Council Resolution

At its meeting on 20 November 2017, Council considered a Question without Notice and resolved:

  • THAT Council proceed with a Plan of Management that excludes floodlighting and artificial turf for Tunks Park.
  • THAT the oversight of the Plan of Management process be returned to the Division of Open Space and Environmental Services.
  • THAT Council makes a public commitment to all residents, ratepayers, friends and users of both Tunks Park and Anderson Park that artificial turf is not a matter for consideration in either park.

In accordance with this resolution, the appointed consultant team will continue to work on developing a dedicated Masterplan/Plan of Management for Anderson Park but no further work will be undertaken to explore the potential for artificial turf at Anderson Park.

The project will be transferred to and overseen by Council’s Open Space and Environmental Services Division in early 2018.
