clear from the feedback that the concept in terms of its size, scale, and location of the building was not acceptable to the community. Any new pavilion needs to be smaller, and located in a position that does not split Mann and Davis Ovals. We also heard that the community valued the existing Alf Adams Pavilion and kindy buildings and any future proposal by the Town should seek to minimise the impact on these.

4. What about the vegetation and green spaces?

Among the things most valued by the community of Mosman Park are its trees and the green areas. Any future proposal needs to ensure that green areas within the Town’s reserves are retained and preserved.  When considering future options, the Town will seek to minimise any damage to existing vegetation.

5. Who will be the beneficiaries of any future plans?

The Town’s Sport and Recreation Plan identified the strong demand for sporting facilities, and the benefits from consolidating these facilities while balancing this access with maximising the use of our green spaces and providing access for all. The Town’s priority continues to be the provision of facilities to accommodate grassroots and junior sports, balanced with availability for the general community to access and use green space.

6. If the usage of the area increases, what about traffic?

We have heard that the primary access off Hope Street for any future development was not supported. Any primary access to facilities will continue to be from Victoria/Solomon Street.

 7. What will the future plan be?

We have met with the Department of Education to assess their interest in participating in a renewal of the Nash Field Pavilion. Should any options become feasible and worthy of consideration, further consultation will occur with local residents, ratepayers and current users, however, given the complexity of this issue, this is unlikely to occur until at least 2020.
