Tempe Reserve Plan of Management

Background

In June and July this year, we asked the community how they use Tempe Reserve and how they want to use it into the future. We have used that feedback along with expert advice and extensive research to develop the proposed Tempe Reserve Plan of Management and Master Plan.

Read the Community Engagement Summary from page 59 of the Plan of Management.

We are required to have Plans of Management for all community land in the Inner West. In November 2018, Council adopted an Inner West Open Space Areas Plans of Management Priority List.


What is happening now?

We have developed a proposed Plan of Management and Master Plan and want to know what you think about it.

  • Read the Plan of Management PDF which covers the planning, use and management of the parks over the next 10 years and includes licenses and leases
  • Read the Master Plan PDF which outlines a vision and actions for improvement over the next 10 years


Key proposals

We have highlighted some of the things that we are proposing for Tempe Reserve

  • Improve road safety
  • Introduce synthetic sports fields, including AFL
  • Introduce a dragon boat storage facility
  • Medium term replacement of the Robyn Webster sports centre with new indoor sports facilities including spaces for arts and music and a community café
  • Demolish the former Jets club
  • Demolish old bowling club and greens, and dedicate the space to community use
  • Increase quantity and quality of amenities
  • Preserve, enhance and increase the area of natural environments and native bushland

Proposals for Sydney Gateway land *still to be determined. Council is advocating for the provision of up to six futsal courts, a new off leash dog area and improved leachate facility.


Have your say

Read through the proposed Plan of Management and Master Plan and let us know what you think by filling out the feedback form.

The last day to provide feedback is Sunday 9 December 2019


What happens next?

After the engagement period, the Parks Planning team will review and consider community feedback before finalising the plans.

Part of Tempe Reserve is owned by the NSW Government and requires a land categorisation. This land is managed by Council for community benefit, however we require the NSW Government to approve our categories before the Plan of Management can be adopted. This impacts several parks in the Inner West. Once the categorisations have been approved, the draft Plan of Management and draft Master Plan will be exhibited for 28 days.

The plans will then go to the elected Council for adoption
