Submissions closed on 29 November 2020, 11:59 PM


In late 2017 and early 2019 the City of Ryde asked for your ideas and suggestions for how ELS Hall Park can be managed, maintained and improved now and into the future.

Based on your feedback, Council prepared a Masterplan which was adopted in May 2019 and a draft Plan of Management which is now on public exhibition until Sunday 29 November 2020.

The purpose of the draft Plan of Management is to identify objectives and targets and propose strategies to protect and guide future maintenance and management of ELS Hall Park.

Council is also proposing to re-categorise four small portions of ELS Hall Park to reflect current and future park use in accordance with the adopted Masterplan.
