Latest Community Update - Former Oatley Bowling Club Site

Latest community update - Former Oatley Bowling Club Site

After careful consideration and in response to widespread community feedback, Council is pleased to advise that it will not be proceeding with the planning proposal (rezoning) for the former Oatley Bowling Club site. The proposal for the site would have allowed the community land to be developed for aged care (nursing home) and community facilities.

Council will instead commence the preparation of a masterplan for the site for the purposes of establishing public open space and recreation facilities while also undertaking necessary decontamination works as a priority.

This decision followed a Council meeting on 17 December 2018. The full details of this Council Report are available here

On 15 January 2018, Council received a response from the Department of Planning and Environment acknowledging that the planning proposal has been withdrawn and no further action will be taken.

Preparation of a master plan for the site will commence in 2019 and extensive community consultation will be undertaken to ensure the community can get involved in the planning for recreational facilities on the site.

We monitor all feedback and endeavour to use your comments to improve our website. Please include your email address.
