Singleton Council is seeking community input to assist with the preparation of the Plan of Management for Jerrys Plains Recreation Ground, which will set out how the land will be managed and used in keeping with the requirements of the Crown Land Management Act and Local Government Act and regulation.
Community feedback is also invited on the draft Landscape Master Plan for the Jerrys Plains Recreation Ground.
The draft Landscape Masterplan provides for improved and safer pedestrian movement around the Community Arts Hall with a larger picnic or village green directly in front of the hall, as well as new parking along Wambo Street with a new vehicular access point provided for the camping area. The aim is to provide better connections between the main buildings and facilities on the land and remove vehicular and pedestrian conflict around the hall, picnic and playground area. New play equipment is to be installed in the near future.
The draft Landscape Masterplan provides for 3 stages of change/upgrade for the Recreation Ground:
Stage 1 – New playground, accessible pedestrian link, shade trees and general landscaping, highway screen planting
Stage 2 – New camping area entry road and dog-leg fence entry feature, new Wambo Road parking and pedestrian access paths, new lawn, general picnic area upgrade, stormwater upgrades
Stage 3 – Campground upgrade, new all-weather internal vehicle circuit, camp kitchen and internal paths
