Councils’ draft plan of management for Railway Park, their desire to change the classification from Park to General Community Use deserves attention.
Council’s stated reasons of promoting its use for passive recreation and allowing the use of the space for local gatherings, artisans’ markets and the installation of artworks are thoroughly catered for in the Park classification.
The General Community Use classification, in addition allows for development elements including commercial and non-commercial. These are not available in the Park classification.
What other requirements do Council have in mind?
