We’ve noticed there has been some chatter in the community about a possible residential development adjoining Sparks Park. Council is aware of a potential proposal that could involve swapping a portion of the existing park with another piece of adjoining land.
We thought you should know we haven’t actually received an application, so any speculation about what might be proposed and what it might mean for Sparks Park is premature.
If we do receive an application that involves a land swap at Sparks Park, the Council will seek the views of the community before making any decision on the application. We encourage everyone to hold fire with views on the merits of a proposal, should it come to anything, until all the details are known.
