Submissions Invited: Mosman Drill Hall Precinct

The Harbour Trust is inviting the public to comment on two planning matters relating to the Mosman Drill Hall Precinct

1. Draft Management Plan for Mosman Drill Hall Precinct (Amendment 1)

The Harbour Trust has prepared a draft amendment to the current Management Plan for the Mosman Drill Hall Precinct. The Drill Hall Precinct is located at the end of Cross Street, Mosman, and includes the Mosman Drill Hall, three outdoor sports courts and the Marie Bashir Mosman Sports Centre. The Harbour Trust is the planning authority for the Mosman Drill Hall Precinct.

Our current Management Plan for the Drill Hall Precinct was adopted in 2006. Under the 2006 Plan, the use of the existing outdoor courts is limited to daylight hours, and no lighting is to be provided.

The draft plan amendment includes provisions that would permit lighting of the three existing outdoor sports courts and their use for sports training up to 8.30 pm. The draft plan amendment also provides updates to reflect matters such as current site conditions and other relevant statutory planning considerations.

2. Proposed Development — Floodlighting of Outdoor Netball Courts

The Harbour Trust has received a Planning Application from Mosman Municipal Council for the installation of twelve 8-metre tall light poles (four light poles at each of the three outdoor courts) at the Mosman Drill Hall Precinct, and for the outdoor courts to be used for sports training until 8.30 pm for up to four evenings a week.
