BMX Pump Track on Jerry Bailey Oval, Shoalhaven Heads is a community-led
project by a sub-group of the Shoalhaven Heads Community Forum. To date the
group has delivered an unsealed Pump Track to the site. A long-term goal of
the Community Forum is to have the track sealed, to reduce the need for
maintenance and increase the number of users and variety of uses for the track
(ie skateboarding, scootering, etc).
Council’s Ordinary Meeting on 28 May 2019, Council resolved to give
in-principle approval to seal the Pump Track subject to the outcome of the community consultation process.
proposed that the Pump Track will be sealed with asphalt, being a mixture of
aggregate and bituminous binder. The asphalt will be delivered to the site and
light machinery will be used to place it on the track. Manual labour and
compactor plates will then be used to level and smooth the final surface. It is
anticipated that the works will take approximately 10 days, weather permitting.
undertook community consultation in late 2018 regarding the proposal for an
unsealed track. Further community consultation must now be undertaken to
determine the level of support and need for the sealing of the track and to
provide community members with the opportunity to give feedback. In conjunction
with this consultation, Council will complete Native Title Assessments and a
Review of Environmental Factors.
