Shoalhaven City Council has been working with the local community to determine an appropriate use for the Council owned parcel of land at Larmer Avenue, adjacent to the southern side of Cockrow Creek. It is widely acknowledged that the site is constrained for future development by some interesting environmental values. This opens up opportunities for passive recreation and conservation initiatives.  

A community steering committee was formed and has developed a draft concept plan that is sensitive to the natural values of the site, while providing for its use as a wetland conservation area.

The steering committee is seeking ideas and comments about the proposal and future potential uses of the site and what it means for the local community.

* 2. What do you consider are acceptable activities in a conservation area?

* 3. How would you use this area?

* 4. Do you think disabled access is important?

* 5. What benefits do you think the proposal will add to the local area? (select as many as you like)
