Input from the Pottsville community is being sought to help develop a new Open Space Masterplan for 6 key areas in the popular Tweed coastal village.
Residents are being asked to participate in a short 5-minute survey to help develop a plan that will guide the improvement of public open spaces and recreation opportunities in Pottsville.
Six key areas are the focus of the survey, including Pottsville Environment Centre, Pottsville Memorial Oval, Anzac Park, Phillip St Reserve, Ambrose Brown Park and Hardy Park North.
Council’s Manager Parks & Active Communities Murray Smith said Pottsville was a beautiful coastal town that was well-loved by the local community and enjoyed by the larger Tweed community and holiday visitors each year.
“Pottsville already has some great playgrounds, BBQ facilities, walking tracks, sports fields and tennis courts but it’s time to take a look at the key spaces we have, see what is working well and think about what we can improve,” Mr Smith said.
“We want to hear from a wide range of the Pottsville community so we can rethink how we use the 6 key open spaces and plan some recreational facility upgrades that will benefit the whole community including the youth. We want to hear from as many local residents as possible, including local businesses.
“The project is at the very early stages of the planning process, so this is the best time to put your ideas forward.”
Some ideas that have already been proposed by local representatives include a pump track, a skate park or elements of a pump track and a skate park that would work alongside each other.
This is in addition to a nature play area, tennis courts, walking tracks and other features that connect with the uniqueness of the area.
“This is your chance to have your say and provide input into the future direction of Pottsville’s central open spaces and to help us get it right,” Mr Smith said.
