MEDIA RELEASE

Hunter’s Hill Council has tonight (Monday 19 April 2021) progressed plans for a sports and community facility and recognised an outstanding contribution to the area’s heritage conservation.

Plans for a Sports and Community Facility at Boronia Park will progress, following a resolution of the Council at its meeting tonight.

A business case for the facility at Boronia Park was received and noted, and proposed licence terms accepted for Hunters Hill Rugby Union Football Club, which is proposing to make a capital contribution to the project.

The proposed facility would be managed by Council for the use and enjoyment of sporting clubs, schools and the broader community and provide accessible toilets, new change rooms, additional storage, a kiosk and community room to address deficiencies in existing facilities.

Hours of use would be limited to 10pm for any licensee or casual hirer, with hire by individuals for private celebrations, such as weddings and birthdays, unavailable after 5pm.

A report on Gladesville Reserve’s playing field was received and noted, with the matter to be referred to Council’s Sustainability Advisory Committee for review, advice to be sought from consultants, and a revised business case brought back to the Council.

The Council also tonight recognised the contribution of community member Tony Coote to the heritage conservation of Hunters Hill, through about 50 years’ service to the organisation’s Conservation Advisory Panel as a representative of the Hunters Hill Trust.

Mayor Ross Williams presented a plaque to Mr Coote, who received a standing ovation from the chamber and public gallery, noting his remarkable effort and dedication to heritage in Hunters Hill.

Agenda items including a Draft Community Infrastructure Plan (Property Strategy) and Draft Hunters Hill Local Housing Strategy Outcome of Public Exhibition were deferred to a later meeting.
