Community feedback sought on Seymour Park

25 March, 2011Posted in: Community

Wingecarribee Shire Council is encouraging all users of Seymour Park to attend a Community Workshop at Seymour Park, Moss Vale on Wednesday 30 March between the hours of 2.30pm and 5.30pm.

The workshop has been organised to gather community feedback on a number of options vital to the future improvements of the park.

Council’s General Manager, Jason Gordon encouraged all park users to attend and have their say.

“Council is undertaking a Plan of Management for Seymour Park and the process is dependent on community input. The consultation will focus on the use and the priority for capital improvements to the park. One of the more contentious items is the possible inclusion of fencing to isolate the dog off-leash area within the park,” he said.

At present Seymour Park is designated as an off-leash dog area and has attracted some adverse feedback from other park users.

“We’ll then take away the input from Wednesday’s forum and prepare a preferred option which will then be placed on public display as the draft Plan of Management”, Mr Gordon added.

The draft Plan of Management is anticipated to be on public exhibition in May 2011. Further comment will be available following the display of the draft plan.

“As with all Council owned community land we’re mindful that the park is used by numerous groups. Subsequently, we’d love to hear from all users on how they think the park can be safely utilised and improved”, Mr Gordon said.

The Community Workshop will be held onsite at Seymour Park, Moss Vale on Wednesday 30 March.

Park users are encouraged to attend at their convenience between 2.30pm and 5.30pm.
