Waverton foreshore has the opportunity to become “the envy of Sydney”, with opportunities for increased parkland, cycling paths, further on-water activities, or a place to eat and drink. Community feedback is now invited…
The NSW Government’s initiative to transform and activate Berrys Bay into open public space is seeking community input. Member for North Shore Felicity Wilson said that the Berrys Bay Community and Stakeholder Working Group, supported by Transport for NSW, is encouraging people to have their say on the future of Waverton Peninsula through a survey open until Monday 29 November.
“This is a unique opportunity for the community to help shape the vision for Waverton and the Peninsula for generations to come,” Ms Wilson said.
“People are looking to connect with green space, and the Waverton foreshore has the opportunity to become the envy of Sydney, with opportunities for increased parkland, cycling paths, further on-water activities, or a place to eat and drink.
“We want to hear the community’s perspective on the future vision for Berrys Bay and its surrounds, so we can create a place for all to enjoy while respecting the heritage and character of the area.
“I know how invested the local community is in the future of Waverton, including Berrys Bay, and we look forward to working hand in hand to get the best possible outcome.”
Transport for NSW is engaging with fellow landholders North Sydney Council, and the responses from this survey will help inform and shape the broader vision for Waverton. This will also provide valuable input into the work of the Berrys Bay Community and Stakeholder Working Group.
“The Working Group is helping determine the optimal vision and design of Berrys Bay once construction of the Western Harbour Tunnel is complete to deliver on my commitment to return Berrys Bay to locals,” Ms Wilson said. “We look forward to hearing people’s ideas and responses for this iconic part of Sydney Harbour.”
The survey closes on Monday 29 November. For more information, or to have your say, please visit:
