  • Kensington Park Plan of Management adopted

    10 months ago
    Kag 0819h

    At the Ordinary Council meeting on 25 October 2016, Council resolved to endorse the Draft Plan of Management for Kensington Park. The Plan was written following a detailed consultation with local residents, and at the meeting Councillors responded to additional community feedback by deciding to remove the ping pong tables.

    The Plan of Management will guide future improvements to the park over the next 10 years, and each year Council will allocate funds to those future works identified in the plan. This is an exciting step forward for the long term management of the park and Council may consult with the community again as proposed projects within the plan are allocated funding.

    · 48% of participants rated the ease of launching as very poor.

    · 48% of participants rated the ease of launching as very poor.

    · There is unsafe access to the water for other users, such as kayakers, stand-up paddle boarders, divers and swimmers.

    · There are conflicts between boat ramp users and other users.

    Suggestions for improving the ramp:

    · Separate access to the water for other users, such as kayakers, stand-up paddle boarders, divers and swimmers.

    · Low-key improvements to the existing boat ramp to ensure safe access to the water for recreational boating users.

    · Low-key improvements of existing facilities that are sympathetic to the unique character of Long Bay, Malabar Beach or the Malabar Headland.

    · A low speed zone for water craft and navigational lighting within Long Bay.

    · New picnic and parkland facilities, including seating, picnic settings, bins and viewing areas.

    · A restricted parking zone and improved lighting to help mitigate anti-social behaviour.

    Where to from here?

    Council will be developing concept design proposal options for improvements of the Malabar Boat Ramp based on community feedback and suggestions. Initial concept design ideas and options will be exhibited for community feedback in the near future. Thanks to all involved in the consultation.


  • Maroubra Bay Floodplain Risk Management

    11 months ago

    Randwick City Council is responsible for identifying and managing flooding to reduce the risk of flooding on people and properties. Consequently, we have now drafted the Maroubra Bay Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan to assess management approaches we can take to reduce the impact of flooding. This follows on from our 2013 Flood Study which determined the behaviour and extent of flooding in the Maroubra Bay catchment. We invite you to visit the website to view the plan and have your say.
