Council calls for community views on Cronulla Park

Logan City Council is encouraging residents to have their say on the type of recreation facilities they would like to see developed at Cronulla Park.

In January this year the Queensland Government announced it would hand the 10.2 hectare site back to Council after Racing Queensland abandoned plans to develop greyhound racing facilities at the Compton Road corner block.

City Lifestyle and Customer Services Committee Chairperson, Councillor Steve Swenson, said Council had signaled its intention for the site to become a home for multi-purpose sport, recreation and community facilities but didn’t have clear vision on what that looked like.

“The site presents an exciting opportunity for a multi-use facility but we also really want to hear from the community about what else people would like to see at the site,” he said.

“Council is currently working on a master plan to guide how the site is developed but the feedback from the consultation process will help us shape the vision with the community.”

Cr Swenson said the agreement with the State Government would involve the relocation of the PCYC from Logan Central to Cronulla Park, supported by a $6.6 million contribution from the State. Council has also recently announced as part of its 2017/2018 Budget a further $6.6 million towards the development of this site.

“This site has tremendous potential to become a community asset that attracts people from across our city and beyond for different kinds of recreational activities and events so I encourage residents to have their say on Council’s website through an online survey and help guide this exciting project,” he said.

Your thoughts on future uses for Cronulla Park can be shared through an online survey.

The survey is open until 5pm Monday 17 July 2017.
