Two Council owned properties on Como Road, adjacent to Oyster Bay Oval, are being demolished as part of a long term plan to deliver enhanced open space and recreation facilities for local residents.

The works include the demolition of the existing structures, and will be followed by reinstatement of turf. Works are expected to occur from August to December 2020.

Public impacts during construction:

• There may be some inconvenience to vehicle access whilst materials are delivered to and from site

• These works may create additional noise and dust during construction

• The works will be confined to within the two properties.

Council is working with the Contractors to ensure minimal disruption to surrounding residents and businesses. Oyster Bay Oval and surrounding parkland will remain open for use by the community while these demolition works are underway. Once completed, Sutherland Shire Council will engage with the community to develop a holistic plan for the site, ensuring that the expanded parkland best meets the needs of local residents and provides greater recreational opportunities. If you wish to discuss this matter further, please do not hesitate to contact the Sutherland Shire Council Customer Service Centre.
