Draft Walking Tracks Strategy

The purpose of the Draft Walking Tracks Strategy is to provide a framework for the management, enhancement and on-going maintenance of recreational walking tracks on Council owned or managed land within the Wingecarribee Shire. It also identifies a cohesive track network that offers active and challenging recreational experiences encompassing the Shire’s diverse and distinctive landscapes.

The Draft Strategy provides guidance on the walking tracks at 16 Council owned or managed bushland reserves with authorised walking tracks. It identifies and categorises walking track difficulty level, along with a comprehensive strategy and action plan for future works.

Background research, on-ground trail auditing, mapping and extensive stakeholder consultation was completed earlier in 2020 which has informed development of the draft now exhibited.

Balmoral Naming

Over recent years Wingecarribee Shire Council has become aware that the name Balmoral has caused various problems for residents because it is duplicated as the name of suburbs elsewhere. Comments from the community have stated that Balmoral in the Southern Highlands is often confused with ‘Balmoral’ in Sydney, and ‘Balmoral’ in Lake Macquarie, leading to delivery and service issues which require considerable effort to overcome.

Council is writing to the Balmoral-Buxton community to seek feedback on a naming proposal.

See www.yoursaywingecarribee.com.au/balmoral for details. The survey will close on 9 October 2020.

Masterplan for Casburn Park, Wingello

It is time to plan for a smarter, accessible, fun and engaging Casburn Park for all to enjoy!

Wingecarribee Shire Council has engaged a specialist consultant to prepare a masterplan for Casburn Park and would love to hear from you. How do you use the park? What would you like to see happen to the park? Whatever your interest and needs, we’d love to hear which aspects are most important to you and what needs to be refreshed, removed, replaced or upgraded.

We have recently undertaken a geographic survey of the site and the next step is to hear from the community and stakeholders. The aim is to get as much feedback and direction from participants as possible, to help us build a masterplan that will shape Casburn Park.

Get Involved!
Join us for a PARK TALK. Our project team will have some displays and interactive activities set up to share information, display sketches and talk about the scope of our improvement work. Come along to see what others have said, add your own ideas and lend support to proposed improvements.

Renwick Community Survey

A Community Centre will be built at Renwick by UrbanGrowth NSW / Landcom in the near future.

Once built the Community Centre will become a Council owned facility and therefore require a management plan to ensure that its use and ongoing maintenance is administered correctly. We are seeking community involvement in the development of this plan and are currently inviting residents to complete a survey.
