Beaches plan addresses future needs

Published: 16 May 2018

The Northern Beaches Community Facilities Strategy has been recommended by the Sport and Community Service Committee for adoption by Council.

Incorporating master plans for both the Smithfield Leisure Precinct and the Trinity Beach Sporting Precinct, the strategy includes a number of key recommendations and features.

Among the proposed actions are the establishment of a new trail head for the Smithfield Mountain Bike Park, and improved active travel networks to link schools, businesses, leisure and sporting precincts, parks and the beaches.

Under the Smithfield Leisure Precinct master plan, future improvements include an active recreation loop, expansion for the Marlin Coast Recreation Centre with dedicated gymnastics space and outdoor courts, an adventure playground, and an outdoor stage and event space.

The Trinity Beach Sporting Precinct master plan includes improved pedestrian and cycle links, public open space, a second entry point into the precinct, and improved parking.

Future relocation of horse sport users to other existing facilities would strengthen the sustainability of the clubs.

A recent public consultation period resulted in 79 submissions, many of which related to the wallaby population in the Trinity Beach Area.

As a result, the strategy recommends creating a wildlife corridor via Moores Gully Parkland, which would allow the State Government to continue with its Macropod Management Plan.

The strategy has been developed to meet the future needs of the growing Northern Beaches area.
