Request for further letter be sent from BMPCA to ESC stating the strong community view and expectation was that the “open space” in the concept plan for COP was not for housing.
A wide ranging discussion followed on the need to push for a regional sporting complex with Council and State government, not Captain Oldrey Park, except for Netball, but an area with more space such as Gundary Oval or the Rosedale development. Need other sporting bodies on-side, and discussion with district sporting associations. Suggestion to invite Matthew Neason to speak to the next meeting on recreation matters.
