A Plan of Management for the Drummoyne Oval Precinct was adopted by Council in October 2008. The Drummoyne Oval Precinct consists of Drummoyne Oval and Taplin and Drummoyne Parks. Bayswater Street forms the northern boundary of the precinct and Cometrowe and Thompson Streets mark its southern perimeter. Council is considering amendments to the Precinct’s Plan of Management as a result of the recently-announced Federal Government funding of $5.3 million to improve community, player and spectator facilities and a further proposal to increase broadcast lighting at Drummoyne Oval. The proposed updates to the Plan are now on public exhibition until Thursday, 6 August 2009. This public exhibition is an important stage of community consultation on this project. The draft Plan of Management can be viewed at the Canada Bay Civic Centre in Drummoyne, Five Dock Library, Concord Library or on Council’s website. Written submissions on the draft plan are to be addressed to the General Manager and received by 6 August 2009.
