Tunks Park Plan of Management

Project Information

Council has engaged a multi-disciplinary consultant team lead by Environmental Partnership NSW to prepare a combined Masterplan/ Plan of Management (PoM) for Tunks Park.

This dedicated Masterplan/Plan of Management for Tunks park will:

  • Establish an overall vision for the park; and
  • set out how the park will be used and managed by Council for the next 5-10 years.

Community Engagement

A range of community engagement activities are being facilitated by engagement specialists Straight Talk in November and December 2017. This includes a two-stage workshop, online survey and online discussion forum. There will be further opportunities to be involved in this project from early 2018.


Stakeholder Workshops

A two-stage stakeholder workshop was held, and presentation documents are available below.

Part A – Scoping Phase Workshop

Part B – Options Phase Workshop (please choose one)


Online Survey & Discussion Forum

The online survey and scoping phase online discussion forum closed on 3 December 2017.

You can still provide feedback on the key issues and potential options presented at the workshops by:

  • Participating in the options phase discussion forum - this is hosted on Council’s Your Say webpage and will be open until Sunday 21 January 2017 (5 weeks).


Council Resolution

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

  1. THAT Council proceed with a Plan of Management that excludes floodlighting and artificial turf for Tunks Park.
  2. THAT the oversight of the Plan of Management process be returned to the Division of Open Space and Environmental Services.
  3. 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 Tunks Park but no further work will be undertaken to explore the potential for food lighting and/or artificial turf at Tunks Park.

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