Council is calling on the community to have their say on the upgrade of the BMX facility at Carmichael Park in Bellbird, and by doing so, there are great prizes to be won!
Council has engaged Bike Tracks Australia and Bligh Tanner to develop a concept plan to upgrade Cessnock’s only public BMX facility. As part of this, Council wants to know what the community values in a BMX facility and what elements are important to them, so community ideas can be incorporated into the concept plan.
Residents can have their say in a number of ways, including:
The concept plan will be made available for further community feedback and comment before being reported to Council in early 2022.
Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent said this facility will provide greater opportunity for young riders to enhance their skills and encouraged residents to have their say.
“Earlier this year, Council applied for funding under the NSW Government’s Resources for Regions program to fund a $250,000 upgrade to the BMX facility. Developing a concept plan is the first step in getting construction under way, which will hopefully kick off in 2022,” added Cr Pynsent.
