2019 Masterplan: Lawson Creek and environs

In June, 2019 Blue Mountains City Council approved a “Crown Lands Masterplan” for the former Lawson golf course site and adjoining public precincts, after many years of public consultation with and submissions from all of the stakeholders and the broader community. See:

The Masterplan delivers new environmental protections for Lawson Creek and its riparian zone and woodlands, and maintains and creates a range of community recreation and leisure facilities on the site. The South Lawson Park Bushcare Group was pleased to be part of these consultative procedures and presented written and verbal submissions to BMCC. The contribution of the bushcare group to the Masterplan consultation process was mentioned in local media:
