MEDIA RELEASE

The user experience of Boronia Park sporting and community precinct and Boronia Park Village is set to be enhanced with a new facility and place making plan for the areas.

Hunter’s Hill Council tonight (12 October 2020) agreed to a process for progressing plans for a sports and community facility, funded through State and Federal grants and Hunters Hill Rugby Union Football Club fundraising, at Boronia Park to a design and development application stage.

The facility is expected to include accessible toilets, new change rooms, additional storage, and a kiosk and community room for use by the sporting clubs, local schools and other community groups.

The purpose of the facility is to provide greater community amenity, enabling people of all ages, gender and abilities improved opportunity to participate, spectate and enjoy organised sport at Boronia Park.

Development of a facility was identified in a Boronia Park Plan of Management, adopted in April following extensive community consultation.

Further consultation on the facility will occur through formation of a stakeholders working group, and for the broader community on a proposed design prior to lodgement of a development application, as well as when the application is placed on public exhibition and as part of the independent determination process.

The facility, constructed on land under which Council has care, control and management, will become a Council asset, managed by Council for the use and enjoyment of both sporting clubs and the broader community. The rugby club will not have exclusive use of the proposed facility, but will occupy it under license from the Council.

Councillors also voted tonight to move ahead with preparing a draft Place Plan for Boronia Park Village.

It comes after Hunters Hill and Ryde councils conducted a community consultation and engagement program, consulting with businesses, residents and key stakeholders, to better understand issues and opportunities in the village precinct.

The area is shared between the two local government areas.

Feedback submitted through the initial consultation included ideas around improved pedestrian safety, street planting and business promotion.
