Consultation has concluded

Council has prepared a Draft Master Plan for the future of Gough Whitlam and Waterworth Parks consisting of both proposed and optional works.


The former Canterbury City Council resolved to complete a Plan of Management for Gough Whitlam Park and Waterworth Park in Earlwood. Both archery and a bike safety recreation facility had to be considered as part of this Plan of Management.

The new City of Canterbury Bankstown has reviewed the previous resolutions and has determined that the Plan of Management be postponed and alternatively, Draft Master Plan options be publicly exhibited to determine the future uses of the sites.

After a final Master Plan is developed and adopted, a Plan of Management will be written and exhibited for the site based on the adopted master plan for the parks.
