Liverpool City Council is encouraging residents to have their say on a strategic Masterplan for Georges River Parklands and Chipping Norton Lake.
Combined, they represent the largest and most significant waterbody in South West Sydney and are a favourite with locals for their pathways, picnic areas, wildlife, and sporting facilities.
Funded from the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment’s (DPIE) Metropolitan Greenspace Program (MGP) 2018-19 grants round, this plan provides the vision and directions to Council to improve public access to the riverfront. The strategic Masterplan focuses on four key precincts in the Georges River Parklands – Helles Park, Lake Moore, Chipping Norton Lake and Riverside Park.
Liverpool Mayor Wendy Waller said the Masterplan embraces Liverpool’s vision to be a true river city.
“Our waterways are precious, and we want to preserve them for current and future generations to enjoy. I encourage residents across the Liverpool Local Government Area to share their ideas on what recreational and leisure facilities they would like to see across these four different precincts.”
The MGP, an initiative from the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE), enables councils to apply for funding for projects that increase access to regionally significant open space.
“Through the generous funding from DPIE, we will provide even more recreation and leisure opportunities for the community,” Mayor Waller said.
