Warringah Council Meeting to vote on whether it will support the Bare Creek Mountain Bike Park!!!

25th May 2014

Bare Creek MTB Bike Park Belrose needs YOUR Help!!!

Do you want a purpose built bike park on the Northern Beaches??? 

We need your help !!!

1) Attend the Council Meeting on Tuesday 27-May-2014 where council will be voting on whether on not to take on the management of the planned MTB park. (Meeting starts at 6pm sharp)

2) Pick up your pens and write to the politicians listed below. 

This is your opportunity to ensure that the Northern Beaches has a dedicated off road bike riding facility, but it won’t happen unless you show your support. Without your action, this facility will be doomed. The Council vote is on May 27, please come along and show your support 

Remember the Hornsby Council Meeting regarding Old Man's Valley? We could have the same success if we get the support.

The issues behind the Belrose Bike Park are now starting to firm up. There is a DA for its use as a bike park and Council will be meeting on the 27th May to vote on whether it will support the facility – at present it does not have the required number of votes. The issue at the heart of this is that current estimates indicate around $200k of annual costs for maintenance and Council are reluctant to take on further recreational costs if there is little perceived support from the community.

The park and its trails will be designed to best practice and while not rivalling Stromlo will be an exciting venue. The costs of construction of the trails will be met out of the budgets for the Belrose tip site remediation budgets. There is the prospect of a substantial downhill and cross country bike facility being established. It isn’t often that a 35 hectare site comes onto the market.

For more information please go to this link or to an earlirt post on the AMBC Facebook to give you a better understanding of what we're trying to achieve.

NB. The entrance to the Council Chambers is on Civic Drive, above the carpark. (the Council's address is listed as 725 Pittwater Rd, which is a bit confusing).

Mountain biking and Cyclocross need your support to create a world class bike park at Belrose. A big part of this is to show Manly Warringah council that there is a huge demand for this type of recreation facility and that it will be a very popular destination, not just for local riders but also the greater MTB community.

Please see the attached proposal developed by Seuter Planners with the help of IMBA Australia; 


Your help by emailing the local Councillors and expressing your views. 

mayor@warringah.nsw.gov.au, vanessa.moskal@warringah.nsw.gov.au, wayne.gobert@warringah.nsw.gov.au, vincent.deluca@warringah.nsw.gov.au, sue.heins@warringah.nsw.gov.au, bob.giltinan@warringah.nsw.gov.au, pat.daley@warringah.nsw.gov.au, roslyn.harrison@warringah.nsw.gov.au, duncan.kerr@warringah.nsw.gov.au, jose.menano-pires@warringah.nsw.gov.au

The next council meeting is 27th May 2014, so these emails need to find their target before this date.
