Options summary

There are a number of options we would like your thoughts on and these are dependent on the type and amount of funding that can be obtained to develop and maintain the site for the long term (refer to the summary booklet and display drawings).

    What are your thoughts on Council reclassifying and rezoning land along Pittwater Road to fund the ongoing renewal costs?

    CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

    Option 1A - with a grant:

    If Council can only secure a grant that provides funds to upgrade the Oval, Council will need to find funds for ongoing renewal works – we'll need more than $1 million a year!

    What are your thoughts on a rate rise to cover the ongoing renewal costs?

    CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

    Options 1B/C - with a grant:

    What are your thoughts on a rate rise to cover the ongoing renewal costs for example either:

    1B:  A permanent rate rise to generate at least $1 million each year – a small ongoing increase in rates of 1.5%

    1C:  A fixed term special purpose rate levy to generate $15 million to be set aside in a separate trust fund that could generate interest of at least $1 million each year – a relatively higher increase in rates for a limited time of 5.5%

    Note: To put these rises in perspective if your property rates are currently $1,000 a year, you will pay an extra $15 each year forever or an extra $55 each year for five years

    What are your thoughts on the following if Council cannot secure a grant?

    CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

    Option 2A/2B without a grant

    If Council cannot secure a grant within a reasonable period of time, we need to understand your thoughts about the following options.

    2A:  Handing control of the Oval facilities to the State Government (State Trust)

    2B:  Doing nothing and thereby reducing the maintenance standard so that Oval facilities become unsuitable for professional grade sport
