Draft Pittwater Open Space and Recreation Strategy
Just received the following message from Pittwater council:
Pittwater Council is preparing an Open Space and Recreation Strategy which may of interest to your club or association and members.
The strategy will help Council manage its reserves and parks in terms of conservation, leisure and sporting activities. An important part of the project is to understand how Pittwater residents use open space, what they value about it and what can be done to improve it. Council is inviting residents to complete a survey to help them with this process.
Pittwater is unique due to its range of landscape settings - from beaches, waterways, wetlands, escarpments to developed sports grounds and villages. As Pittwater's custodians, a key component of the project will be the protection and enhancement of the natural environment. We will also be looking at how to provide a diverse range of recreational opportunities for people of all ages and abilities appropriate to the natural environment.
With this in mind, the survey focuses on landscape settings. Please take time to consider the landscape settings and their importance, taking into account of your needs, as well as the needs of the community as a whole.
The survey can be accessed at: www.pittwater.nsw.gov.au/consultation
The closing date for the survey is 22 June 2012.
Once the surveys have been received and collated, Council will organise a community workshop to discuss the results and their influence on the planning process.
Residents completing the survey can enter a draw to win a dinner voucher for $150 at a restaurant of their choice.
