Draft Plan of Management for Gipps Street Recreation Precinct

Council has prepared the Draft Plan of Management (POM) for the Gipps Street Recreation Precinct. This is the next step in the development of the project, to provide direction and inform decisions as to the use and management of Council-owned community land in the Gipps Street Recreation Precinct. The Draft POM is a requirement of the Local Government Act.

The Draft POM was put on public exhibition from Tuesday 25 June until Monday 22 July 2024. Submissions for the Draft POM can be made until 11.59pm on Monday 5 August 2024.

You can download the Draft POM from the 'Related Documents' section located on the right-hand side of the screen, and submit comments by emailing: gippsstrecreationprecinct@penrith.city

Please note: consultation and feedback for the final design and Master Plan for the Gipps Street Recreation Precinct concluded in March 2021 and will not form part of this public exhibition.
