The Centennial Park and Moore Park Trust is seeking nominations from members of the community for two positions on its Community Consultative Committee. The committee is an advisory body made up of people who love the Parklands and want to get involved in planning for its future.
The committee's role is to represent a broad range of community interests to the Trust. It's an important channel of communication between the Trust and the many thousands of people who visit the park each year for a wide variety of activities.
The committee works closely with the Trust to develop and review its plans and policies, assist with the monitoring and evaluation of the Parklands' performance, and help with the design and delivery of services and facilities.
The committee meets six times a year and members are appointed for a two-year term. Nominees should have a sound knowledge of Trust lands, experience in community consultation and a strong appreciation of the role and significance of the Parklands in Sydney's wider urban environment.
Protecting and growing our parks and open public spaces is something particularly close to my heart. And since 75 per cent of City of Sydney residents now live in high-density developments, ensuring that we all have access to great parks, playgrounds and green spaces is critical.
I encourage local residents who are passionate about preserving and improving the Parklands to take advantage of this opportunity and get involved. For more information or to apply, click here.
